Throughout HISTORY, the most basic government was the family.  As families grew to clans, villages to cities, nation-states to modern countries, etc., community involvement and neighbors helping neighbors has been amplified in times of uncertainty and/or strife.  During this unprecedented and historical pause in our nation and the educational systems within, reconnect with family, help those that need it, feed your neighbors, share your resources, get your homes clean and in order.  Over a 2 week, or more, period, those skills and actions will take you beyond what x equals.  That being said, engage your minds.  Read a book, ask your parents how to write a check, balance a checkbook, calculate interest, build something, clean something, get OUTSIDE, exercise by doing, ask grandpa how to change a tire, help grandma cook, teach a younger sibling something you know that they don't, and learn to be self-reliant, if just for a short time.  

There are sites (IXL, moby max, google classroom, SOL supportive guidelines on the VDOE site organized by subject, Myon virtual library, Newsela, Read Theory) that will supplement during the absence.  If you so desire, and you are unable to get in due to password difficulties, please email tpiestrak@bedford.k12.va.us.  She should be able to get you your proper password.

Stay safe, be smart, and we will get through this all together.

4/6/2020: All students should be able to access their Edgenuity courses now.  Please log on, just as you would at school, and work within Edge.  The courses have be customized to provide the essential knowledge for completion and preparation for the courses to come next year.  I think all students will find the courses easy to navigate, and they will be able to move forward in courses without teacher review or unlocking of assignments.  If help is needed, please contact the teacher of the subject in which you are working through the Edgenuity email system.  Between personal wifi, phone service, hotspots, county provided wifi at schools and libraries, if at all possible, please try to utilize the Edgenuity program.  If none of those avenues are available, flash drives with personalized work will be sent out the week of April 20th.

4/27/2020: Please continue to work on your Edgenuity courses.  Also, flash drives for those unable to connect should be arriving soon.  If you need to contact me, please do so through Edgenuity email, county email, or connect during my office hours.  This week I am available from 9 am - 10 am.   To join my Zoom Meeting, enter:
