Good luck to all CAP students who are performing in Seussical Jr this weekend! Break a leg!!
PARENT SCHOOLOGY ACCESS
Previously, I had encouraged you to sign on using your child's account, but please discontinue that practice. After discussing this with other teachers on Schoology we are concerned about the lack of confidentiality for the students. By creating your own account you will have access to all the content your child has at school as well as the ability to look at all their assignments, discussions, groups, etc. The only difference is that now instead of being able to see all the other students activity in the class the names will be blocked out and you will only see "anonymous."
A goal for next year is to have more parents receive access codes so we could also offer parent courses and use for more communication between home and school. We are not there yet though so for this year you can use your account to see what Schoology offers your child.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please reach out. I'm very open to feedback from you, as parents, about how you see this program working for your child and the schools in our district!
Next up in ELA...
The Harlem Renaissance!
What's Happening in Math?
The goal is to wrap up our fraction frenzy before spring break and then jump into some algebra units!
In 5th grade, we just finished a unit on Volume and are now beginning a decimal unit during RtI as these are 5th grade math standards only.
