Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome! We are excited to get to know all of our new 7th grade students. We will be sending home a team letter and course map information for each class within the first week of school. Please take a moment to go through these class and team expectations to make this a successful year.
The Mendive supply list is the same for all teams and has been sent out to parents. Students should bring in all supplies within the first week of school to ADVISORY class for check off.
In addition, students will bring home a "Getting to Know You" sheet that will help us become better acquainted with each student and has a place to fill in a parent and student email at the bottom. Over the next few weeks, we will generate an email list for parents and students who are interested in receiving weekly updates on upcoming classwork and homework agendas in each core class (math, English, history, and science.) We have found that in combination with agendas and Infinite Campus, the team email and website is an extremely beneficial way for our team to communicate with parents and students.
Here are some reminders for the upcoming year:
1. All students should have an agenda. This agenda should be filled out daily in each class and taken home daily and to all classes. On Tuesdays in Advisory, teachers check this agenda for completion. This is the largest portion of the Advisory behavior grade. If your Advisory grade is low, that usually indicates that a student is not using the agenda as an organizational tool.
2. Our team sends out a weekly email with an update on the upcoming week's core classes: math, history, English, and science. If you are not receiving this email and would like to, please email Mrs. Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact email and you will be added to the team list.
3. Use Infinite Campus: Infinite Campus is updated weekly by all core teachers and is a record of work in class. It is the online grade book for each class. Infinite Campus can be used as an app on a smart phone or with direct log-in from the Washoe County website: www.washoeschools.net. If you do not have access to Infinite Campus, and/or need help with trouble shooting, please contact our team counselor, Ms.Harrell, located in the office or via email at email@example.com.
4. With each teacher, sign up for the REMIND code to recieve periodic text reminders on upcoming assignments and events.
Your new team teachers
