Parents get emails with an attachment that shows a link to the homeroom and the school blog. Below that, students choose one word to begin a sentence about their day. Students will be doing doing this doing this in homeroom beginning at 3:10 PM daily but are encouraged to send an email at any point throughout the day about something they want to talk about. To open the attachments parents will need adobe reader, which can downloaded for free by clicking here.
The teacher blog will include homeroom news and events and also any homework that is due or upcoming tests. This is to keep parents aware of the day to day happenings in your child's class.
Here are a couple of examples that grade 6 students did today. In the future, students will also add images of good work they want to share or a voice recording of their day at school. To get a larger view of these images click on them.
