Please take a moment and read the letter below: thank you


Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 school year Myers Families! This may not be the start of the year we are accustomed to but please know that I am ready to make your child’s art class engaging, purposeful, and fun. I am very much looking forward to “seeing” all of my students during the first week of school!

Below are some questions you may have about my classes:

Are Special Area Classes Required?

Yes! Fine and Performing Arts, Library Media Class, and Physical Education are a vital part of your child’s well rounded education at Myers.

How does my child join their art class?

There are two ways to join.

#1. Go to your child’s Google Classroom homepage and select “JOIN” in the art class.

Or…

#2. Open your child’s District email account.

first.lastname@k12.wcsdny.org

*Password: First name and student ID (first letter is uppercase/no spaces)

There is an email from me with a link to join their classes.


When will my child’s art class meet?

Select your child’s grade level to open the link to their Special Area Class live meet schedule.

Kindergarten First Grade Second Grade


Third Grade Fourth Grade Fifth Grade


Sixth Grade SC Kindergarten, First, and Second Grades


Can I view all of my child’s assignments in one place?

Yes! Go to your child’s Google Classroom Homepage, select “To-do” in the top left corner of the screen. You will see the assignments from ALL of the classes your child is enrolled in.


How will my child be graded?

Art courses use standards based grading. Grades are based on formative and summative assessments (observation of skills demonstrated and formal assessments). Please make sure your child turns in their assignments. Blank assignment submissions can’t be assessed a grade and will be returned for your child to complete and. resubmit. I hope this information is helpful.

Do you have questions, concerns? The best way to reach me is by email @ brette.mcarthur@wcsdny.org. I will respond to you as quickly as possible! I will have office hours daily from 1:40-2:20 (or by appointment if needed). This means I will be available to answer any questions you have in regards to assignments and/ or supplies. I will try to make everything as simple and as stress free as possible, I am very aware your core subjects are your priority.

Talk to everyone soon, I miss you all!

Sincerely,

Mrs. McArthur
