Hello Future Artists!
As I am sure you have heard, school is currently out until May 15th due to the increasing concerns with Covid-19. Because of this, I know that many of you will be spending a large amount of time at home. I would like to provide you with resources that you can use as this break continues. Some of these resources are just simply information about artists or free online resources, but I also plan to share videos/lessons (starting the week of March 30th) where I instruct you how to create simple art pieces at home with some tools/materials that you may have (pencils, crayons, and etc). Please join our google classroom for your grade level if you have not already done so to keep updated on the things that I have to share! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for our google classroom code! Thanks!

Where is Mrs. Wall?
10:30-10:50--Remainder of Planning
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
