Although PWCS is unable to provide instruction or class assignments to students while schools remain closed, our School Division hopes that the suggestions for optional learning activities posted here will help parents support student learning until schools re-open. Please remember that use of these materials and participation in these activities are optional and neither grades nor course credit will be awarded. 


Welcome to phase-4 of GVMS at home learning.  I hope that everyone is healthy and doing well.  Today you will be receiving a letter from Mrs. Porter-Lucas detailing how phase-4 will be put into place.  Each subject will be given a 90 minute block each week.  Also, all teachers will have 90 minutes of "office hours" where they will be available for virtual assistance and answering questions.  Please see Mrs. Porter-Lucas's letter for additional details.

Math will has its 90 minutes on Wednesdays from 10:00 - 11:30

My office hours will be Fridays at 1:30 - 3:00

Both instruction and office hours will be conducted through Microsoft Teams.  Students will need to login to Teams using their Office365 logins.  The link for Teams can be found in the "useful links" section of this page.  Please e-mail with any questions.  Thank you!

I Hope that everyone is healthy and doing well in this time of uncertainty. For practice to do at home during the school building closure, please go to the Work at Home section of this page.  All information, along with a suggested calendar, will be placed in this section.  Please feel free to e-mail me ( with any questions.
Stay safe everyone!
