News from Principal Karmazin

Good afternoon Bryan Middle School Families,

This week was staff appreciation week. I count myself lucky to work with the amazing staff at Bryan Middle School. Each staff member is dedicated to helping each student be successful. With that, I also want to thank each of you for allowing us the opportunity to teach your students. As we look forward to the 2021-22 school year, we will be sharing more opportunities for parents and guardians to be involved at Bryan Middle School.


It is hard to believe that in 2 ½ weeks the school year will be done. This has been one of the most unique years of learning, but we are proud of how the Bears of Bryan Middle School have persevered. As we finish up this school year, we will need to start collecting items from our remote and in person learners. Next week, we will share procedures for turning in iPads, keyboards, headsets, library books, and classroom books/materials. In-person learners will turn these in during the school day. Remote learners will have set days and times to drop items off, starting on Monday, May 17. Take this opportunity to look around your home for any OPS materials, including items from last school year, and gather them for return to Bryan Middle School.


Thank you,

Andrew Karmazin

Principal


Buenas tardes Familias de Bryan Middle School, Esta semana fue la semana de agradecimiento al personal. Me considero afortunado de trabajar con el increíble personal de Bryan Middle School. Cada miembro del personal está dedicado a ayudar a cada estudiante a tener éxito. Con eso, también quiero agradecer a cada uno de ustedes por darnos la oportunidad de enseñar a sus estudiantes. Mientras esperamos el año escolar 2021-22, compartiremos más oportunidades para que los padres y tutores participen en Bryan Middle School.


Es difícil creer que en 2 ½ semanas se terminará el año escolar. Este ha sido uno de los años de aprendizaje más singulares, pero estamos orgullosos de cómo los Bears of Bryan Middle School han perseverado. A medida que terminemos este año escolar, tendremos que comenzar a recolectar artículos de nuestros estudiantes remotos y en persona. La próxima semana, compartiremos los procedimientos para entregar iPads, teclados, audífonos, libros de la biblioteca y libros / materiales para el salón de clases. Los estudiantes en persona los entregarán durante el día escolar. Los aprendices remotos habrán establecido días y horas para dejar los artículos, a partir del lunes 17 de mayo. Aproveche esta oportunidad para buscar en su casa cualquier material de OPS, incluidos los artículos del año escolar pasado, y recójalo para devolverlo a Bryan Middle School.


Gracias,

Andrew Karmazin

Khan Math Academy Resources - Part of Math Grade Every Semester

This year, Omaha Public Schools has partnered with Khan Academy to provide an incredible math resource for middle school and high school grade-level math courses. The points below summarize your student’s role in this exciting district partnership with Khan Academy.

▪ Students engage in Khan Course Mastery to strengthen skills from current and previous grade levels.

▪ Students work on Khan Course Mastery on their own time and at their own pace. A minimum of 30 – 60 minutes per week is expected.

▪ Students will earn a summative grade each semester for their work towards skill mastery according to a district provided rubric.

▪ Students can access Khan Academy Course Mastery on any device with internet connection, such as laptops, iPads, and cell phones.

▪ Students who use Khan Academy for 30 minutes a week are more than twice as likely to meet grade-level math standards per Khan research.

▪ Students advance through Khan Course Mastery by correctly answering questions in mastery challenges, unit tests, skill quizzes, and/or individual skill practice. Videos and hints are immediately available to assist, clarify, and explain.


Teachers will encourage progress and will help with goal setting and provide feedback on their progress in Khan Course Mastery every two weeks. Your encouragement as the parent/guardian is also vital as we all work together to increase students’ confidence and progress in their mathematics learning.


Este año, las Escuelas Públicas de Omaha se han asociado con Khan Academy para proporcionar un recurso matemático increíble para los cursos de matemáticas de nivel de grado de la escuela intermedia y secundaria. Los puntos a continuación resumen el papel de su estudiante en esta emocionante asociación del distrito con Khan Academy.

▪ Los estudiantes participan en el dominio del curso Khan para fortalecer las habilidades de los niveles de grado actuales y anteriores.

▪ Los estudiantes trabajan en el dominio del curso Khan en su propio tiempo y a su propio ritmo. Se espera un mínimo de 30 a 60 minutos por semana.

▪ Los estudiantes obtendrán una calificación acumulativa cada semestre por su trabajo hacia el dominio de habilidades de acuerdo con una rúbrica proporcionada por el distrito.

▪ Los estudiantes pueden acceder a Khan Academy Course Mastery en cualquier dispositivo con conexión a Internet, como computadoras portátiles, iPads y teléfonos celulares.

▪ Los estudiantes que usan Khan Academy durante 30 minutos a la semana tienen más del doble de probabilidades de cumplir con los estándares de matemáticas de nivel de grado según la investigación de Khan.

▪ Los estudiantes avanzan a través del dominio del curso Khan respondiendo correctamente las preguntas en los desafíos de dominio, pruebas de unidad, pruebas de habilidades y / o práctica de habilidades individuales. Los videos y las sugerencias están disponibles de inmediato para ayudar, aclarar y explicar.


Los maestros fomentarán el progreso y ayudarán con el establecimiento de metas y proporcionarán comentarios sobre su progreso en Khan Course Mastery cada dos semanas. Su aliento como padre / tutor también es vital, ya que todos trabajamos juntos para aumentar la confianza y el progreso de los estudiantes en su aprendizaje de matemáticas.

Attendance

We are almost at the end of the school year. Now is the time to keep focused on attending school every day. Make attending school a priority and set a goal to have one or fewer absences during the month of May!


Estamos casi al final del año escolar. Ahora es el momento de concentrarse en asistir a la escuela todos los días. Haga que asistir a la escuela sea una prioridad y establezca la meta de tener una o menos ausencias durante el mes de mayo.
