Ms. Serpa's Class
Good morning students and parents! I am going to be here each day 8:30 - 12:00. Please feel free to reach out and ask me any questions. Stay indoors and be safe!
The way to reach me is at the school's email address. That is firstname.lastname@example.org You can also call me at HOME 914-437-8502 from 8:30-12:00pm.
**** All the work that is expected of your child is here to the left where it says "Assignments". Submit work to me on FRIDAYS and I will provide you with feedback to you as necessary. Please find your child's grade and complete the attached work that is there. If you do not have a computer, the apps like Freckle, xtramath, and Epic can be accessed through a phone or a computer. Class Dojo is just another way I have communicated with parents and kids on the phone.
If you have access to email, and a printer, I can also send you the links for materials to print.
9:00-9:30 EPIC! Reading (login: jcg7583)

In the next few days, I am going to try to create meetings on Microsoft Teams for each grade level of students. This will give us a chance to talk and communicate about "distance learning". I will email you to coordinate a time for us to meet.
I will also post assignments there. The way to access "Teams" is through your Clever account.
Please continue to connect with me through email, by phone, or through ClassDojo.
I decided that instead of reviewing your child's work daily, you can submit work on Fridays of each week. I am keeping record of who is turning assignments here. Any questions, do not hesitate to call or write.
