Miss P. Simmons
Hello! Welcome to what promises to be the best year yet at Hornsby 4-8!
I am Ms. Simmons, I have the pleasure of teaching 8th grade Exceptional Learner/ Learning Strategies. Students will be challenged to meet all academic and social goals as well as use what will prove to be benefical life skills.
Lets have a GREAT 2019-2020!!
In light of all of the swift changes we have had to make because of the COVID-19 epidemic I ask that you please check my webpage weekly. I will be adding assignments for my students on a weekly basis in a effort to have them work as closely as possible to our system that had already been established.
On Tuesdays, students should add to their Transition Plans with the assignments from the website.
On Wednesdays, students should devote 25-30 to each of our main Computer based assignment platforms I-Ready, Reading Plus, and Common Lit (Common Lit. assignments were assigned prior to the break based on each students individual reading levels)
Reading Plus should not only be utilized on Wednesday, set aside time everyday to complete assignments.
Weekly phone check-ins will begin on Tuesday March 24, I will call students individually to address goals and individual needs. Services not covered through phone conference will be addressed via Google Classroom and FaceTime.
Please feel free to email any questions
Most of all, please be safe
