 Dear Parents, 
Welcome to the fourth grade eLearning Program at Mater Dei.  Each morning the work for your child will be posted at 9:00 AM.  Each day will begin with a morning prayer provided by Miss McCaughan and Miss Waltrich.  
The daily learning plan is posted below.  Most of the work will be accessed through your child's Google Classroom accounts.
The work provided daily should take your child  approximately three hours to complete.  I will have office hours between 10: 00-11:00 daily.
During this time I will be available for questions and concerns. In addition, I will be monitoring by email frequently and will answer any questions
as soon as I can.
