Hash Tag Challenge Accepted!

Hash Tag Challenge

Our building has been challenged to utilize Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram) to share our MS Journey & Practices towards #BWLS2020 until Wednesday October 26th. Not only is this a great opportunity for us to Share our Story as to how we Personalize Learning, Engage Students and Grow Minds with our Students, Parents and Greater Big Walnut Community (You also could help your fearless leader win a wonderful prize from our Superintendent, you know this guy that can be fairly competitive at times). Post with #BWLS2020 & Have some fun while Sharing our Story.


MakerSpace Meal

Stop Down to the Staff Lounge Today for a special MakerSpace Meal with your Grade Level Team. The District has provided us with a MakerSpace Kit for the next month to play around with during some downtime. To kick it off, the Admin Team will provide a dessert to cap off your MakerSpace Meal today.

Check out this PROMO.


District Showcase

This year our District Showcase will be November 7th- November 11th. For those of you that are new, this is a great time for you to visit other classrooms within our wonderful Big Walnut District. The Middle School is set to have coverage on Wednesday November 9th. Also, we would love for anyone interested in showcasing your classroom to add their information on the BWMS tab in this SHARED DOCUMENT. Open up your classroom and let others see your awesome work!


SLO Feedback

SLO Feedback forms should be going in your mailbox today or you would have received comments on your Shared Google Doc. Please see Josh, Darin or Nancy with any questions.


Grades

The first 9 weeks ends on a Wednesday, 10/19 this year. Grades are due in PowerSchool by midnight Sunday 10/23. We will store grades early that week with making them live in PowerSchool at 8am on Wednesday 10/26.

Middle School Methods

I am sure many of you in the 7th grade hallway got a chance to see the Social Studies students racing around for the QR Code History Review Race. This activity got the students thinking will integrating movement and technology to further engage students. This tied right into a Tweet & Link I read this week. Thought you might enjoy as well...
