Ms. Lindsay's Letter

May 27th

Hello Homeroom Students!


Hi everyone!


Remember to focus on your DAILY PLAN each day and work your expected attendance hours. K-2 4 hours a day 3-5 5 hours a day. With this daily work your year end totals will reach k-2 goal of 720 and 3-5 goal of 900.


About this Newsletter:


I will be working on sending out a Monthly newsletter this year. I will be updating it weekly on Fridays, but only sending you the reminder email once a month.


In this Newsletter, you will find updates on what is going on at the k12 International Academy, in my homeroom, what your current progress goals are, work samples due, and much more! You can feel free to book mark this site and check back to reference it and see the updates as well!


Please always keep in mind your term # and the school year you are in. It can get a little confusing as we have 14-15 students and 15-16 students going at the same time. The topics will be noted with the year (14-15 or 15-16) that the info pertains to.


Do you want to contact me? The best way to reach me is by Skype.

icademylvandellen. Kmail is good as well or a phone call! 703.261.4081


Enjoy each day as you learn!!!!


Smiling,

Ms. Lindsay

Welcome Back to School! We are very excited to be beginning the 2015-16 School Year. There are many important things to keep in mind as you start.
