    Engagement Expectations

    Students must meaningfully engage in each subject area during the week as evidenced by one or more of the following:

    1. Participating in Zoom meetings

    2. Logging on to assigned programs (Zearn, Amplify Reading, Google Classroom, etc...) & engaging in work

    3. Turning in assignments and/or tests



    Not every assignment will be for a grade; Some are to focus on the learning process rather than performance outcomes.

    Students will not be penalized for late or missing assignments. If your child has an issue accessing or completing one please let me know. All assginment will be due every Friday by 3:30.
