I sent an email to all GATE families on March 25. If you didn't see it, here's what it said...
I hope you are doing well and taking care while our community deals with the Covid-19 outbreak. I’ve talked (messaged) with some of you through Class Dojo. It was great to hear from you! If you haven’t been on Dojo yet, please sign in to your account and look at the class announcements for GATE. If your family has not set up a Dojo account, please do so.
Until school opens again, we are doing virtual learning. In addition to the activities provided by your classroom teacher, I am posting activities to our GATE Google Classroom. The activities will not be graded but can be a fun way to keep yourself busy and thinking while you are at home.
Online activities can be accessed through these websites:
Clever - https://www.thiriotes.com/students
iReady printable activities - https://www.thiriotes.com/iready
Google Classroom - classroom.google.com
Disneyland Project - www.GATErocks.com
Class Website - www.myFunTeacher.com
School Website - www.thiriotES.com
Have a question? Want to talk? I am available Monday thru Friday from 9:30AM to 3:20PM through email (email@example.com), our class website (www.myfunteacher.com), Class Dojo, and Google Classroom. You can send me a message or a video. I’d love to hear from you!
If you don’t have access to email, that’s not a problem. You can use the contact form I have posted on our website. The message will be sent directly to me. You can find it here: myfunteacher.com/miss-powell.html Just scroll down on that page and you’ll see the form.
In the next day or two, please do the following:
1. Let me know that you have received this message and respond with the best contact method for your family.
2. Sign on to Google Classroom and start working on the posted activities. If you don’t remember the email address you use for signing in, let me know and I will send it to you. Your password is your 8-digit birthday info: YYYYMMDD
3. Check out Class Dojo and say hi.
Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. I look forward to hearing from you!
Stay safe… stay healthy… and stay in touch,
