• Hello, students! Welcome to Virtual Learning. From now until we return to school, I will be posting assignments for you to work on, which you can to access through Google Classroom.

     

    GO TO GOOGLE CLASSROOM PAGE AND CLICK "CLASSWORK." THERE IS A SECTION FOR VIRTUAL LEARNING. IT WILL BE UPDATED EACH WEEK. YOU SHOULD CLICK ON THE AGENDA (IT WILL SHOW DAY 1 AND DAY 2) AND ACCESS THE ASSIGNMENTS BELOW THE AGENDA.

    I will be available to meet live during office hours through Zoom. The Zoom meeting details will be posted on Google Classroom the morning of the session. The office hours will be as follows:

     

    Mondays 2:00-2:30 (ELA 8 periods 1,2)

    Wednesdays 2:00-2:30 (ELA 8 periods 4)

    Thursdays from 2:00-2:30 (ELA Honors periods 5,6)

     

    Setting the office hours up by period will allow me to give more individualized attention the classes. Should any questions come up outside of office hours, please feel free to email me any time at dlocken@pleasantvalleysd.org

     

    I am looking forward to continuing our learning experience virtually.

     

    Mr. Locken
