Dear Sixth Grade Familes,
I hope you are all well. Over the last few days, I have been communicating with as many parents and students as possible. If you are not on ClassDojo(most of you are) I would need an email or phone number to add you. You could also download the ClassDojo app and find my class and send a request to be added.
If your child is able to log onto their MicroSoft 365 account, I created a way for them to communicate directly with me. After logging in, have them select the teams app. They should be able to message me directly.
I am working on creating videos to share with the children. Until then, continue to do work I have provided on Clever. There are assignments on Castle Learning, CommonLit, Sumdog, and Edulastic.
If you need to contact me use ClassDojo or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
