Our last online learning day will be Friday, May 29th. I do not know the timeline for returning computers yet. Keep an eye on your email for information. We will be having a talent show for our last Webex meeting. Anyone may participate that wishes to do so. You may still join our video meeting if you decide you don't want to share your talent. I look forward to seeing what everyone will be showcasing. I plan on bringing my talent as well.

Tuesday, April 21st
I have decided to only add content to this page. I do not have enough students logging in to Microsoft Teams to use that platform. This is much easier for me and after some conversations with students and parents, I have decided at this time to only use my webpage. Please check here daily for any messages and be sure to check the assignment tab.
I will be including some fun activities and assignments for students to complete.
1. Log in to i-Ready daily, work on math and reading for 15 minutes.
2. Work on Xtra Math every day
3. Check out Freckle (you'll find it on the website tab) for added assignments
Office hours are still the same. 9:30 - 10:30 daily (except this Thursday 11:00-12:00)
Dear Families and Students,
I am so sad and very disappointed that we will not be able to return to school this school year. I know that these are very challenging and stressful times for everyone. I don't want to create more stress. If your student has access to a computer and the Internet, there is a world of learning out there for them! Some of the learning sites that students have used all school year are linked on this website. I have also included a couple of other websites to use.
I am available to help students through any challenges they face. Email is the best form of communication as I will be checking it frequently throughout the day. Below I've set up a suggested schedule for you to work on until the district has Microsoft Teams in place.
Monday through Friday Daily Work
Practice math facts
Read daily for 20 - 30 minutes Check my website page for Epic (free online books to read)
Take an AR test
I-Ready Math 15 minutes daily
I-Ready Reading 15 minutes daily
Start keeping a daily journal
Please don't worry about getting everything done all at once. Do try to set up a daily routine. Children often are able to focus best in the morning, but make it work for your family especially if you are having to share computers. Please remember to take breaks to play, eat, and relax.
My office hours are from 9:30 - 10:30 daily.
Please check the Carmen Dragon Facebook page for lessons from Mrs. Pesmark (P.E.) and Mr. Beck (computers)
