The learning management system (LMS) platform used for all my classes is www.edmodo.com (“Edmodo”).  Students can review past work on Edmodo where applicable.  I will also provide review work on Edmodo.com.

For more information regarding this class page please go to Edmodo, which is the virtual LMS platform that is used in all my classes.  On Edmodo, students can find textbook chapters, instructions, workbook assignments, videos and general course information (where applicable, per class).  Fashion class assignments also consisted of “lab” projects such as knitting and crocheting.

Guardians and parents, your students have access to the www.edmodo.com website right now.  If there is make up work that some students are still working on, please send the makeup work in an “openable” word file to: slaughaj@pwcs.edu.  Please note that Google documents are not compatible with office 365 or Edmodo sometimes, so please do not use “Word” or “PowerPoint” from google documents to upload files in either of those areas. Please use the PWCS Office 365’s free resources for students. Sometimes students are unable to grant their teachers access to Google documents which further delays assignment submissions.

For questions during school hours, please use my email to contact me: slaughaj@pwcs.edu

All my best to you and be well!
