Third Grade Newsletter : Week 20

Weather Appropriate Clothing

Weather permitting we always try to go outside for recess. That being said, it is often windy and cold when we go out. PLEASE make sure you student wears a jacket with a hood or has a hat or ear warmers to cover his or her ears. We don't want any of our kiddos getting sick from being out at recess!

eLearning / Chromebook Pilot Parent Night

Do you have questions about eLearning or want to learn more about the chromebook take-home pilot?

All CSA Lincoln parents are invited to join us on Thursday, January 14th from 6-7 p.m. in the CSA Lincoln gym. Nick Williams, BCSC Coordinator of Instructional Technology, Delaney George (3rd grade) and myself will be present to talk about the initiatives and answer your questions.

5th/6th Chromebook Pilot- CSA Lincoln is leading the way and has volunteered to be the first BCSC elementary school to pilot BCSC chromebooks going home with students. Information will be coming home on Monday, January 11th with 5/6th graders if you cannot attend the meeting. All students in grades 1st-4th will have the opportunity to take home their chromebook after the pilot program is completed. AUP forms will be coming home on Monday for 5th-6th grade students and must be turned in before they can take home a chromebook.

eLearning Day- Starting on the 6th snow day or any day after Spring Break (March 14-18), BCSC will have an eLearning Day. Students will NOT report to school on an eLearning Day, but will be completing assignments online through itslearning, BCSC’s online course management system. Logistics will be discussed at the meeting.

Please contact me if you have any further questions or concerns. All presentation materials will be uploaded to the parent newsletter if you are unable to attend.
