     Welcome Students and Parents!
    Quick note--my maiden name is Wessels and my married name is Swearingen. My email is wwessels from prior years.
    I am so excited to be teaching our awesome third-grade students again this year, as well as diving into the virtual world of online learning with our kiddos.
    For distance learning, we will be using the platform Seesaw instead of Google Classroom like last spring. The kiddos can access that through Clever. In Seesaw you will find our class zoom link and all assigned activities. 
     Please refer to BISD's Return to School Guide for additional information

    Information for In-Class Learning
    ♥ Take Home Folder:
    ♥ Your child will bring home and return a binder/folder every day. In this binder/folder, the students will store their homework and school handouts as well as their daily reading/math fact log. This log is to be signed each evening, agreeing that your child has read 20 min and practiced their math facts (M-Th evenings, no weekend homework). 
    ♥ I use CLASS DOJO as a classroom management tool while in face 2 face instruction, so please sign up and share in your child's day! Classdojo.com
    ♥ Grades will be updated regularly in Family Access each reporting period and paper report cards will no longer be issued. If you require a paper copy of your child's grades then simply email me and we can get that to you.
