Students will be required to submit their assigned work each day through Google Classroom.
 
Spanish- Thursday, 3/19 and Friday, 3/27 - Students will log onto www.rockalingua.com or locate it on the district website and complete the assignments that Senorita Pinzon posts.  If you need your student's login information, please contact Ms. Koribanics.
 
Online Resources: 
 
To access most of the online resources, students will go to www.wayneschools.com and under the Quick Links in the top right corner, select ClassLink. Students will then log on using their regular school username and password. If your student has trouble logging in, please email your student's teacher.  If you find that your student needs additional enrichment, they can select Students from the district website and choose 3-5 Elementary Enrichment.  Any of these assignments can be printed and completed and returned to school when we get back.   
 
We hope that you all stay safe and healthy during this time.  Thank you for your cooperation and support.  
 
Warm regards,
