Mrs. Trippodo- Title 1 Reading

Welcome to School 17 where "Learning is fun!

Dear Parents & Students,

Welcome back to Distance Learning. This is going to be a challanging year for all of us. We will continue to use Microsoft Teams for meetings, communication and assignments.I will still use Class DoJo as well.

This quarter, I will be working with the Title 1 students remotely. There will be no "in person" instruction for safety reasons. (space, sharing of desks, chairs, materials, etc.)

Please check the Teams calendar daily so you are aware of reading meetings.

Below is a link to help you understand the way Microsoft Teams works.
