"The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep ..."

To parents and students: The COVID-19 emergency is posing challenges to all of us. Not the least of these is learning a new way to do things. In this sense we all have many miles to travel to reach the end of the school year. Our primary method of instruction will be by utilizing APEX. APEX is a computerized lesson and assessment program that the students are familiar with. They are currently using it in most of their classes at CEC. The login for this app is the same for all classes. What makes this program useful is that it is accessible at home on the internet, or even from a smart phone. You can even tell it to read the passages to you! It is aligned with the Common Core standards. APEX works best if the students take the time to read all of the material, and do not simply try to guess their way through the assessments. For more on using Apex click here.
It is essential that we stay in touch. Feel free to email me. I will be notifying everyone of new assignments through the REMIND app so please sign up for Remind. You need to do this for each of your classes. Click here to find out how to sign up for Remind.
Current Assignments: Beginning April 13th, there will be online APEX assignments for all grades. See each grade page (on left) for details of daily assignments or click on the following links.
Third Quarter Incomplete Work is another page on my website. There are assignment pages for each grade. It should be listed in the left column or click here. Please complete the ones you did not do and email me the finished result so I can put in a grade for you. You can also scan the work, or even send it to me as a clear picture via Remind. You can check for what assignments you did not complete on the Parent Portal. Be sure to look under 3Q for the third quarter marking period.
