Good morning!


On a regular day, we would be getting here, eating breakfast (if you eat here at school), putting stuff in our lockers, and getting ready for the day!  I'm being "observed" today, so I've cc'd Mr. King on our Daily Email as part of our "instruction".

  • Stressing about the paper packets or Social Studies on Moby Max?  Don't worry, you're not the only one!  With that said, here are some thoughts...........
    • It doesn't have to be right/correct.  
    • Make a good faith effort.  We do the paper packets in a small group setting and can use others to spur the conversation/discussion/lesson along at don't have that luxury!  
    • As I've talked to folks, I've encouraged them to try the paper packet; focus more on Moby Max; and yes, Social Studies is currently on the Byzantine Empire, but you'll eventually work through that unit.  
    • Expect changes if we don't return on 4/20 and have to continue instruction past 4/20.  They are encouraging us to focus on more online instruction.
