Hello!  I miss you all and I hope we will be back together again soon.  I’d like to have a meeting on Monday morning via Zoom.  This will give us a chance to say hello and catch up and it will also allow me to walk you through the expectations for online learning and show you where to find your lesson and course materials. 

To join the meeting, you want to go to www.zoom.us and click ‘Join a Meeting’.  I will have two meetings, one for my 2nd period students and another for my 3rd and 4th period students.  The times and meeting codes for each are listed below.  Once you type in the meeting code, you will be prompted to include the password.  If you have any issues, please let me know via e-mail or remind. I look forward to seeing your faces Monday morning!
