May 17, 2020 This is our last week of remote learning activities on Seesaw. Thursday, May 21st will be the last day that activities are assigned. A progress report for this trimester will be included in your child's report card.  I will be available for ZOOM meetings through May 25th if your child needs help, or just wants to say hello.

Apr 27, 2020 Dear Parents, I am continuing to put assignments for math, reading and writing groups on Seesaw. https://web.seesaw.me/ I am also able to see your child's on assignments and work on Seesaw/Google Classroom with their homeroom teachers. Please, if your child needs any one-on-one instruction, please contact me at my email address, or text me via my Google Voice number.

Apr 20, 2020 I have begun to schedule ZOOM video meetings with students. Parents so far have asked for a weekly meeting with their child to keep us connected beyond Seesaw.  If you would like your child to check in with me on ZOOM, don't hesitate to contact me and ask. I will be more than happy to schedule a meeting on the same day/time each week for them. Meetings can be to help them with any problems they are having with work from their homeroom teacher, my work on Seesaw, or just to say hello.

Apr 17, 2020 Friday, April 17, 2020   Dear Parents, As we end our first week of remote learning, I know we’ve gotten off to a slow start. Some of you are getting used to your children’s devices and/or getting WiFi set up in your household. Out of 14 students I see in resource groups, I’ve only seen about half logging on to Seesaw. Out of those 6 students, only a couple are completing the work appropriately. So, we have a ways to go. We will get there though. READ MORE

Apr 3, 2020 Dear Parents and Students, I will be clearing all assignments on Seesaw except a video I want students to watch. Next week is Spring Break, so I will not be posting assignments.  Please have your children view the video I have in the ACTIVITIES (light bulb) section, and check it again on Tuesday, April 14th. HAVE A GREAT SPRING BREAK!

Apr 2, 2020 Dear Parents, After our tech rollout yesterday, all of the students I am serving should have a laptop or tablet capable of doing remote learning. I wanted to share with you what to expect in the coming future. For today and tomorrow, your child can get assignments from their homeroom teacher by going to their district Web page. For resource group work, they can log in to Seesaw using the code I sent last week. READ MORE

Mar 30, 2020 Dear Parents, As we begin our third week of e-learning, we are getting more of an idea of what your child's program will look like. I have contacted all of you and are aware of your child's technology needs. Remember that this Wednesday, April 1st you will be able to "drive-thru" Butler between 9-11 am to pick up your child's classroom laptop. No child should be doing assignments on a phone.  As it stands now, your child's homeroom teacher (Mrs. READ MORE
