Welcome parents and guardians to Mrs. Thoma's 3rd grade class! I just wanted to introduce myself and to tell you how excited and honored I am to be teaching your children this year.
Please note that the district will be using Microsoft Teams this school year. While our class has not been activated yet, you should get acquainted with the software. The district has provided information on Microsoft Teams on the YPS District homepage under “For Parents”. Please see the below link to the site.
As we start the current school year remotely, please use the TEAMS app if you are using a school laptop, which can be found on the desktop. If you do not have the TEAMS app, please log into Clever, find Office 365 (favorite it), go to Microsoft Teams and find your classes. All instruction, assignments and communication (besides email) will take place there. Students should use their 6 digit ID @yonkerspublicschools.org and use their date of birth mm/dd/yyyy (example 09/08/2020) as their password. If they are prompted to create a new password it should be their first name and the number 1 (example caterina1). This ID and password will be used to access all sites through Clever so it is important they remember both. I will also ask you to favorite certain links we will be using frequently in Clever as well. I will be available on Microsoft Teams chat for direct help and instruction (any change to this will be posted a day in advance on Microsoft Teams). You can of course message or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org)at any other time and I will respond as quickly as possible.
I have sent invitations for you to download the Class Dojo App and connect to my class, please do so before Tuesday, September 8th.
I will send more detailed instructions to follow. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
