Good Morning Super Students! Remember we have Typing club at 8:00 today in the lab. Use the bathroom and make lunch choice ASAP! Ms. Hopper also has a few things she would like you to do for social studies. When you get morning math done, please get into your social folder and complete the worksheets she has for you! Random Trivia: What part of your body ages the fastest? Let's make today a good one!
Good Morning Future World Changers! Today's focus is going to be all about being PREPARED! I want each and everyone of you today to try and have all your supplies, materials, assignments ready to go the first time! Starting with making your lunch choice, taking your chair down, beginning morning work..etc. #6,7,8,9 it's your turn to share your morning math today :) Let's make today a good one by being Prepared!
I have already used it once this year when a student forgot it on a bus. It didn't work initially because it was still on the bus and not connected to a wifi source but once it was, it sent me a notification. Luckily it was brought to the middle school and had a wifi connection. Remember, their iPads will act differently than a phone. Phones have constant wifi access, enabling them to use the "find my phone" app all the time. iPads only have wifi if they are within range of a hot spot. Please post any comments or suggestions you have on the blog! I would love for parents to start having more of a conversation about our devices because I know a lot of you have questions, concerns, things that work at your house with your child that other parents are struggling with. So if something works for you...or you are looking for advice please share!
Good Morning Super Students, if you did not finish your homework yesterday, please make sure you have chosen your job and have your salary written down in your budget packet. You also need to have your annual salary calculated so that you know what your monthly budget is going to be (divide by 12). That is your first priority, then finish morning work. Reminder that book checkout is tomorrow, please put your books in the return bin before then! Let's make today a good one.
Good Morning Future World Changers! Feels good to be back, missed everyone! Welcome Shaun to our class! We will also have another guest in our room today, Miss Moening. Let's show her what makes PV so great! Make sure to make your lunch choice and finish your morning work! Let's make today a good one!
Good Morning Future World Changers! As you can see I am not here. Bode has Croup, an infection of the larynx. If you see your fellow classmates pass along the message to read morning message on their iPads, the sub will not have a computer! Complete morning work as always though. I expect many of you to be helpers today. Please make sure the VCR and audio box are turned on for WAEL, make your lunch choices and grab breakfast!

Please help Shaun make his way around the building today. Not only will it be his first day in school but his teacher is absent! He will sit in Ayianna's desk by Rubyn and his locker will be next to Cooper's. Please help him find those items. Also, his school number will be #14....there is an extra lunch token in my green bowl on my desk at the bottom if you'd like to give to him and show him how to make lunch choice. He won't have an iPad so Rubyn, I'm looking at you to share with him today and make some good choices :)
After your quick check, I am going to give you work time to complete your homework. If you are done with it, you will have some time to either: read quietly, play any math game from schoology or our website, sudoku (in math course, new folder called "Extra Activities") Owen, there is an INSANE level just for you :) or I put some fun multiplication/division practice coloring sheets in the math course in that same "extra activities" folder. Color them in Notability, I also added a brain teaser book! You can open in notability as well and work on which ever problem you want...Jack for you!
You may also read the articles I posted on the blog the last few days...lots of world news to catch up on and be informed!
Teams were given 20 pieces of spaghetti, 1 yard of string, 1 yard of tape, 1 marshmallow and 18 minutes to build the tallest structure they could. The catch was, the building had to be free standing with only those objects and a flat surface, i.e. a desk, and the mallow had to stay on top long enough for me to measure! We had a few groups be successful in building a structure that did not collapse, others learned a valuable lesson in teamwork and planning :)
Good Morning World Changers! Super busy morning ahead. We have book check out at 8, please place your books in the black bin so that someone can run them to Ms. Opatz at 7:45! We then have Phy Ed, immediately followed by DARE. No WIN today or science. Make today a good one!
