Welcome to Ms. Macdonald's Class
Dear PCE Families,
I hope you are settling into our new way of living and learning. I want to be sure that you are clear on how I will generate assignments, how you can reach me, and how you can access other resources that may be available. In addition to my teacher webpage, it is my goal to use email and Our Google Classroom to share updates and resources. My goals are to provide you with learning opportunities that are engaging, keep us fresh on concepts we were working on, and gently introduce new ideas to keep us looking forward.
During our remote learning time, the main method I will use to communicate with students is Google Classroom. Suggested daily learning opportunities and enrichment activities, will be posted by 8:00 a.m. each morning. District-provided Student Engagement Materials are also available to reinforce and extend learning.
If you have any questions, please reach out. Email is the best way for parents to contact me. Students are encouraged to connect with me through Our Google Classroom.
Please stay in touch and take care,
Chromebooks: To stay informed about Chromebook assistance or future pick up information, please Click here.
Meals: Please Click Here for an Emergency Meal Schedule update.
Language Services: District websites can be translated in multiple languages. Use the drop-down menu at the top of the EPS Homepage to select "translate this page," and a Google translate window will open. You can then select the language needed.
Mrs. MacDonald's Newsletter for Monday, April 6
April 6-10 is our official spring break. If your child needs a break from Our Google Classroom you have my full support. If your child needs that "keep-in-the-routine" structure, there is an abbreviated version of Our Google Classroom, including a PADLET and a FLIPGRID for this spring break week. Included are 2 different activity grids, too, one for READING and one for ART. Your child can choose an activity and have some fun!
I have been teaching in Everett School District since 1990, first at Silver Firs Elementary and then at Penny Creek Elementary, as part of the school's original staff. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Washington / Seattle, a Teaching Certificate from the University of Washington / Seattle, and a Master's of Education from the Univerisity of Washington / Bothell.
Teaching is my passion, and I hope to nurture life-long learning in all of my student
