the month of may
The thing that a lot of us forget is that we were once in middle school and were just excited as our students will be for this month. Our job is to remain steady - like a duck - swimming feverishly below the surface to finish the job, but displaying nothing but calmness to everyone around to provide peace and serenity to our crazy world!
Stay consistent with your classroom behavior log - this will be a trying month for some as you have grown tired of the behaviors you may have allowed throughout the year. Keep them busy and engaged. Although we are cutting off grades in a few short weeks, there is still plenty of time for students who are failing or in danger of failing to have a chance to bring those grades up.
Let us know when you need us...we have to continue to work together as a team! We can finish strong together!
Upcoming Canvas Training
On Fridays, May 6th and May 13th, Jeff and Leslie will be here to help you begin to build your first unit of the 2016-2017 school year in Canvas. This will be set up so that this information will not be lost over the summer.
Begin to think about what electronic resources you will need to bring with you that day. If you have questions, please see Mrs. Burford!
