Distance Learning will be provided by Mustang Public Schools starting April 6th. There are two S.S. assignments for each of the weeks provided. I will be adding enrichment activities for all of my students on Google Classroom. Class codes are provided for each of my 6 classes under the "Copies of Daily Assignments" section above this one.
