    Hello Parents and students: 

    Welcome Spring!

    As the weather becomes nicer outside, our children may want to spend time after school to play, which is wonderful! Please make sure that at some point that the children attend to the classwork that they may not have finished each day and or the homework they need to complete for each day. For each week,(except when we are on break) students are assigned 1 hour of I ready for Math and ELA and 1 hour of reading plus activities per week. For Science, students may also have minutes to complete in Readorium which is an online program in which students can learn science related topics.  

    Wednesdays are asynchronous days for instruction. Although there are no google meets on Wednesdays, teachers assign work that they know students can complete independently. Students are often given the opportunity to make up work they have not completed on Wednesdays. 


    Monday April 19, 2021 students who received messages to return to school will be returning to school. It is very important that you understand only certain students who filled out the district form and received notification that they are to return on Monday April 19'th are supposed to return on Monday. There are different groups of students that are supposed to return to school on assigned days. All students returning to school will only be returning ONE DAY per week. Students must bring a mask with them and their school computers. Please make sure that school computers are charged before arriving to the school so that they may use them during the day. If you know that your child's computer does not keep the charge for a long period of time, then please have them come to school with their charger. We would also like the students to come with their own headphones.

    You can copy and paste the address in the browser to attend the google meet for your small group. 

     I will be seeing the small groups for these classes on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. 

     These are the codes for my small group. You must use the appropriate code to register for small group so that I may assist you in the process of learning English and understanding your ELA work for your general education teachers. 


    Due to the fact that students are returning to school on Monday small group times must be adjusted to give students time to get home and time to eat when they arrive home from school.

You may also call me at 973-295-8929, however, if I do not pick up the phone, I may be on the phone with another student. If this happens please text me with your issue and I will respond, or you may ask me to call you back in the text. 
    When students complete their work in google classroom they must click submit. I will be checking work on a daily basis and adding feedback. 
    Additionally any students who use Rosetta Stone at school may use it at home attached here are instructions on how you can access Rosettta Stone from the house to practice your English. This is the link so that you may use the Rosetta Stone program when you are not at school to practice your English proficiency skills. If you click to copy this link in your navigation bar when you are online, it  will give you instructions on how to set up access to Rosetta Stone from home. file:///home/chronos/u8ed7d8e6fe46ccdc619b4b734e0cf4f7ff488af9/MyFiles/Downloads/K12QuickStart.pdf
