How to Get the Most Out of Distance Learning

Dear Students and Parents,
As we adopt new ways of teaching and learning, I want you to follow these simple steps to get the most out of Distance Learning:
1. Students should log-in Schoology every day.
2. Pay close attention to due dates and assignment deadlines.
3. Please inform your teacher if you have any technical issues accessing instructional materials or submitting your assignments.
4. Parents, please use the Parent Portal to monitor your child's progress.
5. Parents and students can contact teachers any school day, except Tuesday, between the hour of 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm for a conference, to ask questions, to clarify assignments, or for any other class-related issues.

Spectrum News Story on Pacoima Singers: They have a song in their hearts, trophies on the shelf and a big trip to look forward to. “It’s pretty much a countdown until we leave to Vancouver, Canada," soloist Celeste Ignacio explained, looking at a digital clock in her classroom. The Pacoima Singers are heading north at the end of the week to compete in the Vancouver Heritage Festival and the pressure is high. “Their expectations are way up here for you," Dr. Scott Mandel told the students at a recent rehearsal.
