Algebra 1

“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.” Gilda Radner

Highlights/Upcoming Events & Dates

  • We are currently in Learning at Home for the rest of the week (11/16/21 to 11/19/21). Check Google Classroom daily for what needs to be accomplished with the handouts I sent home. This isn't an early holiday break. Learning is still going on and expected.

  • For Math - students will be using Google Classroom because it sinks up with Pearson

  • IMPORTANT: During normal school hours, GoGuardian is recording what websites your student(s) are going to on their school device. Practice good digital citizenship in remote learning times!
