C105 and Google Drive

Google Drive is an online file storage service where you can store your files, and folders and have access to them at any time on any device. I have set up a Google Drive for our class. To access our class Google Drive, use this link: http://tiny.cc/C105docs . You do not need a password to access the folder. Here are just some of the great things you can find in our GoogleDrive:

  • A Parent's Guide to Understanding Common Core: Language Arts
  • A Parent's Guide to Understanding Common Core: Math
  • PTA Membership Form (only $20 per person!)
  • Handwriting Practice to print and complete at home
  • First Grade Lined Paper (in the Print Me! folder)
  • Copies of all the Reading Logs we will use this year
  • Information about Head Lice
Is there something else you'd like to see there? I'm happy to add things that will help us have a great year together!

Walk and Roll

Walk and Roll is a program at our school in partnership with the Carolyn Clark PTA and the City of San Jose. This program was developed to encourage students to walk to school to improve their health and reduce congestion in our neighborhood. It is also designed to raise awareness for drivers to slow down and drive more carefully near schools. As a school, we count the number of students who walk to school on Wednesdays and Fridays. Those students who consistently walk can earn prizes for participating. Join us for Walking Wednesdays and Walking Fridays this year!
