Bonjour mes eleves!                                    UPDATE on 05/04/2020

Hello dear Students, 

This week we will all be moving to Canvas - you will need to log into your office 365 PWCS account. You will be able to access this weeks online work activities on Canvas. 

Please watch this video to learn how to use Canvas first.

        Dear Students and Parent/Guardians,

Parkside Middle School will begin a transition to Canvas, a student learning management system, beginning on Monday, May 4th.  Canvas will allow students to access each of their unique set of classes and find their course content in one location.  Canvas Student Apps can be downloaded by clicking the following links: download for Apple, download for Android.  Parent and student resources, as well as direct links to the Canvas webpage, can be found on the PWCS Instructional Technology page by clicking here.  While we at Parkside are excited about using Canvas, we understand that it will be a learning process for teachers, students, and families.  We are here to help and excited to learn and grow together!

Canvas permitirá a los estudiantes acceder a cada una de sus clases  y encontrar el contenido de su curso en una ubicación. Las aplicaciones para estudiantes de Canvas se pueden descargar haciendo clic en los siguientes enlaces: descargar para Apple, descargar para Android.

      I hope everyone is doing well. These are difficult times and now, the most important thing is to be safe and in good health.I will be here to maintain a line of communication with you if needed.
     I hope you had a nice Spring Break  and enjoyed your time off  from E-learning. This week we are back at it and going to keep working on turning in work and doing some work online.The grading period has been extended till next Friday April 24. So grades are due right after that so NO missing work or pips will be accepted after that. Many of you are already on track and have completed missing assignments and retakes. I would like to hear from some of you so you can get your grades up. 
 I will post updated information on this page in order to provide additional support and to continue to master the learning skills. 

Please check the folder " Virtual Learning". I will post new materials using the folder " Weekly updates", where you are going to have documents based on your grade level. We will use Edpuzzle  starting this week. The information will be also uploaded on Teams and sent to your school email. Please check them out! 

Also, you can post something fun in French or just say" bonjour" on our World Language Instagram page: pkmswl

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me by email me at hirtieg@ 

 Please see also the calendar for weekly updated and the learning standards.

Thank you/ Merci beaucoup!

Ms. Gabriela Hirtie
