• Dear Parents/Guardians, and Students of 5D:

    Hello and Welcome to my Fifth Grade Class!

    I had the pleasure of meeting most of you this Thursday, September 3, 2020, when you arrived to pick up your 5th Grade materials and laptop device.  Thank you for coming to get your materials and allowing me to meet you, and also have brief chat! :)

    If you were unable to pick up your materials and device today, you may come to McGalliard Elementary School tomorrow, Friday, September 4th, between the hours of 10:00 AM-12:00 PM.  If this does not work for you, please contact the school by either phone or email.  ALL STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE THEIR MATERIALS AND THEIR DEVICE BY THE OFFICIAL FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL-TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2020.

    We will be engaged in a regular academic day of activities-VIRTUALLY/REMOTELY.  I will also be taking attendance. :)  Morning Meeting will begin at 8:55 AM. :)  Schedule will be posted in our Google Classroom for all students.

    Below you will find the link to our Google Meet for our Virtual Meet and Greet on Friday, September 4, 2020.  The Virtual Meet starts at 3:00 pm and ends at 4:00 pm.  Please wear the nametag that I clipped into your RED folder provided at pick up today.  This will help me to put names with faces during our Meet & Greet :).   Students and Parents may "pop in" for a short chat at any time during that hour.  Just click on the link to join the Virtual Meet and Greet.



    This Google Meet link is the link that our class will use all year during Remote and Hybrid Learning Schedules.

    The link is always displayed in the upper left - hand  corner of my Google Classroom Page, so that students can join our Google Meets with ease.

    I will be posting the schedule for the first day of school, Tuesday, September 8, 2020 in our Google Classroom later today/tomorrow.  All students are expected to log on by 8:55 AM as per Mrs. Morale's Robocall Announcement she placed to families today.

    Reminder to ALL STUDENTS!  Please log into your Google Classroom accounts in order to access any information and assignments I have posted.  I invited all students to my Google Classroom page, so please make sure you check your account/Google Classroom.  So far I only see that 5 students have logged in/accepted invitation.

    Thank you for being a part of our Fifth Grade Class this year!  I can't wait to see everyone "POP IN" tomorrow between the hours of 3:00 and 4:00 pm!

    Enjoy the rest of your evening! :)
