Mrs. Gwen Scott
About: I have been a parishioner of SMA for 30+ years. Both my daughter and son attended SMA. My passion is teaching and my hobbies include gardening and painting. I love spending time with family and friends, being a “tourist in my own city”, and beach time! What I love most about SMA is the strong, supportive community atmosphere where daily interaction is rooted in our Catholic faith. I find it exciting to work within this dynamic environment where both teachers and students are encouraged to become lifelong learners.
Education: I attended both UNO & Holy Cross College and earned a Bachelor of Science degree from UNO.
I have been teaching for 11 years, the last 9 years here at SMA.

Needed materials for pick up tomorrow
Stacked on each student's desk are texts, packets, & whiteboards they will need to work with this coming week and throughout the closure. As communicated by Mr. Bonura in an earlier email:
The school building will be open on Monday (tomorrow) between 9:00-11:00 am for you to pick up all needed supplies that were not sent home last Friday.
All students must have these materials in order to participate in the online lessons I will have prepared for them. They will need the hard copy reading texts in order to see me teaching on-line. Many did not bring them home. Some left their social studies books, green &/or pink folders, and pencil pouches in their desks.
In addition to those things forgotten, there are new materials that have been added to each desktop that will be needed to fully participate next week. There is also the Communion banner kit that was not given out to my students last week! This means every student has something to pick up from their desktop - some more than others.
Again, it is essential that they retrieve these items tomorrow in order to make this transition a smooth one. If you do not have Expo markers at home, they will have to find theirs and add to the items atop their desk!
Please, check your emails daily and our classroom page for all new notifications, postings, and announcements. Tomorrow I will send an email with a more detailed idea of what our days will look like in the upcoming weeks. I do have my folder with student passwords and will give that info out as well.
