Week 5 Google Classroom

Good Morning 2A Families,

It was wonderful seeing everyone Friday/Saturday during our community Zoom! We are plugging along with our Google Classroom Curriculum! A note about grading going forward:

Grading: We will still be sending back comments on all the work that gets turned in, but we will also be assigning a grade per day (1-4). This grade will reflect a combination of the percentage of work completed and the general quality of that work. It would be a great help to us if you are able to turn in each day’s work as it is finished. A great tip is to use the camera feature on the google classroom app. This will allow you to go to the day, snap a picture of your child’s work, and immediately upload it. Thank you for your help with this! If you are turning in the work under one day, please make a special note of where to find it. It will reflect "not turned in" on your end, however will not be counted as late, as we have the full week's work.

Please look at the Google Class…

Hello 2A Families!

This week we are transitioning to Google Classroom! Please follow the instructions that were given on Friday in order to sign up and start exploring the classroom. There is a place for you to turn in packets one and two from the previous weeks, and find work for the upcoming week. The daily schedule is moreso a pacing guide. We understand that some families have parents still working from home and might have designated homework days, or have more than one child needing access to the computer to work. Work for the week will be due the following Monday, with the exception of the first due date (next Tuesday).

Our weekly Zooms have changed slightly to Tutoring with Mr. Kiehne on Tuesdays, and our Zoom Community on Friday. This week’s community building will be discussing the virtue of the month, Integrity!

We will be assisting with troubleshooting and updates on Google Classroom this week, and will be able to direct you to tutorials and answer questions you might have.…

Zoom Meetups!

Hello 2A Families!

It was a pleasure hearing from you all! I am excited to share that we will be able to host two Zoom Meetings this week with our class! 💜

Zoom is a site that is currently being used by all of our teachers and administration throughout the Great Hearts Network enabling us to Video chat and have some face time, which has been lovely throughout this ordeal. You are able to sign up with a free account on your computer or downloaded as an app on your phone. You can find the site HERE.

We will have one meeting on Tuesday, 10:00-10:30 to say hello to everyone and have a small chat about our virtue of the month, Perseverance.

Hello From Home!

Hello Wonderful 2A Families!

We cannot express again how much we miss all of our wonderful students and families. We hope during this time you are safe with your families, and possibly working on some new crafts and hobbies!


 I for one, am catching up on my large stack of books, watching Disney Princess movies, and working on some fashion styling/drawing/stitching!

My cat Abbie doesn’t think I’m funny 😒

My son Elias and I have taken a few walks last week to get fresh air!

You have most likely by now received the 2nd Grade Packets. If you have somehow missed it, you may locate the online version of the packet HERE.

I urge you to consistently check in with updates on the Great Hearts website, as the FAQ will have the most recent updates.

Mr. Kiehne and myself will be calling families starting today throughout the week to answer questions about the packet that you might have, as well as to say hello to you and the kiddos!

We are currently working on setting up Zoom meetings so that we ha…
