I just need a parent to confirm they received the work*****
     
    2. Monday 3/23 will be an "in-service" day for teachers.  No work will be assigned...Please check your emails Monday night or Tuesday morning for 3/24 assignments.
     
    3.  If you are using an iPad please download the app "Kahoot." In order to check for understanding, I will be administering tests through this app (reading and spelling).  When your child is finished I will be notified on how they did.  This is the plan for Tuesday remote teaching....... so please have the app downloaded by then.
