Dear Parents and Students,

As we begin our adventure into virtual learning and Prince William County's Phase 4 of continuity of learning... We will be providing content of previously taught concepts only.  Each week we will be providing directions and materials to facilitate learning opportunities.  The material provided remains optional and ungraded.  Please check your teacher's class page for materials and instructions.  Below is the schedule for once a week Social Studies instruction and office hours with your teacher.

Instructional Time- Thursdays from 8:30 - 10:00

• We will be providing 10-15 minute of direction/instruction through the powerpoints or video for review of content that has already been delivered prior to March 13th.

• Remainder of the time will be spent doing follow-up activities linked to the instruction on their own (self-paced powerpoints that students can interact with as they wish, and an activity based on the presented content)

• We will be available during this time to answer any questions/concerns on the content presented using Microsoft teams

• We will also be sending weekly emails to parents communicating the topic that will be instructed this week

Office hours are Fridays from 1:30 - 3:00

• During this time, we are accessible to students or parents asking questions via email or Microsoft Teams

•  We encourage students to use the office hours to ask specific questions pertaining to the weekly instruction


*Remember, all materials provided are optional and ungraded.  If your student needs to improve a grade, please contact your teacher for second chance activities.


Week of 3/30 to - 4/3

Students we will be reviewing past concepts/content. The material that is posted is for just review and learning opportunities. The assessments are not graded and will be used for feedback and review.  You can look at the study guides and notes that you have at home to complete any activity or questions.  Included are also activities related to each unit.  The Web page will be updated to include all the units as we progress.

Hello students and families, I hope everyone is safe and healthy. I miss you guys and can't wait to see you all soon. In hopes to brighten your day, some teachers and staff at Rippon made a video, check it out if you have time. The link is - Rippon Staff Video

Per PWCS guidelines, I am not assigning any new content or graded assignments through March 27th. I have posted a message for the students in Microsoft Teams, just have students login and respond. I am also in the process of adding review activities and links to my class web page. Feel free to work on these activities or visit a website listed. If you find a great resource or website, email me and I will upload for others.

I am in the process of creating a folder on my class page with a copy of all graded assignments (except exams) and extra credit opportunities. Once this is complete, I will send information on how to complete NHIs. At this time, I have not received any specific information on grades and report cards for the rest of the school year.

Continue to check the PWCS website and Rippon class pages for updates.

Stay safe and healthy! *Although PWCS is unable to provide instruction or class assignments to students while schools remain closed, our School Division hopes that the suggestions for optional learning activities posted here will help parents support student learning until schools re-open.
