Welcome to week two. I hope to have a video tutorial for this week’s lesson available Tuesday. The assignments for Week 2 are posted to http://MrRobertsScience.com.
If you didn’t finish the week 1 assignments, I’ve re-opened them through Thursday. Take advantage of this to get your work done.
In addition, some grades are starting to move from McGrawHill to Aeries. Parents – is your child missing the last two assignments in Aeries? Then they did not finish the materials from Week one! Please encourage them to spend some time with the science curriculum each day. I’m only asking 30 minutes a day, less than half of what would be expected during normal circumstances.
Stay safe, get exercise, and do school work.

As we enter a new era due to COVID-19, we will be conducting classes online. Classes will be conducted asynchronously – that means I’ll post assignments daily, and you will be responsible for completing those assignments.
If you do not have a laptop and internet access, please contact me or the school front office. We have laptops available for loan. Every student in CVUSD needs a laptop – so if you currently share with a sibling, contact us so we can ensure everyone has laptop availability.
Your first online assignment will be posted Wednesday morning.
