Weekly Lesson Plan

Dear Families,
 
Welcome to week 7 of remote learning! Thank you to those who were able to join us Friday for our Hispanic Heritage Month presentations. The students made me so proud. I think they enjoyed sharing their learning with you.
 
You may have received progress notes already. If you have questions or concerns about your child's progress, please contact me. You may check your child's Google Classroom and Aspen for more detailed information.
 
Reminders: 
 
Independent Work Time-Students are given enough time to complete independent work after each live session. Please check with them to make sure they are using this time to complete all assigned work.
 
Attendance-Attendance is taken at the start of each live session.  Live sessions are where instruction takes place. Please make sure your child is present. If you child needs to be absent for any part of the day, please contact the office at 773-534-3130. 
 
Daily Lessons-Look at the schedule below to see what we will be working on each day. Remember that  your child must log in to Google Meet from Google Classroom "Homeroom" at 8:45, 11:50, and 1:30 for me. They must log on from their special teacher's Google Classroom (Ms. York, Ms. Perez, or Mr. Soriano) at 2:45.
 
Do not hesitate to email me at jlmcgee@cps.edu if you have questions or concerns. I am willing to do whatever I can to support you and your child.
 
Be well and stay safe.
 
Best,
 
Mrs. McGee
