Back into the swing of things!

We are already half way through January! Crazy how time flies. I have set some New Year's Goals for myself. #1 is to drink less pop! #2 is to run 3 times a week. So far I am doing well and hope to achieve these goals in 2014! I will keep you posted.

I hope you have been staying warm these past few weeks. I am sure we are all ready for a warm up and happy to get outside for a bit!

I have already met with a few of you already for Quarter 2 Conferences. It has been so nice to connect and see how everything is going for you in school. Remember the end of the Quarter is January 24th and I want to make sure I connect with each of you for a conference. If we have not scheduled a time yet, please reach out.

Here's to a wonderful year together!

End Of Quarter Reminder

January 24th is the last day of the quarter. I will be entering all grades using assignments and OLS Assessments for grading reference. Also there is a section of the report card that grades on participation in Reading Eggs and Class Connect Sessions. The Physical Education course will be graded as well. Missing attendance days or days where no work has been completed will be entered as absent into attendance. If you need help entering attendance or progress into the OLS please reach out! I look forward to going over all of this in our Quarter 2 Conference before January 24th.
