Quarter 2 Unit: Modern Technology

Parent Letter

9/25 Announcements

PowerSchool is updated. If there is an error, please have your student email me about the error (discuss appropriate email etiquette). Please have them bring the paper to me for regrading/correction. If they do not have the original paper, then they need to check the returned papers stack and no names pile. The time to correct grades is now. Once they are finalized at the end of the quarter, then changes will not be made. This quarter ends the Friday before fall break (2 weeks). All work/grades must be finalized with the teacher by Fri., Oct. 7. You may not see the changes in PowerSchool until after fall break (the teacher's deadline to have grades completed). Please encourage students to work with their teachers to make corrections or answer your questions. This is great practice for taking responsibility for their own work.

We are doing a BIG writing project this week. A grade will be taken daily on the task of the day. The final product will count as a test grade. Please avoid missing class.

Benchmarks begin this Thursday and will continue through to next Wednesday. Please avoid being absent during benchmarks.

Keep your child reading! We are participating in the 40-book challenge. Several students are about to cross the 10-book mark. There are still a few students who have not completed one book yet. Please make sure they are reading each night (drive time, waiting times for others, focused reading times). I encourage the adults to take part too!

I am encouraging students to write book reviews for the school's newspaper. The reviews can also be posted on my teacher page on this site. These will need to be completed at home and can be submitted to me at [email protected]

PowerSchool letters

PowerSchool letters were given to students today to bring home (8/24). Please ask your students for the letter. PowerSchool is the application we use for communicating grades with parents. Make sure you check grades regularly. Many teachers add comments to the assignment notes, so please check on notations for more information. Please give teachers a week to update grades. Also, sometimes teachers put assignments in before they are due. Please make sure you check due dates if your student has a blank for a grade. It may be that it just is not due yet. ;-)

Picture Day: Thursday, Sept. 8
