Look to the left! You will find multiple ways to keep in contact with me. Students: Please use the school-given email that is designated for you. This allows me to remain organized in response. The very best way to get in contact with me is through email. My email address is lacey.patterson@jeffco.k12.co.us and you will have a timely response.

Please note that my classroom is located in LA2.  If you need extra help, guidance, or assistance please make use of ACCESS hours. ACCESS hours are built into your schedule from 8:00-9:00 every Silver day. Where do you find me during ACCESS hours? In my classroom: LA2 

Please remember that we will be using Google Classroom. All of your resources (handouts, homework, daily instructions) will be posted in Google Classroom. Download the App for Android or iPhone now. You are still expected to manually keep track of due dates, instructions, etc..

Is there something else you need? Please, don't hesitate to ask.
