Greetings and Salutations,

Let me start by saying that I miss all of you and through this difficult time I will be making every effort to provide you all with as much guidance and stability as I can. I will be providing review sheets and reading assignments which can be used to reinforce and brush up on all the skills and material which we have covered thus far. I will encourage you all more than ever to keep up with current events as we use to and to be encouraged. I will also continue to post our weekly teachable moments. If I can be of any assistance please do not hesitate to contact me at edwardje@pwcs.edu and I will be there to the best of my ability.
*Notice: All of these assignments and resources listed are not mandatory (they are optional) and will not be assigned a grade or put into the grade book. If a student would like to turn in any missing assignments or while at home, please email me at edwardje@pwcs.edu for that work.

Teachable Moment:
Do not be afraid of failure, but please be terrified of regret! Though we are in troublesome times and your educational endeavor has taken a slight detour you can not give up on your education and your dreams, as giving up is the birth of regret. Remember from a teachable moment earlier in the year I said let the things around you continue to encourage you, The clock says that time is precious and do not waist a single minute; the fan says to keep your cool in times of adversity; the ceiling says to be encouraged and always hold your head up; the lights say it's your time to shine; the moon and the stars are there to remind you to always shot for the moon, because even if you miss you'll still be among the stars.
