  • Your child should currently be working on their 10-day packets which were distibuted 2 weeks ago. These packets contained review materials essential to their at-home learning. 

    New assignments for all students will begin on 4/20/2020. In an effort to make comepleting enhancement activities easy, the enhancement teachers have created a Google slide presentation containing all enhacement assignments on a weekly basis. There will also be a Friday Funday choice board to aid in providing brain breaks which will be needed for their daily studies. 

    A link to the Enhancement Google Assignments will be posted on my web page in the coming next week.
