Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
Good day everyone! I hope your week went well, and you were able to stay dry. We have been busy this week at school. We had a lot of new knowledge shared by our very responsible and courteous sixth grade students in this class.
One final reminder; conferences will be next week. During the conferences the students’ will be giving a presentation to all of you for half of the time. They are preparing a portfolio presentation where they will share two artifacts and goals so far this year. The second half of the conferences will be used to cover any burning issues you shared on the blue survey, discuss the MAPs testing, discuss SKYWARD, and any other items you might have.
On Thursday, October 25th school is over early. Conferences start at 1:00 that day. The following day, Friday, we are off of school too. For all major dates of interest please go to the website and check out the calendar page.
If possible please make sure to go on Skyward before conferences to get good background knowledge of your student’s academic progress so far. Yesterday I checked and already 14 of our 21 families have had at least one login on Skyward this year. AND out of the 14, 12 of them have been this month. Thank you very much for staying informed.
If you are interested in any other information, please peruse the website and enjoy. Our class rules, pictures from the year, and much more can be found. If you ever have any questions, or comments, please email me!
