Message from the teacher....... 

Hey guys! I miss you very much and cannot wait to see your sweet faces again. I want you to encourage you to continue to learn and recognize that learning does not just take place in our classroom, but it takes place with you and your decision to learn in all places and in this situation being all cases. I have put some things together for you below and will be adding to them weekly.

 I will be in touch with you through Remind and class Dojo over the next few weeks. You can post pics on Dojo in your class portfolio which is found in the icon( Class Story)
