BrainPop - A great way to prevent the summer slide

BrainPop contains carefully vetted games, simulations, and coding exercises from the world’s leading learning game designers let kids tackle complex concepts, take on different roles, collaborate, and strengthen their systems thinking skills in the game environment. Trial, error, and even failure become safe paths to learning.

Your child can access BrainPop during the summer months by going to:

  • User name is first name.last name.student number
  • Password is your child's student number

Contact Mrs. Adamic at julie@johnhancockcs.org if you have troubles accessing the program.

Thoughts for Mrs. Rogers

We are so grateful for the influence Mrs. Heeather Rogers has had on our school for the past 19 years. She has served as our second-grade teacher, third-grade teacher, fifth-grade teacher, reading specialist, and most recently as our special education director.

She has given her heart and soul to our students, parents, and her colleagues over the years.

In lieu of a retirement party, Mrs. Rogers has asked former students, parents, and colleagues to write her a note. Share your favorite memories. What thoughts would you like her to know? Write a thank you for all she has done to influence your life.

I was informed the link didn't work last week. Please try again and let her know how much you appreciate her.
