Yo Ho! It looks like we are finally up and running. My intention with this blog is to give you updated information as quickly as possible. I know some of the children are very good at relaying information, while others are not. I will use this blog, the student planners, the text messaging system MyConnect, and good ol’ fashioned letters to communicate with you. Watch for any updates on the blog to happen on Wednesdays.
Please take the time to sign up for the MyConnect text messaging system for our class, as well as Roosevelt’s, if you haven’t done so. It is the most reliable, and quickest way, to get information out to you about anything happening at the school. If you need the information again, I would be happy to give it to you.
Take a minute to review all of the tabs at the top of the screen as well as the links along the side. The standards links are the standards we use in our 3rd grade curriculum. The My Portal link is how you can get on to the “portal”. This is where you can preview your student’s grades, look up their lunch account balance, re-register for school the next year, and preview the scores of your child’s state tests. Handy links back to the school’s website and to Weber School District’s site are included as well. If you read this, put a star on your child’s next homework assignment and they may get a special surprise.
We are off to a great start to the school year! We’ve been busy getting to know each other as well as learning our procedures. Our first full learning week was a success. Your students are such a delight to work with and I look forward to the rest of the year!
