If you are an 8th grade student :  8th GRADE SIGNET STARTS THIS WEEK!!

Hello 8th Graders - I hope you can see this and spread the message.  If you cannot see your 8th Grade Course card - don't panic!

We will still have class.  Please refer back to your email from Mrs. Thompson for the correct day for you.  You will attend one day per week.

IMPORTANT:  You will only be admitted to zoom on your correct day.  

Class begins at 12:30pm (you will have to leave PE class by 12:27).   

The links to Zoom are listed in both 7th AND 8th grade SIGNET Canvas courses.  If you can still open 7th grade Canvas - you will see your zoom links at the top.  If you can get to 8th grade Canvas - HOORAY!!!  See you this week!

If you are scheduled to come to SIGNET class and you are having technical issues, please know we will work with you to make up what you miss. Notify us via email as soon as you can. 

If Zoom/Canvas is not working for anyone during your class time, please work independently on your unit/center. If this is not a possibility, you may choose to work on developing your critical thinking skills by working through one of the puzzles at the website below. Please take a screenshot of your progress to share with us. We will discuss 21st Century Skills used at our next meeting.
