Team Delta Announcements:
Trimester 1 Ends: Friday, December 8, 2023.
KRMS Band and Chorus: Great performance - thanks and congratulations!
Robotics: Tuesdays & Thursdays. Be sure to sign-up for the late bus if you need it!
Homework Club: Wednesdays
ChromeBooks: Students should charge each night to be ready for the school day. We suggest keeping the chargers at home and charging while sleeping. Each student is responsible for maintaining the school's ChromeBook, charger and protective sleeve. Thank you!
Water only at school, please! Plain water will keep you hydrated throughout the day. Please keep other beverages at home. Thank you! Also, reusable water bottles with a screw top only, please! No sharing water bottles.
Agenda Book: Record your assignments daily in the agenda, and then use the agenda each night as a "to do" check list. Get in this habit on the very first day!
ChromeBooks: Get a routine to charge each night.
Phones: Must be turned-off (at least the sound!) and kept in lockers during school hours.
Snacks: Students might be allowed to have a snack during independent work time with permission. We ask that snacks are quiet and easy to manage in a classroom setting, and small portions. Students do not share snacks or water bottles in class.
Ways to support your student in middle school - Help/encourage them to take charge of these:
Create a study zone at home - some place your student has school materials and space to spread-out books, journals and the ChromeBook.
Establish a routine to complete homework each night - a predictable schedule for each day
Use the agenda book as a check list. Students should plan what assignments will be completed when based of their school schedule and their after-school schedule. Help them prioritize - start with the most difficult so they have the most energy with the tough tasks.
Establish a routine to charge the ChromeBook each night and have it packed and ready to go for the next morning.
Get to bed early! These students are busy and need quite a bit of sleep to keep up with their schedules and growth spurts.
Update/replenish the tool kit with pencils, colored pencils, glue sticks, hand-held pencil sharpener, high lighter.
Organize binders/journals. Put loose papers into the binder in the appropriate sections.
