Hello students and parents!
The first day of school is right around the corner and I am sure you are all anxious to get started. No doubt about it, this year is going to be unique! Here are a few things you can do to get started:
Please join our class Remind message service. This is going to be especially important for students, as this will be the only way to communicate with me if your WiFi goes out!
Go to www.remind.com
or to the Remind app on your phone and use the correct code below. Students: please use your WUHSD account to join. Parents: please make it clear who your child is. Consider adding their name in parenthesis after your name.
Period 1: @p1e2h2020
Period 3: @p3e2h2020
Period 5: @p5e2fma20
Did you go to Verification Week last week? If you did, you were able to get your blue literature textbook and a copy of Macbeth (for Honors classes only). Hopefully, you were also able to borrow the tech you need to make online learning possible. Please remember, you will need a device with a working camera and microphone, but a phone will not suffice. A desktop or laptop computer is ideal. If you still need to obtain books or tech, please contact the Guidance Office at (562) 698-8121 ext. 6030.
In terms of school supplies other than technology and your books, consider also obtaining a blank notebook. Either a composition book or spiral notebook would be fine. This is not required, but you will have the opportunity to complete notes and some assignments by hand. If you prefer to write instead of type everything, this option would be good for you. Also, consider finding a book to read for independent reading. I will be able to provide some online books in PDF format, but a real book would be ideal if you have one or can get one. This book is meant to be for pleasure reading, so choose what you like!
Students, you will automatically be added to our class Google Classroom on or before Tuesday, Aug. 11. Please check it out before the first day, if you can. Zoom information will be posted there on Tuesday.
Finally, I will be posting a weekly class agenda. It will be uploaded to Google Classroom and Remind every week so everyone has a chance to look at it and see what we're doing.
Students, I look forward to meeting you all on Wednesday! If you need to contact me before then, email is best, but you can also text me via Remind.
