ELA II: WE ARE MOVING TO GOOGLE CLASSROOM!

Hello everybody!
I hope this finds you happy, healthy and not too overwhelmed.  From now on I will be using Google Classroom as our primary platform.  On this I will post/assign and collect assignments.  In addition, next week I will be stretching my infant technological legs and venture into using Zoom and potentially Screencastify and maybe even other platforms.. I look forward to interacting with you guys once again.  Have a great rest of your week.  I sincerely thank you for your patience!
