***Update April 17, 2020***
Review activities and learning resources are being compiled onto a choice board and emailed by Dr. Jacks at the beginning of the week.  Additional review/activity options can be found on our Blue Team Page.  My office hours are on Wednesdays from 12:00 - 1:00pm but I will continue to respond to emails and messages throughout the week.  Keep hanging in there everyone!

***Update March 20, 2020***
I hope everyone is adjusting to this new social distancing lifestyle, doing well, and staying healthy.  I sure miss my students and our normal routines!  When we left school last week we were part way through our science unit on sound and our geography unit on the southwest region.  I'm not exactly sure how teaching and learning is going to look moving forward but I know we will figure it all out together.  Mrs. Young, Mrs. Stovall, and I have decided to keep all of our instructional information and resources together on the Blue Team page so it is all in one place for you.  Please check there for current information on the Science and Social Studies tabs.  I hope we will be together in person again soon but until then, stay healthy!
