Timeline until the end of the year.

What a great year this has been! I am so proud of each and every one of you. I wanted to post this so that everyone knows the timeline of activities and assessments from now until the end of the year. 

Monday: We will complete Lesson 4 and a passing grade is due by the next day on the module assessment.

Tuesday: We will complete Lesson 5 and a passing grade is due by the next day on the module assessment.

Wednesday: We will complete Lesson 6 and a passing grade is due by the next day on the module assessment.

Thursday: We will complete Lesson 7 .

Friday: We will take a test over personal money management. The test will look very similar to the questions from the module. On this day I will also average up their grades for the modules as their quiz. These can be re-done prior to this day so I would assume all of these should be a 100!

Monday: Today we will take a final. This final will not count as a grade and will only be used to help me get a better understanding of the effectiveness of the lessons done this year. As I have stated, this will not count against you. Other teachers have made study material and I will post it below but I do not want the students to stress over this.

Tuesday: Make ups and activity.

Today we worked on Module 3.  If you were absent, be sure to complete this at home because it will be due for everyone on Monday.

5/10

Today we are embarking on our Personal Money Management unit. While I belive all of the units I have taught are important, this one is the one that I think is most important.

Today we started the Everfi program and will continue with this process.

If students did not finish module 1 and module 2 with a passing grade, they will need to finish it tonight for homework.

To log on:

  1. Go to Clever.com
  2. Log in as a student
  3. It should be self-guided from there

I cannot recover a password. Students were told to make sure it is something they could remember.

The students will take a test on this information next Friday.

Here is the study material

Hello Students and Parents!

As we begin to wrap up the 2017-2018 school year, we wanted to provide you with some dates and information that will help ensure you and your child have a successful end of the school year.  We have a number of end of the year activities and procedures we wanted to make you aware of, and provide you with any and all information needed.  Please assist your child in keeping these dates organized by having them write them down in their agenda, or even on a family calendar.

  • Milestones Testing – 6th – April 10-13

7th – April 16-20

8th – April 10-18

 

  • Field Day
    • 6th grade: Mon., May 7 in the afternoon
    • 7th grade: Wed., May 9 during the normal PE block
    • 8th grade: Fri., May 11 all day
    • Students who purchased field day shirts are encouraged to wear them on their field day.
    • Students who did not purchase field day shirts are encouraged to wear a t-shirt that is the color of their team.
    • Students may wear gym shorts to school on their corresponding field day.

 

  • STEAM Showcase Night , May 10  6:00pm-8:00pm

 

  • Lunch on the Lawn Tue., May 15, a PTSA sponsored event!
    • Students may bring a beach towel to sit on for Lunch on the Lawn.

(Field Day and Lunch on the Lawn are student events; therefore, unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to host parents/siblings/guests to these events.  However, please contact the PTSA should you be able to volunteer for any of these awesome events. )

 

  • Locker Clean-Out
    • 6th grade 5/17, 7th grade 5/18 and 8th grade 5/21. Days are varied by grade level due to the volume of recyclable items and trash.

 

  • Buses
    • No bus passes will be issued beginning Monday, May 14 through the end of the year. Students must ride their own bus home.
    • Students may bring a pen for yearbook signing on the last day of school, Wednesday, May 23.
    • If students routinely pack a lunch, this is also allowed on the bus.

 

  • Yearbooks
    • Distributed on the last day of school.
    • Please speak with your child regarding appropriate sentiments to be written in their peers’ yearbooks. Unfortunately, every year a few students make poor choices and not only ruin others’ yearbooks, but they also receive consequences for their actions.
    • Please understand that yearbooks are not given out early. We are still teaching and learning until the final day!

 

  • We do not give final exams or tests early.

 

  • Students should not bring in food items to share.
    • Parents, please do not drop off food items in the front office for classes. Clear communication prevents disappointments as classes will not be interrupted for these deliveries.

Finally, sometimes students get silly the last few weeks of school.  Please remember that the dress code still applies. Cell phones should be off/out of sight unless a BYOD lesson. Students should strive to make great choices and above all, they should always be kind to one another.

If you have specific questions, do not hesitate to contact your grade level administrator, counselor or teacher(s) for specifics.

It has been a wonderful year!  Thank you for sending us such terrific students to teach and thank you for all you do at home to support our team efforts to rear our children.

 

Sincerely,

The Dickerson Administration
