If you still want to sign up with any of the teachers that your child sees, you can access the online sign-up page below. We can't wait to see all the students' costumes and talk with you about your student's progress next week. Enjoy your weekend!

Battle of the Books is underway! This will be our second year participating in this building-wide reading incentive, and we are so glad to be doing it again. The students had a blast last year! There is a note coming home today with more details about how it works. Please be sure to check that out. You can also use the following link to access the list of the 10 books we will be using in our battle come April. We can't wait!
September 26, 2017 - Chapter 1 Math Retake Tests
The Chapter 1 Math retake test will be on Monday, October 2. Students will not have to retake items that were already correct, but only those that were missed. Homeroom teachers will be holding reteach sessions during W.I.N. on Wednesday and as their own schedules allow during mornings and recesses. Please have students check with their homeroom teachers for availability for morning and recess sessions. Also, please remember that students must bring their completed planning forms and their original tests in order to retake the test on Monday.
You can find a blank copy of the planning form here: Retake Test Planning Form
September 22, 2017 - Online Tests & Google Accounts
Sometimes tests may be taken online with students' Google accounts. In this case, you will not receive a paper copy of their work or test. You will be able to find the digital copy of their test in the students' Gmail account. Please follow the instructions below to access your student Google account.
Accessing your child's Google account:
- Go to any Google App that you want to access (Gmail, Google Drive, Classroom, etc).
- When prompted, enter the student's email address:
- 25+first initial+last name+students.peotoneschools.org (for example a student in 5th grade named Nicholas Cage would have an email of email@example.com
- When prompted, enter the student's password:
- The student will need to share this with you. He/she should be aware of his/her password.
