New Curriculum This Week!

Hi Families!

This week we will start teaching new curriculum. This content has not yet been taught. We are working to put many resources on our google classroom sites for you to access easily. Please be patient with us as we are all trying to work through this together.  Our “official” office hours are from 9-10 AM daily, however we continue to monitor email on a regular basis. We are here to help you in any way we can. Our goal is to touch base with every student on each activity that is turned in. We hope to maintain this goal throughout the rest of the year. 

We are getting quite a few questions as we are continuing our online learning journey, so we wanted to take the time to address some of the ones that are coming up.

  1. What about specials?  Students are expected to complete approximately 30 minutes of specials (physical education, art, music, applied engineering) a day.  Students should try to vary their special throughout the week. This work should be turned in to the specialists directly so your child can get the credit for their work. Below are the current specialists for the second half of the year and their email addresses if you should have any questions:

Art – emily.compton@pennmanor.net

P.E. – jason.binkley@pennmanor.net

Music – sarah.repkoe@pennmanor.net

Applied Engineering – mark.andrew@pennmanor.net  

  1. Do Xtra Math and Splash Math count as an activity?  Xtra Math and Splash Math are both important so students have a strong basis for basic facts as they enter 4th grade, but are not counted as “received” activities.
  2. What needs to be turned in to us each week? Beginning with this week’s activities page you will see check boxes on the assignment pages for items that need to be submitted to your child’s teacher. 
  3. Should we turn in assignments all at once or as we finish?  We are fine with whatever is easiest for you!  All activities are being recorded in Sapphire as “received”. If you feel your child’s teacher has missed a submission due to email overload :), please email them to double check.
  4. What if my child had a different math teacher? All english-language arts, math, science, and social studies work needs to go to your homeroom teacher.
