We are so excited for school to start again. Check out my class Power Point for a lot of information. This is for face-to-face as well as online students.

Don't forget your masks, water bottles, and snacks on the first day.

To help you get started, check out the step-by-step guide document above

I, Mrs. Culver, am your homeroom and Science teacher. Ms Wilkins is your Math teacher, and Miss Meredith is your Reading and Social Studies teacher.

You must log on and do your assignments every day to be counted present.
We can see when you logged in and how much time you spent on each assignment.
The work is the same whether you are a student in class or online.
DON’T STRESS!!! We are all learning this together. If you ever have ANY problems or concerns, e-mail us, text us, or call us. We are you teachers and are here to help!
If you come back to school, you will be in this class.
There are quick link buttons on the Walls homepage and my teacher page.

We will get in contact with you once a week, but you can call us first if you need us!

It is also YOUR responsibility to let US know if you need any help. Email is a good way to reach us. You will all have an email address. You can also message us through Schoology. Your parents can also email, call, or message us through the School Status. That is the app that calls parents and we teachers text them through. (I know Schoology and School Status sound the same, and it can be confusing. Just remember that you will do all your work through Schoology.)
