Mrs. Ashley Ringwood
Welcome to 7th grade Language Arts! I am excited to be working with you for the 2020/2021 school year. I am a graduate of Eastern Michigan University with a degree in Secondary Education (Social Studies and Economics concentration). My teaching career started in my hometown of Detroit, Michigan where I taught high school Social Studies and Economics. An opportunity then moved me to Phoenix, Arizona where I have spent the past 5 years teaching middle school Social Studies and English. I look forward to starting my 7th year of teaching here at Swift Creek with all of you!
This course will primarily be based on Google Classroom. We will also be utilizing Google Meets in order for students to receive live instruction from myself and other teachers on the team. Please check PowerSchool and Google Classroom frequently to stay on top of your studies.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. You can contact me by phone, email, or attend office hours. Communication is key for a successful school year!

- On Wednesdays, students will NOT be on Google Meets with teachers, but they WILL have assignments to complete on Google Classroom.
- Please check your schedule and ALL classes to determine which class you will be attending at each time on each day. I recommend purchasing or creating your own calendar to keep track of class meeting times.
All materials that students need will be posted on Google Classroom.
Please encourage your child to check Google Classroom daily, participate in class, and turn in assignments on time.
If your child does NOT have access to Google Classroom, please email me so I can add them!

We are offering a new opportunity for our families this winter break. Parents are invited to sign up to receive holiday meal kits that will be distributed from all of our high school sites. Each meal kit will include seven days of packaged breakfast and lunch meals per child.
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.
