Welcome to Mrs. Moran's wikispaces page!

Spring Semester 2015/16

Below you will find a running overview of the semester as we go along week by week. Each class will be provided an overview of what I project to accomplish that week. In addition, the details shown in red are the assignments that will be graded along with their corresponding due dates.


All handouts and resource packets will be provided in PDF format and can be found in the menu to the left. Simply select the class you are in and the class paperwork will be added in chronological order as it's presented in class.


Reminder - assignments for most of Mrs. Moran's classes can (and are expected to as needed) be worked on outside of regular class time. Please pay attention to posted due dates and pace yourself accordingly. HELP sessions are available most days until 3:30
if you need specific additional time within the school setting.
