Ms. Demetria Griffin
I hope all is well. Thank you for all of your hard work. I have received the March and April distance learning packets from most of you. For those of you that have not completed the distance learning packets, please turn them in by May 15th. Remember, if you scored poorly on any of the distance learning work, you can redo the assignment. There will be no required work for May due to the previous packets exceeding the recommended number of minutes set by the SC Dept. of Education. I have placed the SC Discus link on my class Clever page. Enrichment apps and links, such as free digital books, can be found on the SC Discus link. You can also work on APEX for enrichment (enrichment work is not graded).
As always, if you have any questions or concerns (or just want to say "Hi") please contact me. I am here to help. Stay Safe!
