    Welcome to the week of May 11th, 2020! I miss you all and am excited for the fall when we are working together in person again! Here are a few reminders of things to know about:

    1. I'm going to push everything out each Monday.  It will be due each Friday at 3pm.
    2. You may work at your own pace.
    3. If this is taking you more than 2 hours per week, I need to know so I can adjust the assignments.
    4. I have Google Meets meeting office hours to meet with you as a group (each grade level).

         6th grade Thursday at 9am

         7th grade Thursday at 12:30pm 

         8th grade Thursday at 1:00pm

    If these times do not work for you please e-mail me and I'll make an arrangement for an individual meeting on Google Hangouts.

    1. If you have questions to ask individually, let me know in our Google Meets time or by e-mail and I'll set up an individual Google Meet. If you prefer e-mail that's fine too.
    2. Labs - Keep in mind lab safety procedures (modify them since I cannot clean up spills or broken equipment at your home).
    3. My weekly announcement will be posted on my website as well, it will have directions to log into Canvas for your assignments. 
    4. If I have not covered something, I will add it on to another announcement. 

    Until I see you all (and even after I do), be safe, be smart, STAY HEALTHY and wash your hands. :-)
