    If anyone in periods 1 or 3 did not bring their Ulysses book home, please let me know and we'll find a solution.  Also, as you are brainstorming, and writing a rough draft and editing, please work on this process on paper, or if you brought home your composition book you can work on your rough draft there.  This is the way we've been working on our writing in class and I'd like you to continue in this way before you start the writing in a Google document.

    Thank you! :)

    Also - Just a reminder - your History text can be found on line by going to Clever and then clicking on TCI.

    Language Arts students - your Language Arts textbook can be found online under my HRW

    Hello again students,

         I hope you have had a good week and you are all healthy and safe.  I am going to start this week by posting my lessons under the Homework.  Please remain patient with me while we work out the Distant Learning process.  I hope you enjoy the projects that I have created for you to begin while we start this process.

         These lessons will be enrichment for both Language Arts and History.  Students that only have me for History will join Google classroom through either period 1 or 3.  If you have me for period 2, join Google classroom through period 1.  If you are a student in period 4, join Google classroom through period 3.

         Please check the updates on my webpage and the Homework page for now.  Beginning next week, if you need the class code, please email me at dbridges@pleasantvalleysd.org.  You may need to use your parent/guardian access to email me.

         I will have office hours on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday through email, from 11:00 - 11:30, however, you are not limited to those office hours as I will answer your email as soon as possible. You can also share a question on a Google doc with me.  Several of you have shared the enrichment that you have completed and I've been able to comment on your work, and some of you have written to me on a Google doc, and I've really enjoyed hearing from you.  I still miss each one of you, and the ability to see you on a daily basis.

         The work that is assigned for distant learning will be evaluated with comments on your Google document.  I am looking forward to seeing the results of the projects that will be assigned beginning this week.

    Take care,

    Mrs. Bridges

    Dear Students,

        I have missed each and every one of you so much!  I hope you are all using some of your time to read a good book, enjoy your family time, and enjoy the fresh air while practicing social distancing.  This is new territory for everyone, but we will travel through this experience together and once again return to a normal life.  I have realized how much each of you are a part of my life and look forward to seeing your smiling faces again.  

       The District is working with the teachers and training us on the computers through written lessons on how to push out more enrichment to you.  We will be spending each day this week reviewing this online training and practicing online to provide more enrichment and lessons for you in the weeks to follow.  We don't want you to stress as these lessons will be created for the joy of learning and to enrich your lives. 

       The teachers have been busy calling one another as we are trying to make this new teaching program happen, and we are being trained to teach in a new way.  We have had a MOUNTAIN of questions for one another!

       Please continue to read The Adventures of Ulysses, so you are keeping up with your outside reading.  I'm sure many of you have completed it by now, and it will be fun to discuss this book.  Also, as you read any book, take some time to write down what happened in each chapter.  Ask yourself what the author's lesson in each chapter is, and if the main character or characters change throughout the book.  

    Take care,

    Mrs. Bridges
