    I am so happy to be teaching and getting to know your child this year! My contact information is mcrews@cleveland.k12.ms.us. On this website, I will include our math daily lesson, as well as science and social studies weekly lessons. I check my email at least twice a day between 7:30 and 3:30, but any emails after 3:30 will be answered the following morning. I look forward to inspiring and growing your child in math, social studies, and science throughout this year!!   

    We have a student intern, Ms Alyssa, with us until December! We are very excited to have her here! 

    We will take a mad minute test weekly, usually on Tuesdays. This is a G1 weekly grade. 

    Students are given time during the week to complete IReady lessons/assignments. They are given grades based on completing the amount of time and lessons They are required to have 45 minutes per week with 2 lessons passed.
