    Dear Parents and Students,

    Welcome to the Extended Learning Resource Page.  This page was created to provide students working from home with access to assignments, links, assessments, and practice resources.  Schools will be completely virtual from September 8 – November 25.  Additional information and daily updates can be found on the district’s COVID-19 Resource Page found at https://www.orange.k12.nj.us/domain/3058.

     I am looking forward to this school year and my hope is not just to instill love of Mathematics, but to inspire each and everyone to become an enthusiastic learner. I am excited to be a part of your child academic learning experience as well as social emotional support.
