Brand New School Year!

We would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to all our new students and existing students to our online program. 

We hope you like the new feature of the vertical split-screen view for your content and Q&A for each unit. You can still use the horizontal split-screen view if  you prefer that method. 

As you work and have questions, please don't hesitate to email your online teacher. They are here to help you!

It's helpful if you log in and work on your assignments daily so you can finish at the time given to you by your school. 

We hope you have a wonderful new school year and learn a great deal of new and exciting things in all your classes!
