WEEKLY UPDATE

Parents and Students,

Happy Monday.  As we enter the final week before the Thanksgiving break, I would like to remind/encourage you to monitor your child’s academic progress in my class as well as in all of his classes.  While participation in all of my classes is great, dressing out continues to be a problem in some of my classes.  We will continue our unit on FITNESS and BASKETBALL this week.  I hope everyone has a great week as well as a great Thanksgiving break.

Respectfully,

Derek Cook

CORRECTION

Parents and Students,

I mistakenly read the wrong week in my lesson plans and posted incorrect information earlier this week.  We will continue our Fitness and Basketball Unit next week and it will take us all the way to Thanksgiving Break.  I apologize for any confusion.  Please continue to dress out and participate in these activities daily in order to do well in this class.

Thank you,

WEEKLY UPDATE

Parents and Students,

Good afternoon. I hope everyone is doing well. As you know, Tuesday is a student holiday. We are finishing up our unit on FITNESS and BASKETBALL this week. Please remind your student to dress out as I am seeing a high volume of students that are not dressed out daily. This is negatively impacting grades. Please go into SYNERGY weekly to monitor your child’s progress so that you can address any issues before they get out of control. While students still participate when they are not dressed out and earn those points, the dressing out points are just as significant. Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.

 

Thank you kindly,

FITNESS and BASKETBALL UNIT CONTINUED

Parents,

Good afternoon.  Next week we will continue our Unit on Fitness and Basketball.  Please encourage your student(s) to dress out each day.  This is a major component of their overall grade in this class and many are losing points at an alarming rate.  I encourage you to go into SYNERGY and check the progress of your student in my class and in all his classes.  The most successful students are those with parents that are supportive and involved in their academic pursuits!

 

Thank you,

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Parents and Students,

Good afternoon.  I hope your week is off to a great start.  We are currently in our basketball and fitness unit.  I am having some concerns about the high number of students who are not dressing out on a daily basis.  This will have a negative impact on their grade in a short amount of time.  Please visit with your student and make sure they are dressing out for PE each day.  Other than that things are going well.  Students are actively participating and increasing their level of fitness.

Thank you,

WEEKLY UPDATE

Parents and Students,

Happy Friday!  I apologize for not getting you an update earlier in the week.  However, here is what this week has consisted of and what next week will bring. This week our 6th and 8th graders had scoliosis screening while our 7th graders were on a normal schedule. Everything went well in all groups and I am proud of the flexibility that everyone showed during this week since our routine was interrupted.  Next week we will begin our basketball unit.  Please encourage your student to dress out daily as this helps them to enjoy the activities more keeps their grade from dropping.  Have a great weekend!

CONFERENCE WEEK COMING TO A CLOSE

Parents,

I had the opportunity to meet some of you this week during conferences.  Thank you for spending a few moments with me so that I could convey to you the current status of your student both academically and behaviorally.  As we complete conference week tomorrow (Friday), we will be back on our regular schedule next week.  However, our 6th and 8th graders will have scoliosis screening on MON, TUE and WED of next week.  Please pay close attention to announcements as well as our 6-1 and 8-1 connections teachers as they will be giving you very important information about screening next week.

Thank you,

CONFERENCE WEEK AT FLOYD MS

Parents,

Hello!  As most of you know, this week is conference week at Floyd MS.  Many of you will be up here this week meeting with teachers regarding your student’s progress.  Due to conference week, connections classes will be on a rotation this week with your student(s).  This is the first week that we are dressing out in PE, so please make sure that your student is bringing clothes to change in to for PE.  Please remind them to secure all valuables in their locker (phones, money, jewelry, etc.) in an effort to keep it from being stolen.  We have great students here at Floyd, but even so things go missing from time to time.  We will be working on Physical Fitness (push-ups, sit-ups and jogging) for the next week and a half.

Thank you,

WEEK OF OCTOBER 15th

Parents and Students,

Please bring your dress out (athletic clothing) beginning on Monday, October 15th.  This will be the first day that we dress out.  All students have been given a lock and a locker to secure their belongings during this time.  We will begin the PE portion of the class focusing on Physical Fitness.  Students will be stretching, doing push-ups and sit-ups and jogging in an effort to increase their individual levels of fitness.  Have a great weekend!
