**Ongoing Learning Activities for Signet Students**

All our Signet students have access to their Signet Microsoft OneNote Notebook and the Reagan Signet Centers OneNote Notebook from any device at home.  There is no homework assigned from Signet class – our students complete all their work and research in the classroom.  However, students may feel free to complete any center of their choosing at home.  In the Reagan Signet Centers OneNote Notebook there are hundreds of puzzles and brain games to help stem boredom.  You can remind your child to look at the section “Puzzles for Between Centers.” They also have several online Breakout puzzles in their Notebooks.  Check out our website pages for some other websites and fun activities.  I’m happy to add more to the Notebook should we miss school for an extended length of time.

If students should complete a center, the Microsoft Center Reflection Form remains open.  We will continue to monitor the submitted forms and leave feedback for those students that submit reflections.

Please feel free to email should you require any additional resources or if we can be of any further help to you.
