Welcome students and families of B2-A! . I am excited to work with you and your child for the 2017-2018 school year! Like I mentioned earlier, I’m looking forward to a fantastic year with your child. It is my focus to prepare your child with the necessary skills to be successful at the middle school. I will expect a lot, I will be patient, I will help as much as I can, but at the same time I want them to learn from their experiences while exemplifying the TRRFCC character traits.
I believe that communication is important to helping your child become a successful learner. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions/concerns through email, firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 627-7300 ext. 241, or by writing in your child’s school planner. I will be happy to answer any questions and work with you to the best of my ability. I'm looking forward to an amazing 2017-1018 school year filled with fun, adventure, and opportunity! Our school-wide focus this year is to be "Critical Thinkers in Action" so with that being said, hold on and get ready as together we do our detective work to successfully solve all problems!
SEESAW: DIGITAL PORTFOLIO
As we start the new school year, we are excited to be exploring this new method of documenting and sharing student progress and performance using digital tools. Our class has selected Seesaw as our platform to showcase their digital portfolios. Our students are eager to receive feedback to help guide them on their learning journey.
The following are some tips on how to share your thoughts as you explore you child's journey in fifth grade.
- Be constructive! Learning a new skill is hard and we need your help.
- Specific comments are best. Think about how you can add to the learning conversation with any of your ideas.
- In a group or "everyone" post, please remember your comment is shared with everyone tagged- students and their parents. This is a great opportunity to lift up the whole class.
If you have any questions or comments, please message me. I am excited for all that your child will share with you this year through SeeSaw. Can't wait to share all of our detective work with you through the use of our digital portfolios!
