Wednesday, March 18 – Day 3

Good Morning!

Oh yah – I tried a video recording!  Enjoy this WELCOME VIDEO!

Today is day 3 of the closure and your last day of “freedom.”  Starting tomorrow, teachers will be posting lessons and starting to interact with you online.  There are several platforms for this; we will be using Schoology.   All will be entered through Clever.com though.  Below, you will see a link to an overview of what to expect over the next week and a half.  Below that, you will see the instructions for Schoology Login.  YOU ALL NEED TO GET SIGNED UP THEN COMPLETE THE QUIZ (A FUN ONE) BEFORE THURSDAY AT MIDNIGHT.
