WELCOME TO OUR DOWNS' DRAGONS

3rd GRADE WEBPAGE

Please check back often to see new updates and information.

(Last updated: 4/13/2020)
 
As mandated, our school will be closed through the remainder of the
school year.
 
Beginning Distance Learning as of Tuesday, April 14th. As a school we are
still trying to figure out what that looks like for each grade level and each class.
Please be patient with me as I learn how to use online resources to tech- its new
territory for me. 
 
We will be using our Google Classroom as our "hub" for Distance Learning. 
Information with our Google Class code and the student usernames /passwords
will be coming to you via REMIND on Monday 4/13.

NOTE:  You will need to refer to the CLASS CODE that I sent in REMIND. 
(If you need that again, message me on REMIND.)
 
 

> > > URGENT:  If your student does not have a device to work from,

contact Mr. Brown at the school office 530-253-3551  to make

arrangements to borrow a Chromebook from school.  < < <

 
Now that we have begun Distance Learning (on April 14th), grades will be
mandatory for student work.
Please know that we understand the challenges of having to teach your own child. 
My promise to you is that we will start slowly and with review work before moving
into longer work periods or new information.

At this time I do not plan to use the sites below for lessons, however these are good tools for reviewing skills. Students may use these at their convenience, or at your direction, but these sites below are not required to be used. These sites are given to you as enrichment resources should you need them. Please be sure students complete the work given to them in our Google Classroom. These lessons will be required/graded.
 
 
Most importantly, THANK YOU for your support during the school year and especially during this ever changing time.
 
If you have any questions, please contact me on REMIND, phone me, text me, or email me at sdowns@janesvilleschool.org .
Please give me time to respond, I have a lot of new things on my plate. If I have not responded after 24 hours, please reach out to me again.
 
Remember Downs' Dragons Never give up! We keep trying no matter how hard the situation may seem. We make hard look easy, because we never give up!
STAY SAFE---STAY HEALTHY---STAY AWESOME!
 
-Mrs. Downs
