What's Happening?

Week of August 10

Dear Families,

Welcome to OIS and 6th grade Core!  I am so excited about working with you this year!  We have a lot of fun and challenging learning ahead of us, and I know the students will be successful and thrive.  Students should check Google Classroom M-F for my daily hyperdoc.  The hyperdoc directs students to assignments in google classroom and includes links to materials.  I will post a daily reminder in School Loop to check Google Classroom for all activities and assignments.  If parents would like access I am able to make them guardians.  We'll talk about this more at Back to School Night which will be a virtual presentation on Wednesday, August 19.

At the start of each week, I will publish a "week at a glance" to help everyone organize their time.  I'm not expecting instant perfection!  Part of sixth grade is learning how to manage departmentalized classes and how to be a successful student.  It is entirely appropriate for parents/guardians to help with organization this year, with the goal of transitioning to full independence by high-school, in most cases. 

I have attached a Back to School Intro to Core document on the left that answers some frequently asked questions.  After looking it over, please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or concerns.  My (virtual) classroom is always open to you.
