Happy Summer & Join Remind!

 Hello all! I hope you all have a great summer and get plenty of rest!
 
Students and parents/guardians that will have me for the 2017-2018 school year can go ahead and join my remind group and get a jump start this summer :) You can join by app or text. Please follow the instructions provided in the link below.
 
 
 
Want to keep your math skills sharp? Then look no further than Imagine Math (formerly ThinkThroughMath). Students use the same User ID and Password they had all school year and have been enrolled in a summer review pathway. This login and pathway is only active until August 10, 2017 so don't delay! I will be monitoring this optional program this summer.
 
 
Please email me if you have any questions in regards to either Remind or Imagine Math.
 
Happy summer,
 
Mrs. Jones
