The county has asked me to post this PWCS Home Learning Resources link.  
http://track.spe.schoolmessenger.com/f/a/d43ruXw-t0TesqdQM6fsmg~~/AAAAAQA~/RgRgXRSCP0RBaHR0cHM6Ly93d3cucHdjcy5lZHUvY21zL09uZS5hc3B4P3BvcnRhbElkPTM0MDIyNSZwYWdlSWQ9NDE1MDY5MDdXB3NjaG9vbG1CCgAAAuF7Xpl_ynFSEWNyb3Nzb2FhQHB3Y3MuZWR1WAQAAAAB
Just copy and paste the above address into a new window.  You'll find optional daily schedules, learning links, and resources.  


Just a quick update for now...in the Files and Documents tab on the left, I have added a pacing guide that includes all the subjects taught (including phonics) in a calendar form staring from the beginning of the year until our last week, March 9-13.  This will make it easier for you to see what SOL standards we have covered so far this year.  Stay tuned for more information as it comes in!  Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!  
Miss y'all,

I hope everyone remains well!  The governor is holding a press conference at 2:00 this afternoon, and plans on making an announcement about the future of our schools.  I will update any information as necessary.  In the meantime, please keep abreast of county news, information, and updates by visiting the pwcs website often.  
I am adding pacing guide calendars for the following subjects to my files and documents tab on the left:  social studies, math, and science.  I have also added the Language Arts Standards of Learning.  As of right now, no new instruction is to take place, but that may change in the coming weeks.  You can use these pacing guides to see what instruction your child has already received in those subjects, so as to review the information with them. 
I will continue to check my email and Bloomz regularly.  Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Wow!  I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy during this extended break from school.  I am busying myself by catching up on laundry, reading, taking long walks, and thinking about my sweet kindergartener's faces.
