Homework will be listed through ParentVue/StudentVue and Google Classroom to show assignment information. Homework is also always listed in my room on the Homework Board so students should be keeping track of their assignments as well.
Class information/resources will be posted on Google Classroom. This is where you will find information/practice sites to reinforce what is taught in class. Each block has its own individualized Google Classroom code so please let me know if you have a schedule change.
Communication between students, teachers, and parents is important. I will be using the email information enterd into ParentVue/provided by the school. If you have an concerns regarding this or are not receiving my emails, please send me an e-mail at the address below and include your name, student’s name, and/or the block they have U.S. History. I will do my best to send the dates/topics of upcoming summative assessments.
Please email Mrs. McKenica with any questions!
