Office Hours for Specials Teachers Begin Monday, 5/18

Beginning Monday, May 18 students will have the opportunity to access office hours (if they choose, it's optional) for our P.E., music, art, and FLES teachers.  These office hours will be held from 1:30-2:00 for students in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades, and from 2:00-2:30 for students in 3rd, 5th, and 6th grades.  Office hours will occur daily, Monday through Thursday.  The purpose of these office hours is to give students an opportunity to connect live with specials teachers, ask any questions about a specials teacher's lessons/content, and receive feedback on completed work.  Students will access these office hours sessions by clicking on the button called "Specials Office Hours" on their grade-level Blackboard site
