Distance Learning Plan as of August 27, 2020

Hi everyone!  I hope you're all safe, healthy and that you're finding ways to stay active and busy at home.  I'm looking forward to our online learning adventure. We'll figure this out together! This is where you can find information about learning expectations, grading, attendance, and office hours for distance learning. 

Learning Expectations: We will be using Schoology this year, and meeting Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday during our scheduled class times in Google meet or Zoom (whichever works best). If you have any questions you can email, text me at my google voice number provided in Schoology or request a google meet (virtual face to face meeting). 

Assignments:  We will be meeting 4 times a week and completing assignments much like we would in the physical classroom. 

Grading:  Grades will be the same as in the physical classroom. Formative assignments will count for 20% of your grade and include discussions, notes and any learning or practice that leads to a Unit test. Summative assessments will count for 80% of your grade and include the Unit assessments to demonstrate the new knowledge and skills you have learned.

Attendance:  Attendance will be recorded for each class period. You will be marked present for attending class and participating in the lesson. 

Office Hours:  If you have any questions, please feel to contact me by email at any time! My email address is I will also have office hours on Wednesdays from 10:00 - noon.  During that time, you can call, text, or email me and I will be available to respond right away! Otherwise, if you contact me outside of my office hours it may take me hours to respond. 

Please take care of yourselves!! I miss you and can't wait to see you!

❤️ ~ Ms. Galvan
