This week in Mrs. Rourke's class...Well, this week has been one for the books! I appreciate everyone's patience as we try to get everything figured out when changes are occuring at a rapid pace. I have already assigned several things to Google Classroom. I went over all of the assignments with the students yesterday and gave them new novels to read and respond to as part of their class work. As I told them, things can change quickly, but I will keep everyone up to date here on the website as well as Google Classroom. If your child truly requires technology at home, please remember to fill out the Google form sent via Remind 101 on Thursday evening. All of this is unchartered territory for everyone, but can be especially difficult for kids. I am available to students via email (they can email from their school accounts) or Google Classroom anytime they like. I can help with assignments, answer questions, or just chat. Please encourage them to keep in contact with me and their classmates. The daily reading responses are the method in which we will take "attendance." Other work can be completed on their own schedule. Students do not need to complete any assignments during the regularly scheduled week of spring break. Feel free to reach out with any questions!MarieWe will be using a TEAM Remind account for announcements and reminders. Please text @rbjteam to the number 81010 to join the group. This is our primary form of communication so it is very important that you take care of this as soon as you are able.For updates in the classroom, you can follow me on Twitter @zipfan.
