It's a snow day! If you are reading this message, you have received a phone call from our School Messenger System saying that we are having a Blizzard Bag Day. Please remember that today is a school day at your home or wherever your child is spending the day.
I want your child to have some time to play outside today, but it's important for her/him get the Blizzard Bag completed too. To get started, click on the tab at the top for the correct blizzard bag day. Then read through each assignment, click on the links, and complete the assignments.
Here is how a Blizzard Bag Day works. Your child can login to my Blizzard Bag by going to the schoolwebsite newdurhamschool.org. There you'll be able to find the Blizzard Bag page. If internet access is not available, students may complete the paper version of the Blizzard Bag that I have provided for you in the folder that was sent home. All of the materials needed to complete the assignments are included in the bag, except for an independent book for your child to read.
Included in the Blizzard Blog are assignments for Art, Physical Education, Music, Media Center, and Health. If your child has one of these classes today, they should complete the assignment for that class as well.
Assignments can be submitted to me online through your child's GWRSD Gmail account. I have included your child's username and password on a sticker on the inside of the Blizzard Bag folder. They may also turn in paper copies to me at school tomorrow. If you or your child have questions about any of the assignments, I will be online from 8:00-9:00 AM and from 12:30-2:30 PM. You will be able to leave a comment for me at the bottom of the Blizzard Bag page that your child is working on or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will respond to you during those times. Thank you! We hope you get to enjoy some time with your child today! Sincerely, Ms. Martens
