Missed class? Questions?

If you missed class or have questions about an assignment, please email both of us at:

Ms. Abella, jabella@egsd.net

Mrs. Steever, msteever@egsd.net

Remember 50% of your grade is your progress reading during class. Time given during class to read should be spent reading and not on your phone or talking to classmates.  If you have missed class, you must read 40 minutes on your own time to make up for the missed reading time during class. Log in your time and page numbers read in your reading journal.

Distance Learning Plans for Our Class

By now, you and your parents should have received our email providing the Distance Learning overview for our class. If it bypassed your inbox, the letter is attached below. The schedule for the week is:

  • Monday- E Day: 5/6/SDL/7/1
  • Tuesday- F Day: 2/3/4/5/6
  • Wednesday- A Day: 1/2/3/4/5
  • Thursday- B Day: 6/7/Adv/1/2
  • Friday- C Day: 3/4/5/6/7

We are required to take attendance so it’s important that you check Google Classroom each time our class is scheduled to meet (this week Monday, Wednesday and Thursday) and complete the posted classroom activities.

We are counting on you to continue making progress in reading your book. If you don’t have your book at home to read or have finished your current book, please reach out to us ASAP. We have a number of options we can provide.

We are only an email away so reach out with any questions or concerns you may have.

Important: Please reserve Tuesday, March 31 from 1:45 - 2:30 p.m. for our class to conduct a Google Hangout.
