For those of you new to CA welcome, and to those of you returning welcome back. I hope everyone had a good start to the first year of Middle School. I will be the six grade parent this year and along with Polly Reddy, Shannon Crane and Kimberly Allison we will be working to keep you updated and involved with the activities and events happening this year. This is the first email of the year so it may be a little longer than future emails, please be sure to read to the bottom so you don’t miss anything important.
Emails this year will be sent out on an as needed basis instead of weekly as we were used to before. Because of this I encourage you to reach out to me if you have any questions that I can answer, or your child’s Advisor if it is a school concern. Our 6th grade lead teacher is Matthew Carter who is also available.
Mr. Carter has asked me to let you know that your child’s iPads will be coming home soon, probably this week. Also he says to feel free to check out your child’s Google Classroom. It will give you an idea of what your children are learning in class, what homework they have and how they are doing in each class.
Because I wasn’t sure of the protocol myself I thought I would pass this on. If your child is going to be out of school sick you should contact your child’s Advisor as well as Mrs. Jackson and have your child check Google Classroom for any missed work or assignments.
There is a 6th grade Twitter account where teachers will Tweet throughout the day. The address is CAgrade6. If you don’t have a Twitter account I encourage you to sign up.
Don’t forget Back to School Night is this Wednesday September 4th @ 6:45 starting in the Dining Hall.
Also our 6th Grade Community Meeting is September 24th @ 6:30.
That is all I have at this time. Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.
Note: If you have a family member or caregiver who should also receive these communications, please forward this email or have them sign up for PACA communications at http://eepurl.com/gAwsq5 They will be added to the mailing list(s) requested after submission and review by PACA.
