    Update Monday 4/6
    Reminder - we only have work for Monday and Tuesday this week.  It is listed by date on the left hand side on my website.  As always, any questions, please reach out.  Work will be due this week by Wednesday at 4PM.  If you would need more time, please email.  Also, there is NO science or SS assigned this week ONLY math and ELA.
    I am missing our normal routine as I am sure you all are, but having time with my family to walk, play games, and do "family" things has been filling my heart.  
    I hope each and every one of you are staying safe and remembering to wash your hands :).  I know your adults at home are taking good care of you .  That is what adults do.
    Free Tutoring - Math
    I just noticed that on Mcknight's main web page that high school students are offering virtual 1-1 tutoring in math and science for grades 4-8.  Please follow the link to sign up if you are itnerested.  The link can be found by clicking on the main page - Elementary Remote Learning Guidlines.  Scroll down to the last paragraph.
     Update Monday 3/30
    Hello!  I miss you all terribly.  Stay safe and at home - that is your #1 job!
    As I continue to say, my goal is to enirch and reinforce the skills the students already have in their repitoire.  My assignmnets will always be loaded on the tab to the left - listed by date and subject area.
    I am trying to give parents ( and students) the flexibility to complete the required work on their schedule.  Any work listed, will always be due Friday by 4PM.  It is only neccssary to send pictures or other things if that is listed on the directions of the assignments as I can see MUCH of the student's progress remotely.  Please make sure they are hitting submit or done in google classroom when they view a video though.
    The work that was assigned for this week was started last Wednesday after the FID menus.
    I am available by email all day so please reach out if you have any questions.
    This is a trying time for everyone especially our kiddos.  Please go the Mrs. Biro's website for resources to help you and your children through this time.  I know my own daughter has had some ups and downs through this as well as I.  Next week, some of the kids assignments will be focused on stress reduction and perseverance through this tough time.
    Update Wednesday 3/25
    1. Please make sure your child is "checking in" to school using the link through Tiger ID each and every day.  Attendance starts to count today (3/25.)
    2. I will be able to remotely access and check all student progress through google classroom, Study Island, Quizizz, etc....at this time the district directive is for material to be pertinent but ungraded.  This may change, but for now I am looking for effort not perfection.  The students do NOT have to email work unless it is specified.  Most data collection will come through my remote monitoring.
    3. I will post all work for the week on the tabs to the left marked with the weeks dates.  Remember, you must go to your math teacher's website not mine for their work.  Whatever teacher teaches you that subject, you must go to their assignments.
    4. Work will be given at the beginning of the week, but it is not due until the end of the week (Friday at 4PM).  The district guidline is even calendar days - ELA and SS and odd calendar days Math and Science.  If your child wants to complete the weeks work in a day, that is fine.  It just must be completed by Friday at 4PM.  
    5.  Due to this being a short week, I have assigned this weeks and next weeks work.
    6. Most importanly, we are in this together.  It will be strange and there will be bumps, but we can do it.  I know that I have worked all year to teach 5C to be independent learners and to love learning on their own not just because I told them to do it.  I 100% feel the students in 5C are in the best position possible for remote learning to work.
    Remote Learning Update:
    Please use the links on the left for daily announcements and assignments.  For Monday 3/23 and Tuesday 3/24, students are only required to use the FID ( flexible instruction day) menu. 
    Please make sure you have signed up for my Remind Ap updates and communication.  If you have not, please email me so that I can send directions. 
    This is a learning process for all of us, my goal is to educate your child the best I can without being in front of them.  It will be different for sure, but I am sure it will be successful.  Please be patient with me as I will be with you and the kids as we adjust to this new process.
    I will be posting assignments for the rest of the week by noon Monday 3/23.  I will do my very best to balance the work load to educate without overwheleming you or your students at home.  The district has designed a  schedule alternating between ELA, Math, and content each day.  
    For the remaining weeks, I will list all work and requirements by Monday at 8AM.  This work will need completed by Friday at 3:30PM
    I have sent directions through the Remind Ap.  You can also have yoru child "sign-in" each day through a link in Tiger ID.  It is very important that your child does this each day.  I am still trying to get a clarification of what time this needs done by - but check back later and I will post.  Any issue, use tab at left to get in touch with NA help desk.
    Work for Wednesday3/25 - Friday 3/27
    Please check tab to left later today.  I am getting some clarification on technology access at home for lessons.  Thank you for understanding.
    General Information:
    I have been teaching over 25  wonderful years.  I am lucky enough to do what I love.  Not only am I a teacher in this district, but I live in the school district too.  I believe in the education here at North Allegheny not only as a professional, but as a parent too! I have two children who have graduated from NA and one currently at NASH.
