    The 2020-21 school year

     is going to be the best year ever!

    Welcome Gavilan Peak Third Grade!  I would like to introduce myself as your third grade ELA and Social Studies teacher.  This year is unique since we will be completing quarter 1 virtually.  This is new for all of us, and even looks different than the spring semester.  Please know that we will take it slow and learn together as we go.

    This website and email will be used as a primary communication tool all year.  We will not start academic learning until the week of August 10, so we have time to learn how to navigate Canvas together.  We want to get to know each other, and will use Zoom for live learning.  There will be a direct Zoom link through Canvas.  I will send an email by the end of Friday, July 31 which will include my zoom link.  You may want to bookmark the link, too.  Please plan to join your homeroom teacher in the morning for their 8:15 zoom session, and your afternoon teacher for the 12:05 session.  We fully realize that virtual learning can be a scheduling challenge in your household.  If we see participation in zoom and/or daily assignments by 2:00 of each day, your attendance will be recorded.

    I look forward to meeting you.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  My contact is kristina.shoger@dvusd.org.
