Educational Learning Opportunities

Hi Sharks!

What’s Going On?


For the next few weeks we will be providing educational learning opportunities while you/your student will be at home during this time to stay safe. While these tools are completely optional, I advise you all to take part in these learning opportunities so that you don’t fall behind and continue to grow academically! On Tuesday the majority of you collected packages that I put together that contains three weeks worth of school! If you did not pick yours up there will be another opportunity on: THURSDAY, MARCH 19, 2020 BETWEEN 1 - 3 PM in the bulldog gym. I have posted resources that you are welcome to use to help you get through this time. If I can provide any support to you and your family please let me know! Keep reading below for some further explanation of what’s going on.

  • I am just an email away! You can ALWAYS email me at kmasterson@colfax.k12.ca.us
    • If you need an alternate way of communicating, but CAN send me an email, please let me know and I can give you a phone number
    • If you need an alternate way of communicating, but CANNOT send me an email, please contact the school and they will get a hold of me. 
  • My Google Classroom, which will be updated with powerpoints to walk you through each day, can be accessed here: https://classroom.google.com/c/NDYyNDMyNTcxNjda

  • Log what’s happening
    • You are a part of history right now! How cool is that? Write down what is happening around you, what you’re feeling, and how you and your family are solving problems - this will be really cool to look back on in the future.

FAQ:

(If you have any questions please ask them as more likely than not, someone else has the same question. I will continue to update this section)


Q: Is there a due date?

A: Nope! There is no due date. The only thing I ask is that when we return from school, please return ALL contents that were in the package to me regardless of what is complete and what is not complete. This way I can keep track of what supports you may need and I can keep track of my class set of Frindle books.


Q: Are kids allowed on campus?

A: No, there are absolutely no students or children allowed on campus. Staff is not allowed to bring their children either.


Q: I don’t have internet, is it vital my student access your google classroom?

A: It is not important, don’t worry. It is there strictly as a resource to help you.


Q: I can’t get access to your google classroom.

A: Check what email account you are on when you attempt to gain go on my classroom. your student must be on their LASTNAME@cesbulldog.com

    • For example, If I had a Tiffany Havens in my class, she would be havens@cesbulldog.com
    • Some of you may have numbers at the end of your email. For example, If there were multiple people with the last name Smith, their email might be smith42@cesbulldog.com

Final Notes:


I did not realize just how much I would miss you guys until the reality set in when I was making packages for you. I cannot express how much each one of you have touched my life and how much I will be thinking of YOU. If you ever need to talk, please reach out to your guardian and they will help you get in contact with me. Please stay safe and I look forward to when I get to see your beautiful faces and spirits! The good news is that we are still all on the same team, and let’s be honest, SHARKS RULE!
