Week in Review 5/25- 5/29 *6th Grade*

I'm glad so many families took advantage of the Summer Book Bag opportunity. The book bags will be filled next week (Tuesday??).

Our protagonists from The Wright 3 are now in the Japanese garden in Chicago (see above photo) and will move into the dark and dangerous condemned Robie House. We would really appreciate any family that can fly us in your private jet to get us to the real Robie House while we work through the exciting conclusion. : )

Please send grocery or cloth bags next week for locker clean out. My homeroom students have been great about cleaning their lockers each Friday, so their load to carry home next Thursday won't be quite so big, but some of the other students . . .

Tuesday will be Track and Field and Swimming day, weather permitting, for all the students in good standing for completed homework and behavior. We're looking forward to being outside all day (send sunscreen!!!) and being with the 5th graders, soon to be next year's 6th graders!

Week in Review 5/25/15 - 5/29/15 *7th Grade*

It's a race to the finish!! But the finish isn't here yet, so keep the academic stamina and attendance strong. Next week we'll have our cumulative word root study quiz on the fourth quarter terms. We'll finish up the goal sheets we began at the beginning of the semester. Some readers have met the goals they set for themselves. Wahoo!! It takes dedication and action to meet goals, so I'm proud of my students that persevered made their expectations come true.


A "good" problem that I have is losing several books over the school year. As you do your spring cleaning, please be on the lookout for books that have LMS READING on the side and/or cover. Many of my novels have walked away and not returned home. There is no fine for late books, just appreciation that another reader will get to enjoy them next year.

There are many resources to be used for success at LMS.

If you need a calendar of today's homework, try the Remind site or the school's website.

If you would like to see books,the LMS library catalog is on the school's website under the student tab. The Schreiner Memorial Library (Lancaster's public library) has a website that gives lots of information on their collection, the Southwest Wisconsin Library System collection, the library hours & events and a link to Overdrive for the online collection.


If you need to contact a LMS staff member, look in the staff directory of the school's website.



As part of my attempt to use more technology and to add another way to give an opportunity for student success, I have joined other staff members in using the website Remind. It will give you the homework for the day on your phone or computer. Each student was given a handout with the ways to log on to my page of the Remind website.

Option #1 - Download the Remind app. (it's free) Enter class code @2f5bb for 7th grade students. Enter @02507 for 6th grade students.

Option #2 - Use this link: www.remind.com

Option #2 - phone number 510-292-4948 then the 7th grade class code is @2f5bb and the 6th grade code is @02507

I would appreciate feedback on your use with the Remind site.
