I am so excited to get to see you guys! It has been way too long! 14 days to be exact (if you are counting school days only).
We have decided that Connections classes will meet with you guys on Fridays. I have decided to use ZOOM. You can either download the app on your phone or go to the webpage zoom.com.
Create your account using your school email and password. I will have to send a room code and password to each TEAMS account post a few minutes before the meeting. Please log in at your grade level time. I am aware that some teachers have meetings at the same time. You can pop in and out as you need to to ask your questions and get your answers! So excited to see you!
First of all, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to all of you that have tried (and most succeeded) in completing the assignments! Once you get the hang of it, it is not that difficult. Editing the document seemed to be the most difficult. Once you guys understood how to do that, it was awesome! Teams is also new to me so I am growing with all of you.
This week I am introducing a new platform to you - EVERFI. I had spoken about it in class and will be opening up the platform to you by Monday. It will be similar to iReady; moving through modules at your own pace and completing a quiz-type aactivity at the end. I think it looks great! I will be doing the modules as a sample studentbefore I sent them out to you. Please pace yourself! DO NOT try to do this all in one day...it will take longer than that!
Keep watching my Distance Learning tab for assignments! If you have questions, EMAIL ME!!! Do not wait until the day the assignment is due to tell me you are having problems...let me know asap! I will respond back quickly. I check emails multiple times a day and usually respond back within a few hours. Weekends may be different....
Keep working! Stay healthy! See you in a month!
A staff member from Belair K8 sent this to the faculty to help us all realize that we are all in this together. No one is alone in this new transition.....not teachers, not parents, not students. This is new to us all. By allowing us to learn together, we can do this. Through hiccups and stumbles, we will rise above it.
Please enjoy the attached article.OTHER helpful articles for parents:Celebrities reading popular children's books can be found here:Tips for guarding mental health during this time can be found here:
For the next few weeks, we will be working via distant learning/online learning/ electronic learning. My assignments will be due BY Friday of each week. Please do them each week; they will ALL be graded.
Some assignments will be more in depth; whereas, others might only have you watch a video and give input. We are all learning how to work this way so please have patience and email me if you have ANY quetions about assignments.
ALL assignments will be posted in MICROSOFT TEAMS. (If you log into Microsoft as if you were checking email, look for hte Purple TEAMS tab. Click it and go to your class period, grade level Teams Account that I have set up for each class period.) You will be able to easily find all assignments. You can either print out the assignments and complete them, or write the answers on paper; either way is fine. Once you have done that, take a picture of it and send it to me via email. I will grade themand send back a grade for your assignment back to the email you used to send it to me.
I know over the next few weeks we all will be feeling stress for many different reasons. Please take time to decompress and relax. We all will get through this and will be stronger for it. Most of all, WASH YOUR HANDS AND KEEP THEM OFF YOUR FACES!!!
Check your email at least 2x a day and check Teams accounts at least 1x a day. All assignmetns are due by Friday of each week.
Take care of each other and I will see you soon. Peace, health and happiness to all!

Parents: Please encourage your scholars to keep working hard and to turn in assignments on time. Every grade counts towards their average and each grade makes an impact on their average. If you have any concerns with grades in Infinite Campus, please email email me ASAP so that we can find answers to your questions. My email is: email@example.com.
Students in PE: You get a participation grade daily. Standing around holding equipment does not mean you have participated; you have only kept others from participating. You must participate the entire time you are in the gym (unless you are waiting the 5 minutes to get equipment from others). Sitting and watching is not particpating. PE is an interactive class; to improve, you must participate!
Students in Personal Fitness: You are doing great! Learning about bones and muscles is not easy, but you are doing well. Our Fitness Assessments (every two weeks) will start to be easier after the third assessment. Your muscles are getting used to the exercises and you will see an increase in repetitions each time we perform the assessment.
Students in Health: We are almost finished with the Choosing the Best Abstinence classes. You have hung in there and had some great discussions and questions concerning this difficult topic. I am proud that you have asked the pertinent questions and have completed your homework with parents or other trusted adults. These activities help you to understand that adults know this information as well and you can go to them to ask questions and get answers.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Day break; I truly believe we all needed some time off to recharge and get ready to finish this first semester with great energy and wonderful attitudes!
For my Personal Fitness and Physical Education lcasses, we will be completing the second round of the Presidential Fitness Challenge/FitnessGram. This consists of 6 activities that we can complete within 2 weeks (leaving 1 week for kinesthetic exploration.....yeah!)! Be ready to put forth your best and get better scores than we did on our pretest. Show me what you've got!!!
For my Health classes, we are completing our Abstinence classes and beginning to focus on presentations and group work. I LOVE this part of the class because you can show me what you know through creativity and collaboration. Group presentations will be given on designated topics. Each group is given a rubric so you know exactly what I am looking for with NO surprises. Get ready to amaze me!
Parents and students:
Please make sure you are keeping up with your most current grades by checking Infinite Campus. I input grades every week so that you always know where you stand in my class. If you ever have questions about a grade or an assignment, please do not hesitate to contact me. I return all emails within 48 hours.
I look forward to watching each child succeed in my class!
Coach Lori Wooley
Every person in every class needs a pack of notecards and a composition book.
You will use one notecard a day in my class; the composition book will stay in the room once it is brought. You will use it for daily assignments everyday.
Be prepared for class!
Being prepared increases your chance of being successful!!!
PROPER ATTIRE IS MANDATORY!
Everyone who is in my PE and Personal Fitness classes need to have proper footwear every day. Please bring tennis shoes with you each day (especially if you wear other shoes to school). Wearing inappropraite footwear can create injuries and soreness when we are participating in active exercising and other vigorous activities.
With the beautiful weather, we will be doing most of our activities outdoors! YEAH SUNSHINE!! Please dress appropraite for weather as well.
- PLEASE be aware that your students will be having interview questions they MUST complete as a homework grade! We are completing the Choosing the Best Way Abstinence program and there are 6 lessons that all end in an interview for YOU! I have told the students they can interview anyone 18 or older AND out of high school. They have 2 days to get this done. Each interview is NO MORE than 4 questions long. Please help your student out with these assignments!
