After reading some of your Wellness Check-Ins, talking with some students and parents, and reflecting on everything, I am making two major changes to your assignments & due dates. I am changing the requirements for Reading Plus to just ONE lesson per week. I am changing the due date to TASK 5 to AFTER Spring Break. The only two things that need to completed this week is ONE Reading Plus Lesson and Task 4 in your Class Notebook.
Please make sure you are putting your work in the Class Notebook OneNote at the top and not anywhere else. When you finish Task 4, if would like to work ahead, please do so. I am making these changes to alleviate stress and the work load. I know that you are receiving an unprecedented amount of work at this time from ALL teachers. I can only control what I am assigning you for my class. Hopefully by removing some assignments and adding additional time to complete tasks you are able to get your work done without unnecessary stress and are able to complete it with high quality work instead of rushed, incomplete work.
In addition, the 7th grade Reading Department has put together a no-tech paper packet for any student that does not have adequate technology/internet access. If you are in need of one of these paper packets, I need to know ASAP. Please reach me at 678-561-6011.
I want all of you to know I really do miss you and hope that you know I am here to support you in any way I can. I tremendously miss each and every one of you!
