Portland East Middle School


Hello 7th grade students! We have missed seeing you daily and hope that you are all doing well. We are reaching out to check on each of you and to share some online instructional materials. Currently, we are planning to use our homeroom groups (2nd period) as Distance Learning contact groups.
1) Students will use Google Classroom for instructional activities. Invitations were sent to every student's Google student account. (lunch#This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) The password should be the student's lunch number unless the student has changed it previously. 
2) Once on the 7th Grade Google Classroom, click on "Classwork" in the top center tab. Each subject area has entered optional assignments from Sumner County and/or your classroom teacher. These assignments can receive feedback, but no official grade will be posted. We encourage you to participate in this distance learning opportunity.
3) The 7th grade team has created a learning schedule to provide specific times for teacher availability on Google Classroom. Students are welcome to complete the assignments at any time, but they are encouraged to visit each subject area during the specific times below for feedback and interaction with their teachers.
12:00 pm -5:00 pm Daily:
Monday & Wednesday - Math (Dr. Agee / Mrs. Villines)
Tuesday & Thursday - ELA (Mrs. Elrod / Mrs. Guthrie)
Friday - Science & S.S. (Mrs. Tucker / Mrs. Wilson)
**Our focus is more on the ability to provide some learning ideas and to allow us to communicate with one another regularly as we learn. Student interaction on Google Classroom will be a priority for those students who choose to participate. 
4) If you have specific questions, our emails are listed on the school website at pem.sumnerschools.org. Of course, use Google Classroom to communicate as well. Additional information can be found on Facebook and the Sumner County Schools website. 
Students, first and foremost, we hope you are safe and well. We miss you and can't wait to hear from you on Google Classroom! Check your Google account for more information and join us! Please be patient with us as we all learn to navigate this new way of learning. We love you all.
