Hello 1st-2nd grade students, parents, and guardians. This will be the page where you can find any updates, messages, and assignments. I will post assignments each week for the remaining time off of school. Students are expected to work on assignments the best they can, however, they will have a couple weeks to turn in any work after they return to school. We will pick up at school where I leave off of online, so they're still expected to know the material. If your child works with Ms. Flippo or Mr. M. for any classes, please check each of their class pages as well. 3rd quarter has now ended, so report cards will be sent to houses within the next couple weeks. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this hectic time.

Week 4: 4/6-4/10

I set out a box outside of the school near the door to my classroom for parents to drop off any finished work. If you would like to pick up any books or materials from your child's desk, please let me know, so I can leave things out for you. I can give you their Superkids books so you don't have to read and print everything out each week. Parents, please give your child minimal help on their math test. I want to see where the students are at, so I can figure out what I need to do differently.

:45 means quarter to (the next hour)

  • Because of the difficulty of teaching this though distance learning, I'm skipping the section on transformations, but if you decide you want to do the assignments we didn't get to this year, I'll quickly explain: Translation=slide     rotation=turn     reflection=flip
