Welcome to Mrs. Snel's Homepage!Miss You
     Friday, April 3rd 
          Happy Friday! I'm so proud of all of your hard work this week. Continue to use my homepage as a checklist to complete everything subject by subject.  If you are having trouble with anything at all, please send me an email and let me know! Zoom check-ins will be Mondays and Thursdays from 9:45-10:00. 
          *New: Feel free to use the link on the word dropbox to submit assignments right to me. You can do this rather than sending separate emails. I will be notified when you submit somthing here. Dropbox for assignments done at home. You can also send pictures, videos, etc. If it is easier to email, you can continue to do that. 
          *New: This is a spot where we can see our classmates and have some fun. Feel free to share appropriate pictures and videos with your classmates, since we cannot see each other in school. Click the link on Shared folder to upload whatever you want to show everyone. You can continue to use Flipgrid rather than this, instead of this, or both!
