Welcome, students and families!
If you or your child should need assistance with assigned work or accessing the necessary sites, please reach out! You can email me, message me on Remind, or contact me through Teams. I will get back to you as soon as possible. I will have office hours (to ensure a quick response) Monday through Friday from 10am-12pm and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-6pm through Monday May 25th. Please note that all work for the term must be turned in to me by noon on May 25th.
Please check back here often for updates. Students should be checking their school email daily, through Office365.
Below is the Week at a Glance for this week, followed by a link to the assignments for last week. This information is also included with each of the week's assignments in Teams. I don't necessarily expect work to be completed daily, but assignments should be completed in the order in which they're listed.
Week at a Glance: Week of 5/18/20

All online resources needed for this week will be found in Microsoft Teams (more on that follows).
Your child's ability to access ClassLink will be essential to our learning process. ClassLink is the online suite of apps and websites that our students use at school. This is where you'll find Office365, which has Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, etc. Their login is their student ID number @edu.leonschools.net (example: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Another very important program found in Office365 is Teams. This is where files and assignments will be uploaded, so students can continue learning this school year. Teams contains all the information, links, and assignments they will need to complete their lessons for the week.
Once in Teams, students will be able to see all their classes (Teams). They will see one Team for my subjects and one for Mrs. Shaffer's. They may also see Teams for their special areas. Click on a Team to access the files and assignments for that class. Once you're there, you should see different tabs. The Posts option allows students to post to the whole class. (If they want to chat with me privately, that option is available at the top of the page.) I have created an "assignment" in the Assignments tab for each day, to ensure all students can access the files. Each assignment includes the Week at a Glance and any PowerPoints or other resources needed to complete the assignments for the week. Please note: each day has an "Assignment," but it does not matter how you get your answers to me. If you're able to submit them via Teams, great! If not, you can write your answers and take a picture of them or type them up and email them to me.
On a mobile device? No problem! ClassLink has an app that can be downloaded, and Office365 and Outlook can be accessed through there for any students who are using mobile devices. They just need to enter their email address (email@example.com and password).
Thanks to all of you for working with me as we work out the kinks of access issues and program quirks. It will get easier! This is a challenging time for all of us but, together, we'll make it through.
