**BY ORDER OF THE GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA ALL PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED TO STUDENTS FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SCHOOL YEAR! **

Updated March 30, 2020:
Although PWCS is unable to provide instruction or class assignments to students while schools remain closed, our School Division hopes that the suggestions for optional learning activities posted here will help parents support student learning until schools re-open. Please remember that use of these materials and participation in these activities are optional and neither grades nor course credit will be awarded.


To Minimize student stress the following instructional practices are in place:
1. No new graded work should be assigned until further notice (at least April 14,2020).
2. All due dates of previously assigned work should be pushed to at least April  14, 2020 or beyond.
3. All work is optional during this time.
4. No large packets, busy work, or worksheets will be assigned.
5. Teachers can work with students making connections, thinking, and critical questioning.
6. Teachers can and should give helpful growth-productive feedback to students, but not assign any letter or numerical grades. 

 I will be using Google Classroom during this time away from school. Students should login with their login: username@stonewallmiddle.com. To access Google Classroom, visit:http://classroom.google.comPlease check Google Classroom for resources and materials for previous assignments, review, and meaningful and fun activities.  
Google Classroom Codes:

5A: so6pvsf
5B: x6zvnwd

In addition, Mrs. Goulart and Mrs. Barreto have created a classroom page for our group of 2020 support students. Visit http://classroom.google.com to join the class. If you have any questions or concerns, or need any assistance, please contact us through this page or by email. The class code to join is oq3fq3t.


Please let me know if your child has difficulty logging in to either Google Classroom or ixl.

In addition to what is here, please also check on your language arts teacher's page to see what they have.

NEED BOOKS TO READ BUT CAN'T GET OUT?????

Digital library cards are easy to get! Parents can visit this website and sign up for a digital library card. This gives them access to all of our digital resources including Overdrive, Hoopla, and our online databases. It does not give them access to our physical collection. Your child can download books and read them at home without leaving the house. 

Please fill out this form (in all CAPS), then click on 'Submit' to create your registration. Your Digital Card gives you access to all of the library's digital services. The Digital Library Card will expire in two years.
