Assignments for the Week of March 30-April 3

Parents remember this schedule is just to help you pace out the assignments for the week. It also helps to not feel like you have to spend all day working on one assignment. Your student does not have to follow this schedule absolutely and may complete assignments at whatever pace you would like. No work is being graded, but instead monitored. Your child can also be reading, writing, or practicing any skills that have been taught this year.

Please use the links found under your teacher's picture to complete your assignments.

Important Dates

Our school is closed until April 17. Beginning March 25, I will assign online work, as well as send emails to parents of assignments that can be printed for paperwork instruction at home. Students can still read books at home and write responses to the text. In addition to reading books, students can complete assignments in Read Theory, Classworks, or IXL. I am working to get Classworks assignments updated so that there are more options in the event that your child has finished his/her assignments. I will set up progress monitoring for all kids. It will be on the main screen and can be done in both Language Arts and Math on Classworks. The tab will be highlighted green. I have set up Readworks accounts for all children. See below on how to access that:

How to get students to their assignments

1. Have students go to

2. Students enter class code 4PUQQ6

3. Tell your students that their default password is 1234

Note: Students can change their passwords when they log in, and you can change student passwords on this page.



If your child does not have his/her usernames and passwords for other accounts, please email me or text me and I will send a copy of them.


An announcement will be made on or before April 17 as to if we will have school next week.







About the Teacher


My name is Brandi Arton and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Hernando Hills Elementary School.   I am originally from Chalmette, Louisiana, which is right outside of New Orleans. I graduated in 1994 with a BA in Elementary Education from Southeastern Louisiana University. 

This is year 21 of teaching for me, 13 of which have been at Hernando Hills.  I have taught in Louisiana, Arizona, North Carolina, and am so glad to be in Mississippi.  I have experience in Kindergarten through 8th grade, but always knew 3rd grade had a special place in my heart.  This is my tenth year in 3rd grade.

My husband, Ryan, and I moved to Hernando in 2005.  We have 5 wonderful children. Malorie is 20 and a Junior Cheerleader at the University of Memphis. Bret is 18 and a Freshman at Northwest Community College, Sam is 14 and in the 9th grade, and we have 6 year old twin girls, Whitney and Charlotte "Charlie", who are in 1st grade at Hernando Elementary.

Teaching in the community in which I live is very rewarding! I love Hernando Hills. The staff is wonderful, and we have great students.  I believe in the mission of Hernando Hills: "NO EXCUSES,  JUST EXCELLENCE".  I look forward to working with you to help your child achieve this goal. 

Please do not ever hesitate to call or email me for any reason. I hope to work closely with you this year to make this a fun learning experience for your child.
