    Attention all parents of 6th grade ELA students who have Mrs. Best!!!!

    Dear parents,

    I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to enroll in a text alert system for my classes at Riverside East.  The system is called Remind 101.  It allows us to send reminders or important information that is happening in our class/school such as report card dates, progress report dates, important class deadlines, etc.  To enroll for our class updates, simply download the Remind app on your cell phone.  To join my HOMEROOM:  Send a text to 81010 with @mrsbesthr in the body of the text message.  To join my ELA CLASS:  Send a text to 81010 with @mrsbests6t in the body of the text message.


    If your child is absent for any reason, they need to go to their ELA Google Classroom.  Under the "Classwork" tab, they will see a topic titled "Daily Lesson" where they could find the work they missed for any day they were absent.  I also post all the weekly spelling, grammar, vocabulary, study sheets, etc in my google classroom.  This is updated daily.  It's the student's responsibility to make up any missed assignments.  They are now able to access their Anthology and Reading Writing Companion (RWC) online via the Clever portal.  This has been reviewed with all students in class. Thank you!


    ALL material that has been covered in class as well as assigned homework will be posted in Google Classroom under "Classwork" and then under the heading that's called "Daily Lesson"!!!!  

    Students are able to access the Wonders Anthology and the Reading/Writing Companion (RWC) via the Clever portal from home.  They have been instructed how to use the portal.  All Spelling/Grammar/Vocabulary and any other instructional materials (such as class notes) can be accessed through Google Classroom under "Weekly Materials".
