Class Website

Please be sure to take some time to explore our CLASS WEBSITE. We use this site as a learning hub within our classroom but I also encouraged the students to spend some time exploring it at home.

Our website is a great place to find information about what's coming up, to get a sneak peak into our current curriculum focuses, to link to other tools that we are using as a class such at Tools2Go or Seesaw or to simply visit other fun and interesting learning links. One very important feature of our website is the CLASS CALENDAR. This is a great resources to help you stay on top of what's due and what's coming up.
