Note to Parents and Students Regarding School Closure and Assignments
As you know, our school is closed until Monday, April 6th, but we will still be providing curriculum for students to complete during the time we are not in school. For Language Arts, we will be primarily working in our Study Sync online textbook that can be accessed in your school portal at (portal.pvpusd.net).
The work that you will be given will be graded and added to your Trimester 3 grade, so please be sure to keep up with the assignments.
The work for Language Arts will be begin being posted on Edlio before the work start date: Monday, 3/16/20. However, if you would like something to do before then, please remember to continue reading a fictional Newbery Award or Honor book (gold or silver medal) of 100 pages or more for our book report that is still scheduled to be assigned on April 16th.
Also, please be sure to check Edlio each day to see if there are any additions or updates. Here is the link to my page:
If you need to contact me to ask any questions regarding the work, please email me at any time. My email address is [email protected]. I will be checking my email regularly during school hours (Monday-Friday).
