    Dear Fifth Grade Parents,

    We are getting ready to start Schoology next week. There has been a learning curve with this application and I ask that you bear with us as we learn it. I have spent part of this week learning and adding content to it. Please view Ms. Bair's video below on how to access Schoology.

    Next week's courses are as follows. I will send out Khan Academy log ins individually. Students are to use their network log in to access Schoology. Let me know via ClassDojo if you need assistance.

    Reading: Wonders materials and links. Please use your old log in (network username and password is cssd11)

    Math: Khan Academy: I will provide each family with their log ins via ClassDojo.

    Writing: Please see the writing assignment and submit through 365 Office (Live Word document like we did for PBL)

    Mondays: Teacher work day

    Tuesdays- Fridays: Class assignments, class meetings

    Thursday afternoons we can meet virtually as a classroom for those of you that are able to. I will add a link to this page.

    Fridays: All assignments due.

    Office hours: I will be available to video chats on Tuesdays and Wednesdays afternoons from 2 to 3 pm. Otherwise, my hours will be 8 am until 3:45 pm. If you ask me a question during the day, I plan on getting back to you in a few hours. If it's after 3:45, it will be next day.

    Otherwise, please reach out to me via ClassDojo if you have questions or concerns.
