Hello, and welcome “back” to school, Falcon families!

As we make the transition to Distance Learning, I want to remind both students and families that this is a new experience for all of us. Let's be patient and support each other as we navigate through these changes.

I don’t know about all of you, but I am so grateful that we live in a digital age, where we have the opportunity to continue learning and connecting online. I’m excited to see how our venture into Distance Learning progresses and what new skills we can work on in this format.

I will primarily be using Google Classroom and Springboard in order to facilitate learning. Should other means of student-teacher and student-student communication prove to be valuable to the learning process, I will make adjustments. 

I will post new work daily in order to help students continue to think critically, read, write, reflect, and discuss, just as we do in our physical classroom. Each daily response allows me to know that students are in class and participating. This tells me that they are taking responsibility for their education and allows me to give feedback and keep in touch with them daily.

At this point, grades are still a bit unclear. I will be keeping track of student work and giving feedback. My advice is for students to take the time to do the work that is assigned. It can only help their grade and, more importantly, help them continue developing the skills needed in order to prepare for next year and beyond. 

The best way to reach me is via email Monday-Friday from 8am-3:30pm. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
