It has been a great start to the school year so far, and I have had fun this week getting to know the students in our class. I can tell they are going to be a great group. We did a cooperative group game the first day of school, and I have never had a class do as well as they did on their first try. I was quite impressed!
Please let me know if you have any changes to the email addresses you would like classroom updates sent to.
The district just launched a new website district-wide this summer. I have begun to build our new classroom website, and the direct link is ag.sherwood.k12.or.us/teachers/kpace. You can also navigate there from the main Sherwood School District web page. Two points of interest for the classroom website are the Home Connections and Classroom Calendar. All of the Home Connections are available in .pdf format and available to print at home should your student forget his or her math homework at school. I will also use the calendar to post when homework assignments are due.
You may have heard from your student about a website that we will be using this year called Edmodo. It is a social media-like platform that is designed to be used in schools. There is information on the classroom website for parents, as well as a student code of conduct that all of the students have agreed to follow while using Edmodo. You can also view those documents by clicking on the links below:
Please remember to only use the main parking lot when dropping off your student in the mornings. I know it can become congested, but the bus lane is not for student drop-off. Thank you for following this procedure for all of our students' safety.
Student Verification Forms
Please check your student's Eagle Folder today to see if I returned your student verification form. Please check for any highlighted areas that were missed when filled out, and send back to school next week.
This week Mr. Wollmuth's weekly update is being sent home in students' Eagle Folders. If you are not already receiving e-mail updates from the school you can register your email address on the Archer Glen Website homepage http://ag.sherwood.k12.or.us/home.
Also, next Friday is Archer Glen's Brown Bag Lunch day. Families are encouraged to bring a sack lunch and join us for a picnic lunch. Our lunch starts at 11:10 am, and cafeteria lunches will still be available for those students who purchase lunch at school.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Have a great weekend!
