Hello everyone, and welcome to the first day of school! I am so excited to have you in my class this year. This week will be a bit different for several reasons: 1. We are online instead of in person 2. All your assignments will be posted here and 3. We WILL NOT be using Schoology until next week. I want to teach you some other resources this week then I will teach you step by step how we will use Schoology this year beginning next Tuesday, September 8th.
For today there are several links I need you to click on.
First I have a slideshow to share with you that will tell you more about what to expect for the start of this year. I also tell you a little about myself. I even included pictures – you get to see me and my silly family.
Opening Day Slide Show – I have given access to anyone who emailed me. I am so sorry about the technical difficulty. Please email me if there are any other problems!!!
Next, I have a video of me reading my favorite first day of school book. Please listen to the book and enjoy!
After you have listened to my read aloud for you, please send me a comment below telling me how you feel about the start of this school year. THIS IS HOW I WILL TAKE ATTENDANCE TODAY!! So it is REALLY important to send me your thoughts.
Finally, we have the Student Online Handbook. This is from the district. Here is the message about it:
As part of our school’s orientation for this fall, please review the Student Online Learning Handbook and complete this form to acknowledge that you have read through and discussed the handbook and expectations. Also, please list any questions you have about the start of the school year online. Your questions, as well as those from other families, will be answered on an online learning FAQ page on the DuVall School News Blog. Please fill out the form by Thursday, September 3rd.
Click on the blue words to see the handout and fill out the form – this is you and your parent’s homework for today. (It’s the one day you can tell your parents that they have homework).
Look here tomorrow for your assignments for Tuesday. I will have a fun activity and you won’t want to miss it. I will also be calling all the families on Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure you have signed up for a time to talk.
Welcome Back Phone Call with Mrs. Moon
I will be having a ZOOM meeting with all of you on Wednesday and Thursday this week. I will be sending the link for those meetings later in the week. Thursday will also be the day to come up to school and pick up your materials that you will need from me to start the school year. I look forward to meeting you in person (with a mask) on Thursday from 9-10 am.
This is a short week with school from Monday – Thursday and all these are half days. This is what we are calling a “soft start” to the year. On Tuesday, September 8th we will begin our full day schedule and will begin to use Schoology – I will teach you how to use it before then. Let’s have a great start to a wonderful year of learning together!
