Every year the Assumption School fifth graders participate in the Living Museum where they highlight famous United States “heroes” and their contributions to society.    It has always been a dramatic presentation that parents and the entire school community enjoy.  This year we are very grateful to Mrs. Sopira who helped our fifth grade class make the Living Museum “come to life” virtually.  Once again, our students did an amazing job showcasing these fine individuals and their contributions to society.  Thank you to Mrs. Sopira, our fifth graders, and their parents for an amazing show.  Please contact Mrs. Sopira at ssopira@assumptionnj.org to request viewing a video. Enjoy!!!

  • Sign into Homeroom Meet every morning on time by 8 am. This is when attendance will be taken. If you are not on the Homeroom Meet you will be marked absent.
  • Sign into all Meets on time. If you sign in late, you will miss important directions and the homework check. It is also distracting to the rest of the class.
  • Please attend every Meet. These are your classes. They are not optional.
  • When you are on a Meet, please mute your microphone unless you are called on to answer/ask a question. When called upon, quickly unmute your microphone and answer promptly. Practice unmuting quickly. We are wasting lots of time waiting for responses.
  • When you are in a Meet, it is like you are in the classroom. Please sit on a straight back chair at your workstation and have everything you need for that class close at hand. (Please no lounging on furniture.)
  • Please do not eat while in a classroom meet. We have snack and lunch times in the schedule for that.
  • Do not have any other devices near you. Pay strict attention to everything that is going on in the class. Ask questions if you have them. Work in a quiet area of your home.
  • Keep your camera on you at all times (not the ceiling, not the wall). We need to see that you are in the class and that you are paying attention and engaged.
  • Do not use the chat feature unless advised by the teacher.
  • Follow your remote schedule and take the appropriate snack and lunch breaks where indicated. Please use the restroom during these break times and not during class time.
  • You must wear your school uniform on camera unless otherwise noted.
  • You will be removed from a meet at the teacher’s discretion if you are misbehaving and not following the guidelines.
  • While working remotely, all work must be completed and turned in by the due date. Failure to do so will result in a “0”!
  • If your camera continues to freeze, let your parents know immediately. Your internet may need to be adjusted.
  • Please make sure your device is working properly.   If you are having any tech issues, please have your parents call our Hotline # 973-753-1311.
