Ms. Maria Versella

 Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the Extended Learning Resource Page! 

It is hard to believe that we are already in November. Despite not being together, our students are rising to meet the challenges of virtual learning.  In a few weeks, some students will be coming to Park Avenue School. I am looking forward to this new phase and will continue to do my best for all of my students. Be well.

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

I will be available daily to answer any questions you may have.  My virtual Office Hours are as follows: 

Monday – Friday: 1:00PM – 3:00PM

Whenever, I host a Google Meet during office hours, the meeting link will be posted in students' ELA teachers' classrooms

Should you have any questions about assignments, you can contact me through the following channels:

Email:  and/or Class Dojo accounts of the teachers I work with

Below are the links and codes to the Google Classrooms of the teachers I work with.
