    Dear Parents and Students,

        Welcome back to the new school year! My name is Ceridwen Ruegner (Ms. C) and I am excited about having you in my classroom! My classroom is at Knapp Elementary School, Room 105.  I will be joined by my 2 paraprofessionals this year, Mrs. Mitzel and Miss Hunt.

         Information will be available on my website as well as I will be sending emails out. To access my website go to mcas.k12.in.us. Go to schools and click on Knapp. Once on the Knapp page, go to teacher pages. Click on Pre-K, Ms. C. On the webpage you will find supplies, daily schedule, and many other things.

        Attached will be the daily schedule. This schedule will be updated as needed. If your child has speech, OT, or PT. These services will be built into one of the sections during the day. When these times and days have been decided I will update the schedule and I will send another schedule.

        We will be using Zoom for class time. We will use the same link each day for the classes.   If this does not work I will change it and let each of you know the new link.

    Join Zoom Meeting


    We will stay on Zoom the entire time. Student will have breaks throughout the sessions. I will remain on the program the entire time if there are any questions or needs. If for some reason my camera and microphone is off, please just say something and I will pop on.

       We will also be using Seesaw to work on homework and our skills. I am still in the process of getting all students on the program. Once this is complete I will let you know the information for the site and more information as needed.

        I also know that we are waiting on student devices to come in. If you are able to get them on the Zoom classroom chats on a different device, this would be great. If you are not able to do not worry about it. We will get everyone caught back up when everyone has a device.  As I receive more information I will pass that on to all of you.

        I know this school year is starting off different that we have in the past. We will all work through these issues and get there. We are going to have a Rock Star Year!!

        I am anxious and excited to get to know each of you! If you have questions at any time, please contact me. cruegner@mcas.k12.in.us   873-2096, ext. 6444.
