• Week of 4/27

    Office hours: Tuesday, 2:00-3:00 p.m.


    Complete the following reassessment activities from the week of 4/13. Reassessment is optional for anyone with a passing score on an assessment. You can view your scores on these assessments in Progressbook.

    1. Teams hello post: Follow the directions in the video below to find our class Teams page. Post a greeting on the channel called "Say Hello." If you cannot get to Teams online, some students have been able to use it by choosing "download the app" instead of accessing the online version. If you can't do this either, then please send me an email letting me know you are unable to access Teams from your devices.

The doc below shows how to find the articles on Teams.
