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.
