Spring 2020 Extended Time Off Activities

Office Hours - As always, communication between parents, students, and teachers is essential.  Though our "classroom" has been adjusted, my commitment to being there for your child and you has not.  Please feel free to reach out M-F from 10-10:40 AM if you need assistance from me.  I will continue to respond and assist outside of those times as I am available.  Please do not hesitate to email or send a message through Remind, and I will do my best to provide a speedy response. 

Welcome!  Thanks for stopping by!  Below you will find announcements and activities.  Be sure to check out Mr. Hildebrand's page, Mrs. Mosher's page, and the Specials Teachers' pages for other exciting activities in science, social studies, math, technology, and the arts.
