  • Updates & Reminders

    • Mr. Newcomer sent an email to all families explaining our new procedure for lessons and activities.  Teachers will only be assigning activities for 4 days a week (Tuesday-Friday).  Tuesdays and Thursdays are dedicated to  English Language Arts and Social Studies and Wednesdays and Fridays are dedicated to Math and Science.  Nothing will be assigned on Mondays.  I will, however, post a list of optional activities that you may use if you would still like your child to be working on Mondays.  
    • I will still post all assignments for the week on Monday.  Students can chose to complete them on the assigned day, or work ahead.  
    • The Khan goal for the end of the 4th 9 weeks is to be at 100%.  (This is now a goal, not a requirement)  
    • The reading counts goal for the end of the 4th 9 weeks is to read and pass quizzes on 6 chapter books.  In addition to that, I will be teaching the students how to create a movie trailer for one of their books. (This is now a goal, not a requirement)
