   Dear families,
       Starting on Monday, March 30, we will be starting to use google classroom, where all of the assignments can be found in one place. This will make it easier for everyone, where you only have to go to one place for everything. You will be receiving an email with your child's email and password to join google classroom. Please look on this page every day at 8:00 am for the day's assignments. All of the links that I put into my page, you will need to copy and paste into your browser. Then they should work. If you have any questions, please email me at cvotta@bishopmchugh.com.

Thank you,
Ms. Votta

Today's Morning Message:
     Today is our seventh day doing our Distance Learning Program! Please check this page every day at 8:00 am to see the assignments for the day. Families, please look in your email for links to enhance the learning. This is a recommendation, not a requirement. This is when you will do the morning work. It is to be done and submitted to me with the rest of the assignments. You can either screenshot it or scan it and send it to me. Please remember the school is no longer opened. Please look in your pile of assignments that have March Quick Writes and answer the question of "Who do you sit by at lunch? What do you talk about?" Please write it in the notebook I provided or on another piece of paper. I also hope to see everyone on the Zoom call at 10:00 am. Thank you, and keep up the great work.
