We are looking for Guest Speakers to visit our Discover students! Parents: Do you have a job in science, math, history, literature or technology? Would you be willing to come share your wisdom with our students? If so, please fill out this form and we'll contact you! Thank you in advance for helping our students make connections between what they are learning in the classroom and what you are doing in the community!
Welcome to our class website! On this site you will find what we do in class each day and our daily homework assignments. This is the same information that I post on the board each day in the classroom.
Students: Look at the column on the left of this page to find your class. You will see the Daily Agendas and Homework for our class.
If you are absent, your Class Tab to the left is your first stop. It is your responsibility to make up the work - I will not hunt you down to remind you of what you missed! Your conversation upon returning to class from any absence should start with "I saw on our class website that we learned _____________ while I was out." I will then provide you with any notes or handouts you need to complete your make-up work. This conversation should happen before or after class. Do not wait until class has started to ask about work you missed.
Parents and Students: Please bookmark this site so that you may easily and frequently return to view class assignments, upcoming test and due dates, homework assignments, and more. I believe that education is most effective when there is an active partnership between the students, parents, and the school. I encourage regular communication and discussion through updates made on this website, posting of grades on Q, and communication with home via e-mail correspondences, phone conversations, and parent/student/teacher meetings. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Due to confidentiality issues, I am unable to take phone calls regarding students while I'm teaching so email is the best way to reach me. Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm looking forward to a wonderful school year!
