Although PWCS is unable to provide instruction or class assignments to students while schools remain closed, our School Division hopes that the suggestions for optional learning activities posted here will help parents support student learning until schools re-open. Please remember that use of these materials and participation in these activities are optional and neither grades nor course credit will be awarded.  

Dear Parents/Guardians,

My office hours are Tuesday from 10:30-11:30. 

I've moved grade-specific items to the Files and Documents area on the left side of my Class Page. Third through Fifth Grade can continue working on their research using the resources that I've posted under their classes in Files and Documents.  Fourth and Fifth Grade can work on the Advertising Unit to complete the Roller Coaster Force and Motion Unit.  

Lessons for The Call of the Wild and Charlotte's Web are both posted in Files and Documents.  

If you do not have Office365 installed on your computer for your student to access Microsoft Teams, please go through the following process:

To download Office 365 on home devices, students can log in with their user name and password. Their user name will be a complete student email address Which ends in @pwcs-edu.org
Once on the Office 365 home screen, select Install Office from the upper right. A drop down box appears. Choose the down arrow for Office 365 apps.
Then follow the prompts from the next Windows to run the install commands.

Please visit my Useful Links page for tons of brain-building and engaging activities.

During this time, please feel free to email me with any concerns.

Stay well, everyone!

All the best,
