Hello Parents and Students,
I hope you are doing well and staying healthy! I miss all of you so much. I am sending you all a big virtual hug! XO

On Monday, April 20th, we will begin our virtual learning using "Zoom". An email and Class Dojo message will be sent the night before with the information needed for the following day's class. There will be a link that can be copied and pasted, and it will include a Meeting ID and Password (these are changed each day for security purposes). When joining the meeting, it will ask for a name. Please have your child use the name that I know them by, or I will not grant permission for them to join. My goal is to keep our class meetings secure and only open to the students in my classroom.

Our class schedule is as follows:
Mondays 10:40-11:40              Language Arts
Tuesdays 10:40-11:40             Social Studies
Wednesdays 10:40-11:40        Math
Thursdays 10:40-11:40            Science

On Fridays, I will hold my "Office Hours" from 10:40-11:40 and can be reached through Class Dojo, my email ascherdk@pwcs.edu, or by phone for immediate response to answer any questions.

All classes are optional. No new content will be taught, and assignments and activities will not be graded. If your child is not able to participate in the "Zoom" class, there will be optional assignments and activities listed on my webpage.

In order for your child to participate in "Zoom", I need to have parental permission which most of you have already given me. It is important during a "Zoom" gathering that your child:
*        Work in a quiet area
*        Wear proper attire (as they would for school)
*        Follow classroom expectations
*        Try to have paper and a pencil available

Thank you so much and I look forward to "seeing" everyone on Monday, April 20th!

~ Mrs. Donna Ascherl ~

I absolutely love my job and couldn't imagine doing anything else!!! I grew up in a small community called Carroll in Iowa and graduated from Briar Cliff University. My family includes my wonderful husband, four grown children, my son-in-law, and granddaughter. My family is very active and we love to travel. I enjoy spending time with my family/friends, as well as exercising, reading, and baking.        


My vision is to create a classroom where learning on the spot takes place, where self-confidence is built, and where personal interaction with students is nurtured.    

My mission, as an educator, is to assist students in developing a passion and skill for becoming lifelong learners.    


Independent Learning Project: Animal Trading Card

Directions: Students will use MyOn (through Clever), Worldbook Online (through Clever), Pebblego (username is neabsco and the password is school) or books at home to choose an animal to research. Students will read about the animal and complete the trading card showing what was learned. A trading card template is attached.

Science: Animal Habitats 2.5,2.7a, 2.1 Living things are part of a system (interactions between living things and the nonliving surroundings) Components of an animal’s habitat Changes in habitats Weather and seasonal changes affect the growth and behavior of living things

Social Studies: Geography 2.6a The student will develop map skills by using globes and maps of the world and the United States to locate the seven continents and the five oceans.
