Mr. Sullivan

Welcome To Our Page

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all doing well in this crazy time. This home learning venture is a new thing for all of us, and I am sure there will be some bumps along the road. It is, however, a great chance for you to reconnect with your school community and classes. I can tell you that I am very excited with the possibilities. 

We are going to start slow today. There are only a few things that I would like you to try an accomplish:

1) Gain access to your student emails and the Microsoft Teams page I created for your respective classes. My previous post should have information regarding how to accomplish these tasks. Say hi once you get onto the teams page.

2) Find yourself a novel and read for 20-30 minutes. This should be a work of fiction that you have not read before. The reading should be uninterupted and free of any technology. If you do not have access to a novel here is a suggestion: 

This site offers access to free ebooks. There are quite a few classic titles and some new selections as well.


3) Get outside. It's going to be a nice day.

If you have any questions please contact me at

I will also post some lessons for the remainder of the week later today should anyone want to get started.

Mr. Sullivan
