Happy Friday Computer Lab Students and Families!
I hope this bonus week of spring break has been full of rest and relaxation for you! I have been busy prepping for our new online learning and working with the other 6th grade and elective teachers to have a reasonable schedule of when we will get to “see” you online! Next week is a time for students to focus on their core academics (ELA, math, science and social studies) as well as fine-tune this new schedule. I will begin looking for work in Gmetrix, Learning.com and Edutyping the week of 4/6 (Students: if you have time in your day and your other studies are completed, feel free to jump in next week!). Students: Remember that you have an Ivy Hawn planner, which is an amazing way for you to schedule your day and ensure you are on top of your studies. If you lost or left your planner at school, there are a million online resources to help with planning learning at home. Let me know if you need help finding one!
I will send a link next week for our first meeting (planning on 4/7 at 9:00 AM, but that may change pending how the core classes go next week). For now, I know many of the teachers are planning to use Zoom for virtual classes. If you are not familiar with Zoom, please watch this video for a little tutorial. Zoom is a free app that will need to be loaded onto the device you will be using for learning.
Parents/Guardians: If your family does not normally have Wi-Fi at home, most (if not all) carriers are providing free service to homes with students who are learning from home. Please contact the carrier in your area for more details.
Sixth Grade, keep writing those gratitudes and find ways to enjoy the unique gift of time that you have now at home. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. I wish you all an amazing weekend! Stay safe and healthy!
Love, Ms. Morris

In between your lessons, remember to get up and move!
