Additional Information

  • Modernization (See 2 PDF Attachments): We have created a modernization FAQ document with important dates to keep in mind and a parent-friendly modernization calendar. These were sent home before we went on break. You will also get a class set of copies to be sent home with report cards! Please remember to share these documents with your families.
  • iPad Restrictions: Did you know that we can place restrictions on your student’s devices? We can block websites, remove apps (even the camera app), and pretty much anything else you can think of! If you are interested or need any restrictions to be placed on your student’s devices, please email Heather and Roel.
  • Yellow School Pass: Please remember to use the yellow hall passes when you are sending your students out of the classroom! If you need more passes, they are kept in room 201.
  • How to Freeze an Image on Your Classroom TV: Did you know that you can freeze the screen on your TV so that it keeps the same image up? Just use the remote for your TV and press the “freeze” button to stop the screen from changing. If you do not have a freeze button on your remote, you can choose to get a universal remote that is compatible with your TV.
  • On the Blog this Week: This week’s blog post is all about the Thankful poem that shared at our last PD:
