• Welcome to Mrs. Dilling's 4th Grade Virtual Classroom at Pine Elementary Fine Arts Magnet School
    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.  I am looking forward to having your child in my virtual classroom this school year.  This is going to be a year filled with many learning opportunities, successes, challenges, experiences, and growth for your child.  Parents play a very important role in their child's education.  Your support and guidance are greatly appreciated.  
    I feel that the classroom is a small community, so will we be working together virtually to create a positive environment.  I will be using Class Dojo as a behavior plan to monitor students as well as a way to communicate with parents.  I will be posting some virtual expectations/norms that students will need to be mindful of during Zoom meetings.
    I have posted some links to some of the useful websites that we will be using under my class information tab on my teacher website.  I will also place them in Google Classroom.  Our daily virtual sessions will be done using Zoom.  Students will be expected to join on a daily basis.  Attendance will be taken daily.
     Feel free to contact me at any time through Class Dojo, email- cdilling@mcas.k12.in.us, or 219 873-2114 ext. 6822.
    Thank you,
    Cathy Dilling
