Good morning everyone!

Not sure about where you are but in Creemore we have snow this morning! This is the view from my front door. I'm not entirely happy about this!

Just a quick note this morning. Keep up the good work, it looks like everyone has been progressing through the week at their own pace. Tomorrow is Good Friday, so you will only have one task that day - to click "Turn In" on your Language Doc, your Math Doc and your Reading Log. Today you can work on getting stuff finished up, and as always get in touch if you have any questions.

Most of you probably know Ms. Sullivan, one of the EAs at Tos. She shared this video yesterday of all of the environmental initiatives she and her husband have built on their property. I thought you might find it interesting.

Last thing - our IXL stats! We've now answered almost 1,500 questions as a class. Again, I haven't assigned any IXL yet (there is some in your math for today) but this is great learning/practice to do in your "flex time." Don't be afraid to stray away from my "suggested skills" and work on some other ones of your choice. Down below is our leaderboard, which only tracks questions answered - it is not a measure of how well students are doing! Just fun to have a bit of a competition. Looks like Sasha is on top so far!

That's all folks! Have a fantastic day!

Mr. Holden

It's important that we keep in touch!

Send me an email at

I will be checking emails between 9 and 3:30 on "school days." If you need some face-to-face help, we can schedule a Google Hangout... just shoot me an email to set one up!


I will also be setting up some times for us to meet as a class on Google Hangouts. I'll let you know when I have a schedule figured out!
