Grade 6 Parent Teacher Conferences

posted Dec 2, 2016, 7:24 AM by Kandy Davitt

Dear Parents/Guardians,

You have been sent an e-mail that has invited you to schedule a parent/teacher conference with your child’s teachers.  As part of our transitions to competency-based grading, grades are now open for the full school year, and we will not be creating report cards at the end of each trimester. They will be issued once at the end of the year. As the first trimester closes, please take this opportunity to review your child’s current grades on MMS. If you would like to schedule a conference, please sign up for a time and date below. If there is not a time that works for you, please let the advisor know, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

The conferences will be held at the end of the first trimester, December 5-9.

Location: Room 211

Sign out Chromebooks

posted Nov 18, 2016, 2:12 PM by Debbie Boisvert

This year we have 10 Chromebooks available for sign out through the library . If you would like to have your child use on overnight  for the weekend fill out this form and return it to the Library. Signing out a chromebook will give you an extra computer for homework, a laptop if you are going somewhere with wifi or just a chance to see how they work.

Chromebooks are very popular in schools with over 50% of the computer sales in the k-12 market. With our Bring Your Own Device program and Concord HS commitment to Chromebooks this would make a great holiday gift.

This year the 2016 Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference invites parents and teenagers to join us for a FREE showing of the award-winning documentary Screenagers, followed by questions and answers with a panel of educators and administrators. Screenagers is an hour-long documentary by physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston, who probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction.  The average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well.

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span?  Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, Screenagers reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

Light refreshments will be served.  Screenagers is appropriate for adults and teens.

Date:  Monday, November 28, 2016
Time:  6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Location: Salon A, Radisson Hotel, Manchester, NH
RSVP Direct Link:  http://tinyurl.com/CMTC16-RSVP

Parents may also RSVP for this FREE event from the conference website at www.nhcmtc.org, responses are requested by Wednesday, November 23rd.
