I can't believe we're entering our FINAL week of school.
It's been a CRAZY year but I am so thankful that we've remained in touch and I've seen students work so hard the remainder of this year!
Tomorrow we will have our FINAL class meeting and I have a SWEET surprise! I hope we have as many students as possible sign on because I have rewards to give the kids! I know it's virtual but every year I give the kids awards for what they've accomplished throughout the year.  I can't wait to go through them tomorrow with our students.
Reminder: Work will still be posted this week & if you want to sign up for summer school, I believe the final day is Friday the 12th. Report cards will be e-mailed on the 12th as well!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, let me know and here's to a great FINAL week of school!

*REMINDER: Everything that has been provided to you is OPTIONAL and will not receive a grade. I understand how valuable time is and realize that we all operate on different schedules throughout the week. The most important thing you can have your student continue to do during this time is READ! (independently, with you,with an older/younger sibling, or with a babysitter).

The 2019-2020 face to face school year has come to an end, but the learning will continue online! See below for important continuing education information:
Here, on the homepage, I will be posting a weekly update (videos, pictures, or a short message). You will be able to access important resources and links underneath of the other tabs:

Useful Links: Here you can find resources; learning games, and other important links that you may need.

I want to make sure that I am clear that anything I post on the website for students to do is OPTIONAL. Per the PWCS regulations about home school at this time, anything I have for students to do is not to go over 2-3 hours maximum in a day.  Students may choose to do anything that is posted.

I look forward to keeping in touch with my class this year. Please feel free to e-mail me at with any questions or message me on Class Dojo!

Please stay home and stay healthy! I miss you all!
