Monday, April 6 - Thursday, April 9

 Good Morning!
   I have posted the assignments for this week in Google Classroom.  Students have 5 spiral review bellworks to work on throughout the week. These will be submitted to my Google Drive.  Students will receive full credit for completing and submitting the bellworks.  If a student has difficulty with the assignments, I will work with them and give them an opportunity to redo it.  Students should also continue working in ALEKS.  I have set a goal of 30 minutes and 2 topics for this week.  Students are encourage to work in ALEKS as much as possible.   
   After Spring Break, I will post a schedule of Zoom classes that students may participate in.  I will offer acual instruction, as well as time for students to ask specific questions about their work on a class assignment or in ALEKS.  I look forward to seeing the students and hearing about how they are doing. 
Stay safe and healthy!
