Ms. Gill


It was a pleasure getting to connect with families and getting to hear the students voices last week. This week I will be posting a daily routine for the students to follow each day. I would recommend getting your child to check the website each morning after 8:30am for that days routine. Once again this is a week where many educators will be prepping daily schedules and getting ready for online learning. Thank you to all the families that are being patient and supportive while I get ready for the next phase. Some things to look forward to this week are:

  • Mrs. Gill's office hours will be from 8:30am - 2:30pm. Emails received after 2:30pm will be answered the following day. I am working from home, so if you call the school they can send me an email to contact you via phone. 
  • I will have a resource page compiled together and posted on this homework page this week (working really hard to add resources that are relevant to the students grade levels and skills they should be practicing)
  • I have already attached an example daily routine below
  • Monday, April 6, 2020 I will have our class’s “Team” activated on Office 365 teams, so please make sure your child is able to log on. Reminder to not have your child do any of the assignments on Office 365 teams yet.
  • Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at 11:15am- 11:45 is the designated time for parents to come pick up some supplies that I am sending home for the students to work on. You will be picking up their handwriting book, jumpmath book, math journal, writer’s notebook, and pencil case. If this day or time does not work with you then we recommend that you phone or email the school office to schedule an alternate date or time.
  • Wednesday, April 8, 2020 and Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 12:00pm we will have our class meeting. Your child is required to log into one meeting out of the two.

Please check back on this homework page regularly!
