Virtual Learning Resources Until June 2020

Students! I will be posting lots of resources in your team Google Classrooms.  While we are unable to get books from our school library at this time, we have a whole new array of places (until June 2020) where you can read  or listen to books online.   These are some very exciting resources.  Check them out! Make sure to email smills@cpsed.net and let me know what you are reading. #PVMSREADS
