Mrs. Simpson's Math & Science

     Hello boys and girls!  Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year and welcome to 4th grade!!  
     After a crazy year last year, I know you are ready to get back to learning and filling your brain with all kinds of cool new math skills that you will use in life. Oh my goodness, there's a lot to learn in Math!  
Please browse my web page and be sure to read about Google Meets rules and Classroom etiquette in case we have to go virtual this year. In order for virtual learning to be productive, we must all abide by the expectations.  
If you ever have any questions just email me at [email protected].    I look forward to a great year and working with you all!

Learn From Home/Virtual Learning Students Information




Virtual Learning Information

As a reminder, the commitment to virtual learning is one nine weeks (grade PK-8) and one semester (grades 9-12).  Information and guidelines about the Learn from Home/virtual learning option, posted in early July on the system website, remain available at


Virtual Learning Attendance

Most lessons will not be live; instead, lessons will be recorded by teachers as they are being taught. Students in grades K-12 are expected to log in to Google Classroom during the school day to watch the recordings, complete the assignments, and communicate with the teacher.  Attendance will be monitored through the submission of the weekly assignments. There may be some scheduled live sessions, but these will be announced by the teacher. Students who are submitting weekly assignments will be counted present; failure to submit any work for the week or to participate in any live class sessions will result in a student’s being marked as absent in the official student record.


Courses will be accessed through Google Classroom and/or the Edgenuity platform. Teachers will post assignments and videos, host video chats, etc., with a specified timeline that will need to be strictly adhered to by students. Students participating in the virtual learning option (Learn from Home) will be expected to log in and participate in all scheduled online lessons and assignments during the school day hours. While students will not be logged in to the computer for the entire day, they will have scheduled meetings with the teacher through Google Meet, Zoom, Webex or other web conferencing tools at given times during school day hours.


Student online sessions with the teacher will be recorded. Commitment to the online virtual option (Learn from Home) indicates agreement to the recorded sessions.


Virtual Learning Grading Practices / Testing

Assignments which mirror those completed by the face-to-face students will be posted by the teacher in Google Classroom. Learn from Home students are expected to adhere to the timelines provided by the teacher.  Assignments, unless otherwise instructed by the teacher, will be submitted through Google Classroom.




Failure to complete assignments in a timely manner or to participate in virtual classes will result in failing grades that could lead to course failure and/or grade retention.


To ensure mastery and provide feedback on learning, students are expected to complete assignments without the aid or assistance of others. Grades and attendance will be posted in the PowerSchool Parent Portal as usual. If you do not have a Parent Portal account, please contact your child’s school. Photo ID is required to register.


All students must participate in all required federal and state assessments (GKIDS, GAA, Georgia Milestones, ACCESS) as well as all local assessments (common formative assessments, quizzes, tests, projects, STAR Reading/STAR Math, i-Ready). Many of these are required for promotion.
