My Home Page

  • Welcome students, parents, and families.

    This is a most unusual time for us all, however, we will all grow from it

    and be stronger when this all passes.

    As much as I miss seeing everyone each day, this is the best way to keep you safe.

    Please be patient and follow all CDC guidelines for hand washing and "social distancing"

    so thatyou and those you love will stay safe.

    Please remember this:  One way or another, it will all work out,

    and we will be in school again to make more awesome memories!

    Take care,

    Mr. B

    Communication/assignments and more:

    Please know that I will be communicating mainly through Schoology for our online learning.

    Using the messaging tool in Schoology, my coteachers and I can provide information

    and feedback.  Likewise, we will post assignments and discussions for students to complete/participate in.

    I am insisting that all class communication takes place through our Math Course in Schoology. 

    This is the best way to ensure that only people associated with the class can communicate

    with the students and it isolates student communication to the specific course.  In this way, we

    protect students from outsiders and protect their privacy, information, and data.

    It is important to know that when a student posts to a discussion or replies on a

    discussion/assignment/announcement item, all students in that class will be able to see the post.

    If the student wishes send a message to me, the messaging tool is used and that will send a message

    to me that is similar to an email, but remains within the Schoology platform as a privatee message.
