Students should be checking this website/google classroom daily to ensure that their class notes are up-to-date.

They should also be checking the HW answer key each day that is posted daily.  This is a great way for each student to keep up with the material and to check in detail if their HW is correct.  This is key to a successful year.

Welcome to Mrs. Kelly's website.
I have been teaching for a total of 12 years, 7 at St.Agnes(3 years in 6th grade and 4 years in 8th grade)
I have been married for 35 wonderful years to my husband Jim.  Together we have raised 3 great daughters, Ellen(30), Emma(26), and Gwen(21).
I have lots of favorite sayings, but I think this one sums up a philosophy necessary to succeed in Algebra
"Never, never, never give up'"
Winston Churchhill
