Information

  • CAMP (Computers, Art, Music, P.E.) Rotation: Your student will come to computer class every fourth day depending on your student's CAMP rotation.

  • Email: I will always try to be as timely as possible with responding to emails, but as you might not be aware I have over 600 students, so please be patient with me! 

  • Internet Use: As part of Express Check-In you should have already signed the Student Computer/Internet Use Acknowledgement Form that needs to be signed both by yourself as a Parent/Guardian and your student, if you haven't signed this form please print, sign and return to the front office. You can find this form on page 44 of the Parent and Student Handbook.  In class, I will also be having students sign an Online Safety Pledge. In my class, we will always use Kiddle as kid safe search engine. All other sites will also be posted in the Links and Documents section.

  • Check the Links and Documents section for links to sites we will be using each week.

1st – 1st graders will be doing a Kiddle image search on Meopotamia to tie in with their homeroom lesson. They will be searching key words that they should be familiar with by the end of the lesson.
