Hello Everyone, 

Welcome to our new way of learning.  We will begin our remote learning on Wednesday, April 1.  Your language arts assignments will be accessed through Google Classroom.  We will continue to work on Unit 5 - Evaluating Choices.  There will be daily assignments that you are expected to complete throughout each week.  I will post a calendar, at the beginning of each week, for your assignments on Google Classroom to help you stay on track for each week.  Your assignments may be completed each day or as it fits into your schedule.  This means you have the opportunity to work on your assignments when it is best for you and your family as long as you pay attention to due dates.  You may email me anytime during the day if you have questions about your Assessments for Learning. lori.ralph@adams12.org
