Error in google classroom

Students and families, I had some errors in uploading google classroom for this past week. I want you to know that I still could see all of your answers. I will make sure I have everything correct for next week. Thanks for understanding as I am learning totally new things. Just like you students, some things I remember really well and other things are taking a little longer for me to remember! Thanks for your patience and understanding!

House Points Marking Period 4 update!

Students, 

Wow! Not only do you make responsible and respectful choices at school but this week you demonstrated it at home as well. Congratulations to House Kalosyni for earning the most house points this last week, however, the competition is close and any team can take the lead as we head into the 2nd week of the house competition at home. Remember:

  1. You may only earn points for one activity in each point category this week. 
  2. Make sure to have your parents or guardians complete the form by Saturday at Midnight. 
  3. Consider emailing pictures of you demonstrating responsible and respectful behaviors at home to eshhouses@gmail.com

Here is the link to the House Points Form for the week of April 20th.

Happy Faces Learning!!

Great Job!!!! Makerspace meeting on Friday!!

Great job parents and students!

Great job on the new curriculum and turning in your work in the google classroom. A couple of items that I have learned from the past 24 hours. Students, I can see your answers on the google forms so if your answer is correct, but you worded it differently, don’t worry if the form marks it wrong.

Also, just remember that some of the work is found in google classroom an some of the work is found on the remote learning site. If you can’t find something… please email me and I will send you a link!

MakerSpace meeting this Friday!

If you made something cool in the past 4 or 5 weeks and would like to share it with our class, please come to our google meet on Friday. We will hold the google meet at 11am on Friday!! Come hang out and show some cool things you have been working on. The classroom link is turned off right now, but on Friday I will turn it on. Get creative this week so that you have some thing to share…. legos, art, singing, paper crafts, dance moves, forts! The meet link is below.

New week of learning! Here is what you need to know!

New content is up on the Remote learning site!

https://sites.google.com/pennmanor.net/remotelearning/elementary/third-grade?authuser=0

Students should take advantage of the learning opportunities on a daily basis. Don’t forget about activities posted by specialists (ex. art, music, physical education, library, and applied engineering). Specialist activities are separated by subject under the elementary tab. Social studies concepts will be integrated into ELA activities when applicable in order to help allow time to expose students to the remaining science topics for the year.

Class Meeting Today at 10:30

Click on the link in google classroom in the stream or click on link here! If you can be on with your child for the first 15 to 20 minutes. I will be giving instructions about how the weeks will go from now until the end of the school year. The rest of meeting will be focused with connecting with the students.
