Welcome to Remote/ Distance Learning

Hello students and parents! First let me take a moment to thank you for your support during this transition to distance learning. While this is not the ideal scenario for the end of our school year, the health and safety of our children and community is always our top priority.

Starting today, we will begin to move through the next few weeks of school by utilizing remote learning through Google Classroom. Please ensure students can log on to the appropriate class. We have used Google Classroom throughout the course of the school year. They should be able to log in using their school email and password. Additionally, I sent a parent invite for parents to join the class to monitor what is being assigned. If you have any concerns or are unable to access, please let me know via email as soon as possible! Thru Google Classroom, we will continue to supplement activities with various technology applications, all of which are free and accessible through websites or apps on smart devices. Many different devices are able to access Google Classroom including PlayStation and X Box. If your student is having difficulty accessing the Google Classroom for any reason, just me know so I can work to resolve the issues and problems we may encounter.

I will continue to be able to be reached through email throughout the day. I have designated office hours on Thursday between 2:30- 3:00. I will always be available to email or chat in Google Classroom during this time frame. Of course your student can always email a question at any time, I will try to respond in a timely manner.

I am really looking forward to hearing from all of you and finishing our year strong! Please continue to stay safe.

Coach Dean's 8th Math Class Update

As you are aware, the district has announced that normal district operations, which include the children attending school in the building, are suspended through April 10, with a projected resumption date of April 13.  As your student’s math teacher and a member of the math team here at Tomball Junior High School, I want to share current information: 

Firstly, We are so very grateful that all our staff and students are healthy and loved.  While the choice to suspend school might seem unprecedented, we must realize that the decision is rooted in compassion and a desire to protect the families in our precious learning community.  We are deeply thankful for health. 

Secondly, please know that communication is rightly being handled by the district to prevent confusion.  Therefore, I learn information at the exact time that you do. This is so important to remember because our answer to many questions will likely be, “I don’t know.”  I will support you as much as I possibly can, but responses may feel somewhat slower as we all await unified, district information. We are not being intentionally insensitive or vague, but rather we want to ensure that the information you do receive is accurate. 

Thirdly, all the teachers here at Tomball Junior High and in TISD are deeply dedicated to student learning, and we love teaching!  Therefore, we are all excited to use Google Classroom to engage students and extend their learning in new ways. All my current students are enrolled in Google Classroom and we have used it at various times throughout the school year. Please let us know if your student does not have access to a device. Very soon we will share with you some resources to begin this journey. 


Warm regards,

Lee Dean and the TJHS Math Team
