THANK YOU
Dear
Parents and Guardians,

I appreciate your endless hard work and support, especially during this challenging time. With the school moving to remote learning, I will cherish our partnership even more. 

I will continue to provide your son or daughter with clear topic-review activities, prompt feedback, and encouragement. I know your time is limited, and I value your opinion and input. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or need to reach out. 

You are amazing! And, without you, my job would be impossible. 

Thank you kindly.

Ms. Rutledge

Hello Parents and Guardians, 

I've decided to use
Khan Academy as an additional resource to assist students with:
1) completion of work assigned prior to March 13. 
2) topic review material.

If you have any questions or need to reach out, don't hesitate to contact me at RutledK@pwcs.edu.

Thank you for your continued support and patience during this time.

Hello Parents and Guardians,

My name is Kim Rutledge and I'd like to welcome you to my
7th Grade Life Science Class Page!
I will not be posting any new work at this time. However, I will provide information about completing work assigned prior to March 13 in the Assignments section, topic review activities in the Files and Documents section, and helpful links in the Useful Links section. 

On my main page, you'll find important announcements and information about class activities. I will update my class page routinely, and as I receive directives from Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) and Potomac Middle School (PTMS) Administration. 

Please encourage your son or daughter to check my Class Page each weekday for new announcements and activities.

If you have any questions or need to reach out, don't hesitate to contact me at RutledK@pwcs.edu.

Thank you for your continued support and patience during this time.

Kind regards,
K. Rutledge
