Welcome to Mrs. Hoerner's website!

Dear Parents and Students,

Happy Mother's Day to all of our moms! It was great celebrating mass with so many of you on Tuesday! The students who were in class on Friday have created a Google Slide for you. If they were at the track meet, they would not have had the time to do it. I hope they remember to share them with you. 

This week we have MAP Testing Monday through Wednesday. It will be in the morning, so please have your student eat a good breakfast and get a good night's sleep. 

We are completing the vocabulary book, and Think Tac Toe will be due this Friday. There is no test this week. The final open-book test will be next Wednesday. 

Please keep an eye out for the News-Gazette's Design-an-Ad. We have a few winners, and I think it is coming out this Wednesday. 

I have two children graduating this week. My daughter Paige will graduate from the U of I, and my son, Will, graduates from STM. Because of these events, I will be gone on Friday to be with them. Congratulations to any of your children graduating this year too!

Have a blessed Mother's Day!


Mrs. Hoerner

Complete a morning check in each day on Google classroom. This will be posted by 8AM and needs to be completed by 8:30AM. Students must be present for every class in order to be counted present for the day. 

Virtual Class Guidelines

  1. Be on time for your zoom meetings with all required supplies for each specific class (textbooks, novels, notebooks, writing utensil, assignment notebook). 

  2. Your video must remain on during instructional time with your face in view. 

  3. Choose a work space that will help you to be successful. Find a quiet learning place, or consider using headphones. 

  4. Make sure your Zoom name is a name that can be recognized (your first and last name, or an adult in your house). 

  5. No virtual backgrounds during our class zooms. This will help to eliminate distractions during our instructional time. 

Teacher Emails

It is important that the student is the first in line to communicate with teachers, and adults can follow up if necessary. This can be through their St. Matthew email, or through Google Classroom. Students will be receiving a lesson in school on how to email a teacher.

 Remember to check Google Classroom for other classroom assignments

Zoom The way to connect on Zoom is through the URL provided by the teacher. Once you click this link, it will take you to the Zoom meeting. The bottom of the screen will provide tools for the meeting. The mute/unmute button decides if people can hear you or not. Students will most likely remain muted unless the teacher asks them to unmute. Students will also see a Stop Video/Start Video button. Please note you can join a Zoom meeting with audio only, if the camera is not an option.

Google Classroom 

  ❖ Students will need to login using their St. Matthew Gmail Account. 

If a student does not remember his or her account & password, please email me.

Your students have already joined multiple classrooms at school, so you should see a screen with a bunch of different classes they have joined. 

Students can click on a particular classroom that will then take them to the 

Class Stream. For example, if a student clicks on “Hoerner English”, they will be taken to Mrs. Hoerner’s Google Classroom. The class stream will show different assignments & messages the teacher posts. See the image below for what the class stream looks like. 

Students can also click “classwork” at the top, which will take them to any 

assignments posted. Once they get to the classwork page, they can click on a particular assignment. This will then take them to any docs, links, pdfs, etc. that the teacher has posted.
