I pray this email finds you well. I hope the following login information will be helpful to you as we continue our journey through Distance Learning.
After our staff meeting this week, the Archdiocese of Denver has asked that we teach only the subjects Religion, Language Arts and Math during the remainder of our Distance Learning.
It has been decided that we will be using Google Classroom, and ConnectEd to deliver curriculum at home. **Please note, this is a change from using Seesaw. I will be adding Zoom meetings to our week, too. I will continue to post to my blog daily.

I will be scheduling a Zoom meeting for next Wednesday, April 1 at 2:30. Once I’ve scheduled the meeting, I will send you via email the URL link for you to click on to join the meeting. The meetings are certainly not mandatory and this first one might be a little crazy, but I think it will be fun for all of us to see each other again. It will be very informal and we’ll just chat about how things are going, etc. I ask for your patience with me as this is all very new territory I’m covering. Who would have ever thought we’d be meeting like this as a class!
I will still post unit spelling words just so the children can practice the words in a fun way. Feel free to test them!
