Hi Everyone! I hope that you are all doing well! I still missing seeing you and your smiles each day! As you know from the Penn Manor communication that has been sent out, things start to change a bit the week of April 13th. I wanted to take the time to outline some of these changes for you. Please don’t hesitate to email with any questions. I’m here to help!
*New Curriculum Information – Beginning Monday, April 13, ALL students are expected to complete the posted activities, they are no longer optional. Students can work at their own pace on the various activities throughout the week of April 13th. As a guideline, students should spend somewhere between 60 – 90 minutes a day on these activities (They vary in length of completion). Completed work will be recorded in Sapphire as “Received” throughout the week. New assignments will then be posted each week.
*Google Classroom – Students will see all of the same activities that are listed on this link (new expected activities will be posted on Monday, April 13th) AND in our Google Classroom. I’m encouraging students to complete the posted assignments within our Google Classroom, so that I can respond to student work right on each assignment and so that it is easier to track and record all student work. Students will need to go to the heading “Classwork” and then find the topic titled “Week of April 13th”. Each assignment will be posted as an individual assignment under that topic and will include a set of directions for how to complete each one. Students do need to click the blue button (top right corner) of each assignment in order for me to receive each one. I will go over all of these expectations with your child on Monday, April 13th when we have our Google Meet as a class (see more about this below).
*Office Hours -I will have office hours beginning Monday from 9:00 – 9:30 and again from 2:00-2:30 each day, Monday through Friday. I will also respond to emails/work throughout regular school day hours too. Again, I am here to help!
*Student Email Accounts – Parents, if you are able, would you please help your child check his/her school email account? These can be accessed through the icon that looks like a waffle on the top right. I have sent 2 emails to the students. One email is a “test email” that asks them to resp0nd back to me if they were able to find and open my email. The second email is an invitation to a Google Meet for Monday, April 13th at 10:00. I currently have 11/24 students joining me on the Meet, but I would love to have 24/24! If students need help with this, I posted a tutorial on how to open up your email in my Google classroom. Additionally, if students need help accepting my invitation to our Google Meet, please email me.
*Blog Updates – Finally, if you haven’t subscribed to the Central Manor Blog, you may want to consider doing so. This is an easy way to stay connected with school wide announcements. Thank you!
*Thank you – I cannot thank you enough for ALL that you are doing and have done all school year long. I am here to help us finish the year strong in this new way of teaching and learning. Penn Manor, Central Manor and I are here for you and your family! Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions and/or concerns. I will continue to do my best to meet your child’s needs and interests for the remainder of the school year!
