Focus Points for this week:
• Log into our Google Classroom “home base” and submit the assignments for this week.
• PE Activities

Important Information:
As a school, K-8, we will now post our new Google Classroom assignments and Newsletters every Friday at 3:00. Look for these changes starting this Friday, May 1st. This will give your family time to plan for the week.

Google Classroom:
I encourage your child check our Google Classroom page often. This is our “home base” and all our assignments and announcements will be posted here. Look in the “upcoming” section or classwork section to see assignments. These will be due Monday, May 4th.

Please “turn in” or “Submit” all activities that you are doing so I know you have done them. The ones that require you to write answers, please use the Google Doc I have created on the assignment to submit your answers. If it is easier for your child to write them out, please submit a pdf.

Correcting Assignments: I am correcting assignments that are turned in and will send comments/feedback back to your child. Please give me grace on a timeline of returning corrections back to you. When you turn in an assignment on Google Classroom, make sure you push the “turn in” button otherwise I can’t see what you turned in.

Zoom Conferences:
If you would like to have a Zoom or phone conference with me, please sign up using the Google Doc below. I am excited to have a face to face meetings with parents as a way to check in and see how everyone is doing. These are completely optional.

Class Zoom Meeting:

• Thursday’s Agenda (Spiritual/Community Building):
o Prayer
o Religion Discussion
o Read a Chapter in our class book.

Silverwood:
Please continue to log your reading for Silverwood! If your child finishes the log, your parent can take a picture of it and email it to me. Silverwood has extended the due date to April 30th. I will then issue your child a ticket through email. I can’t accept any late logs.

Weekly Schedule:
• Below is a schedule for you. Please customize a schedule that works best for your family. This may look different for each of us and that is OK. Please only spend 2-3 hours a day on class assignments and remember you don’t have to do every subject every day.
