    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    During the time we are out and Learning at Home, I encourage you to have your child complete the assignments your child’s teacher has or will send. I also encourage you to utilize the free resources that have been made available.


    I will be available during school hours, if your child needs assistance with anything, via Class DoJo or email. If you have not already, you can join my Class DoJo by individual grade levels (4th & 5th).  If you are not already a member of my Class DoJo, then please email me to let me know.  My email address is hooksta@boe.richmond.k12.ga.us

    While we are out, please have your child continue to utilize iReady and the lessons on there. I also encourage you to check out the Link Library on my school website  

    Tips for Learning at home:

    -Have a schedule

    -Get up, get dressed and ready, like a regular school day

    -Include active time outside

    -Utilize the resources available to you. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need something explained or if your child needs assistance with something.


    If you had an IEP meeting or parent conference scheduled after Monday, 3-16-2020, It will be rescheduled once we return to school.


    I hope everyone stays well and safe during this time and I look forward to seeing you all again in person when we return.
