Mrs. Starrett's Class
Welcome to Mrs. Starrett's class!
My office hours will be:
Monday - Thursday: 10:00- 11:00 AM AND 1:30- 2:30 PM
Friday: 11:00AM-12:00PM and 1:30-2:30PM
During these hours, I will be available to answer questions or check in with you about anything! I can make phone calls or if needed, do video conferencing. This doesn’t mean that I won’t respond to comments or look at work other times, these are the times I have set aside to connect with students and families. My ultimate wish for weekly assignments is that you try your best and ask questions whenever you need. I'm always here to help!
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me via DOJO or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
During this time of remote learning I want to help all students and families to feel successful! I am working hard to create opportunities during this time to help students continue our 4th grade learning and to grow the academic and social emotional skills we have worked so hard on this year!
It is important that all students spend time on the academic work provided in Google Classroom weekly.
Your child’s attendance in remote learning will be dependent on their completion of the work provided weekly. To be marked as present for the week, students must submit the assignments in the core content areas. These assignments must be submitted by Friday each week to their teacher. I will put due dates as Sunday each week, for those that need extended time.
Obviously, if there are any difficulties accessing work or completing assignments for any reason, I ask that you reach out to me or another school staff member to make us aware of your situation before Friday evening. As always, our top priority is to support our students and community in whatever ways we can!
I will post all of the work for the week by Monday at 7:45 am into our Google Classroom. I will be sure to include all supports and materials at this time so that students can begin this learning and practice for the week when they are ready!
It is my hope that students will spend 8-10 hours on school work each week. If you find that your child is spending a lot more than that please contact me and we will make adjustments together. If you find that your child is completing the work in a much shorter amount of time, there are choice assignments they can complete. These assignments are optional and do not need to be turned in. If your child has an IEP or receives special education services, they will not need to complete all of the work I give. They need to complete the work given by the special education teachers. My goal, as always, is to provide suitable work for your child to continue to grow as a 4th grader, prepared for their next step - 5th grade!
- Students and families are welcome to create their own schedule or checklist to complete this work throughout the week as long as it can be turned in by Friday at 6pm. This will allow me to review student work and offer feedback on their progress and growth! All assignments for the week are grouped in Google Classroom.
