No Creek Visit Tomorrow for Third Grade River Kids

Parents and Students:

Due to flooding, rain, and treacherous conditions at and along Rube’s Creek and it’s branches, we will not be visiting the creek to do our monitoring tomorrow. I will bring creek samples from a different section of the same creek tomorrow for us to conduct experiments and observe. We’ll discuss the changes and the accuracy of our data.

Parents – thank you for volunteering, you are welcome to come and take part in our experiments. We will begin around 9:30.

Be safe and stay dry!

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)

first.last@students.cobbk12.org

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 Kelley.williams@cobbk12.org 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.
