Dear Families,

During the second quarter, middle school students will be building on the new digital citizenship skills that they have been learning.  Students will have multiple opportunities to demonstrate these new skills during class.  Beginning coding activities will also be incorporated into the second quarter classes, as well.

Mrs. Atkinson, the Media Specialist, and I work closely with the classroom teachers to incorporate technology into the curriculum. Please remember that the students’ grades for the Media Research classes reflect media and technology as a combined grade.

Please help your student(s) remember the C-O-D-E that will lead them to success in class.

C – Come to class prepared!  Bring your charged iPad and any assignments that are due.

O – Observe – Be observant of your classmates, the classroom expectations and the learning environment.  I will be using a “Shout Out” system that students can nominate fellow students for kind, respectful actions.  Each quarter, students in each middle school class will receive a “Shout Out” from fellow students for kind and thoughtful acts!

D – Demonstrate Respect – speaking with teachers and fellow students in a respectful manner means not talking or socializing while the teacher or a fellow student is talking. Demonstrating respect also means actively listening to instruction and focusing on learning.

E – Excellent behavior – starts with an excellent attitude!  Arriving on time to class, focusing on the learning opportunities and contributing on-topic responses to class discussions.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  God bless you,

Mrs. Slater
