How to Log In To OneNote for Students

It seems the password is the same one they use at school either 123 or keh

 

Here is the login information for logging into Office 365 and accessing our Target Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade Class Notebooks.

Go to the CCSD homepage @ cobbk12.org

Click on Parents

Click on 365 Login

There should be a page that pops up prompting students to put in their user name and password.

The user name should be typed by inserting their first name and last name (as they are registered)

[email protected]

Be sure to include all the periods!

The password is their school id number (the number they use to login at school, purchase lunch, etc.)

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Soon I will send out how parents can access these accounts so you can see what we are up to.

We Are Under Way!

Thank you for coming to our Open House. I know several of you were not able to make it. We are working on getting a PowerPoint uploaded to the website. Please check the page with your grade level for updates and news.

As mentioned in our Open House presentation, I hope you will check out the organizations for gifted children to stay up to date on news, resources, and support available to you as a parent. The best advocate for your child is YOU! Remember we are here to answer any questions. I’ve included the links to some of the organizations for parents of gifted students below:

Fund Raising Ideas

WE NEED YOU!

Next year we would love to teach the Robotics Unit for 4th/5th grades using the LEGO EV3 robots which retail for around $400 a piece. We have one. We need 4 to be well stocked but even a second one would be awesome.

We’d love to hear your ideas or if you think you might have corporate sponsor in mind  – we’d love to talk to you about it!

Please email me at [email protected] with any ideas you may have to get us there!

We have enjoyed the Speroes and Ozobots donated by E.Smith this year and plan to implement them more next year.

On April 30th, Window 3 for Gifted Testing begins and we will be having 1/2 Target Classes on most days for at least the first week. We will keep you posted.

1st Grade Target meeting for parents new to Target is Friday, February 16, 2018, at 7:30 in room 333.  Hope to see you then!

 

Happy New Year Everyone!

We hope everyone had a fun and relaxing holiday break with family and friends! Since we started testing just after the Thanksgiving break, we are anxious to see our students and get back to work in the classroom.

Please check the page of your grade level and teacher to get updates!

New to Target? You should’ve received two copies of the same letter. Please be sure to send a signed copy back to school with your child on January 3rd. We need that signed letter in order for your child to start Target the following week. There is a Target Open House scheduled for Friday, January 12th @7:30am in the Keheley Learning Commons. We look forward to seeing you there. For supplies, your child will need a binder – about 1 1/2 inch with 5 dividers labeled. HW/Tally, PreAlgebra, Affective, Cognitive, and Extension. These are the main topic areas that our Target standards cover. Please don’t hesitate to email one of us with any questions you may have. We will be attending trainings January 3-5 but will be able to answer email.
