The 6 Pillars of Character
Just a reminder that students in grades 4th-8th grade are required to bring a flash drive to class every time they attend class. All assignments are graded on their flash drives. Students in grades 2nd-8th are required to bring their Kinzie planner so they can copy down websites we use in class. Finally, headphones are recommended for all grades, and can be left in my classroom.

Did You Know?
Now more than ever students need to be familiar with how to operate the functions of a computer. Below are great sites with educational value that can help students become familiar with various computer functions.
Please continue to check the web address to make sure your child stays on the educational site. If a pop-up ad is clicked it could take your child to a site that does not have any educational value, or a site that inappropriate. Parental monitoring is needed any time a child is on the computer.

Check These Out!
The rest of the computer games are grouped according to grade level. All of the games are fantastic for learning. Don't forget to visit the typing sites!
Google: Mt Vernon Computer Lab and check out the grade level games. I really enjoy this site too.
Finally, keep a small notebook near the computer and keep a journal of sites that have educational value.
