      Tips to Make Remote Learning Time Go Smoothly:

    Please remind your child to MUTE themselves during class instruction or when classmates are presenting information.  We can hear the TV, dogs, kids and parents talking.  I try to mute them if that is happening.  We don’t want to invade your privacy either.

    Suggest that they use the restroom during our break times and during their hour lunch break.

    I need to be able to see them during instruction.  I have had many times where I call on a student and they are just gone.  Their name is there but they are not visible or answering when I am talking to them.

     

                    Check out our Classroom Newspaper

    Some of our students have started the Buchholtz Class Newspaper for 2020-2021.  They will be filling you in on what we are doing in class and in their Specials. 

     

    Thank You

    I want to thank all of my fifth graders for being ready to go each morning.  I appreciate how they have been helping each other with technology and supporting each other when they have questions.

    Also, a big thank you to all of my parents, who have been so supportive.  I appreciate you so much.
