The students were all enrolled in the online study tool called Quizlet! The site features digital flashcards, practice tests, independent games, and group activities. Both of our humanities classes got to play Quizlet Live with the vocabulary words from the novel, Crash. The kids all had a blast. Below are a few photos for my first humanities group. I’ll make sure to remember to snap pix of my second group next time. They, too, had a BLAST.
Our first day of school is MONDAY, AUGUST 19th. Classes start at 9:15 a.m. on Mondays and at 8:05 on Tuesdays through Fridays. Students are welcome in the sixth-grade quad (blacktop area in front of portables closest to South Bay Blvd.) at 9:02 a.m. on Mondays and at 7:48 a.m. on Tuesdays through Fridays. I will also be in the quad at this time, so feel free to stop by and say hello. Please click “Business” then “Bell Schedule” at the top of this page for a complete listing of starting and dismissal times for all periods and breaks.
All students and parents of students enrolled in my humanities class and/or first STEAM rotation should have received either and/or an e-mail via ParentSquare. I will be utilizing this communication tool all year, and I encourage parents to officially log into their pre-populated ParentSquare accounts at www.parentsquare.com using the e-mail or phone number used when registering their children for school. The program also has an app for Apple and Android devices. Both the website and the app give users enhanced features and makes navigating through messages easier. Students may also install StudentSquare on their smartphones if they have one.
Our Back to School Night is Wednesday, August 28th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Parents will start the event in our multipurpose room, and then proceed to visit each of their child’s teachers. Click HERE for the official schedule.
I’m looking forward to experiencing a GREAT school year together!
