Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):The following is from our most current class newsletter. For the entire newsletter go to http://mrsinger.weebly.com. Well, we made it! We got through the WKCE testing window with minor injuries. The students did a great job during our less-than-normal schedule this week. We have a few students who need to complete a few tests here and there, but overall we are complete. As I mentioned in the conferences WKCE is in its last year here in Wisconsin. Next year we will be doing an assessment called Smarter Balance.
Last week during conferences the official progress report window opened on Skyward. I will be checking to see that all families log on and check their student’s progress so far. If any family does not check before next Friday I will be sending a note home. Please make sure you get on and check the grades. If you don’t have your username and password, you need to contact Lisa Mutter in the office.
I wanted to inform everyone of one more communication tool that I implemented into our school community to use. Along with the Remind101 text system we now have a Twitter account for the class. Go to www.twitter.com/mrsingerclass to see news and updates from the school day, etc. I am posting pictures, reminders, educational resources, etc. You can also gain access by clicking on the Twitter tab in the top right corner of our website, www.mrsinger.weebly.com. PLEASE stay connected to what we are doing in our classroom.
