Hello everyone!  I miss having the kids in class and the interaction we have daily!
I ask that you please continue to work on your packets. Please let me know if you are having any problems completing any of the work.  If you would like to send me a picture of the completed work, I will check it and send it back.  Also, send me pics of the activities you are doing.  I know a few of you have posted some of them on Facebook.  I realize this situation is not ideal, but if we all work together, we can be successful!  
 
Please check the school's webpage for great academic resources to use during this time.  I have already sent you some links for activities, projects, and live videos.  Please take advantage of these resources as you see fit. 
You may reach me through ClassDojo or FB messenger or email at ddingess@nlca.info.
I will update you with any new information as soon as I receive it.
I appreciate each of you and am praying God's protective arms around you!
