Hello HMS 7th Grade Art Parents and Students!

I hope this note finds you well. The purpose of this note is to let you know the way I am communicating with your 7th Grade Art student during our school closure.

While I am disappointed we need to move our classroom online, I am happy we will continue your child’s 7th grade art education online during the school building closure. Online, you can expect your child will continue to learn about, talk about, and make art!

Beginning Thursday, March 19th, I will communicate with your child through the Microsoft Teams platform. I will use Teams to deliver instruction, post assignments, interact with your child, and collect assignments. 

To access Microsoft Teams, your child should first login to their Clever.com account. Once in their unique Clever account, your child will find all of their classes, including Art. 

If your child should need help with login please email me with questions at losmith@helenaschools.org. I will be able to direct you to the right person to get help. When emailing me please put your child’s name and class period in the subject line so I can assist you more quickly.

Thank you for your patience, for all you do, and for partnering with me in this adventure! Be well, be patient with others, and be safe. 

Sincerely,
Mrs. Lori J. Smith
