All of my Middle/High School classes are now using Google Classroom for assignments. The sign in for Classroom is the same as the student's log in for the school internet. On Google Classroom you will find all assignment directions, worksheets and projects. All work is turned in, graded and returned using Google Classroom.
Each class that I am currently teaching has a specific page(s) listed on the left hand column. Please click on that class name to find extra resources for your student's class. Assignment dates may be changed due to activities in the classroom. Please ask your student to update you on date changes.
I make every attempt to respond to emails in a timely manner, usually at the end of the day. This is the quickest way for me to get messages. Please be aware that other responsibilities may prevent me from responding the same day.
Family and Consumer Science classes are experience based. Points are earned daily by completing projects, experiences and labs on time and with proper participation. Students who are absent must see the teacher the day they return during homeroom for make-up work. When a period is missed the student must make-up the time missed during study hall or homeroom or they will receive zero points. This must be completed within one week of returning to school after an absence.
If you can't read a file on the website, perhaps it is because the files are incompatible. For example, the district does not use Word Perfect, so students who submit electronic versions of work in this format have problems as it cannot be read here. We primarily use Google products. This is a free product you can download with cloud storage. I hope this is helpful as we strive to communicate more effectively.
