    Hi! My name is Pat Gibson. I am very excited about working with your child this year in the 'virtual" READ180 program. If you need to cntact me, please email or phone 771-7002. I will return your email or phone call as soon as possible. Thank you :)

    Welcome to the READ 180 program.

    It is a pleasure working with your child as he/she works toward becoming a successful reader. In the READ 180 program, the differentiated instruction provided by computer will allow your child to work on the skills he/she needs as well as building skills during small group instruction and independent reading time. Please read with your child or encourage him/her to pick up a book for enjoyment. The READ 180 program is aligned with the ELA Standards for Georgia. 

    • The entire county will be using REMIND this year. Remind should have sent you a confirmation or "claim account" message. This will automatically sign you up.
    • I am using Google Classroom with my students this year. Parents, if you need to know how Google Classroom works, please view the Parents' Guide to Google Classroom on our school's main webpage. 
    • After school tutoring is available as needed. Please make arrangements for a google meet.
    • Office Hours are Wednesday 1:30-3:30 Done via google meet. Additional office hours are available between class periods. Please email me for a time to meet, if needed.
