Hello and welcome to Language Arts! My name is Ms. Painter and I am excited for the 2019-2020 school year! This year we will be focusing on furthering our reading and writing skills, to get ready for high school. My goal is for my students to feel prepared to be successful in the future. 

I miss you guys during this unexpected time off from school. If you would like for me to send you some activities to complete at home, email me and I will send them to you. If you need anything or just want to say hello, message me! Below are some resources that you can use, and remember..... reading is also good for you to do daily!

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. Please remember that use of these materials and participation in these activities are optional and neither grades nor course credit will be awarded.
