Corona Virus Break - While we are at home, students' assignments will be posted in Google Classroom each week for them to complete. Each class period has a code which will enable them to complete the assignment. The assignments are not intended for the student to work an hour each day, as if they were in school, but simply to ensure they are doing work to prevent them from falling behin while out of school. If your child has a problem, please don't hesitate to email me at VRLewis@spart7.org, at which time I will get back with you asap. I will be online from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM, but will also check my email periodically each hour.
These are the codes for each period; 1st period - bi26fok 3rd period - 3exwms 4th period - u36c437 5th period - ndpn2u7
Please take care of you and your family and be safe. As we've heard so often, these are unpresidented times and we don't know how long this break from school will last, but we can work together to stay caught up so no one will have their grades to suffer. Meanwhile, I am praying for each of you and your families, our school staff, state, and nation, that none of us will suffer from the virus before an answer can be found to eliminate it. If there's anything I can do to help you in any way, please let me know.

Absent Assignments - When students are absent for various reasons, they typically get behind in their classwork and assignments. While it is impossible to include everything that will be covered in class during the students' absence, there are still some things that can be done at home that will ensure minimizing zeroes for missed work. The first part of each week is set aside for students to define vocabulary and essential questions that will be discussed that week. Completing these things allow the student to understand and contribute in the discussions as I demonsrate the concepts for that week. These vocabulary definitions may also be used on Friday's test that we have every week - so it is imperative that they bring this material to class after completing it at home. If a student is too ill to complete this work, then provisions will be made for him/her to complete it when he/she returns to school, but if they are home for OSS or other reasons, then this assignment should be completed and returned. If you have any questions about this, please email me at VRLewis@spart7.org.
