Announcements

 

5th Grade Familes should have received an e-mail on 8/26 about our new  Single Sign On platform that will help support our students. This program is called Clever. In the e-mail, was your child's username and password to use the application.  It is an application on the student’s iPad that will house all of their other applications.  This allows them to login to Clever (single sign on) and have access to all of their accounts. We have entered the website for Clever under the online resources tab on Educator Pages. Students and parents must access most of our books using this application. Each site will no longer allow you to login directly to the online resource. Please let us know if you did not receive this e-mail so that we can make sure that we have your correct e-mail address on file and we can forward you the e-mail.

Student Planners:

The student's schedule can be found in the back of the student's planner along with their AR form and ATL form.

The student's planner is to go back and forth from school to home everyday. Mrs. Nessler and Mrs. Galvis will direct the students everyday to write down their homework, important dates, and important information. It is the student's responsibility to make sure that they are using their planners appropriately.

Journeys Online Resource:

Think Central will not be able to be accessed through CLEVER. Please use the following link with the student's username and password to access online resources for Journeys.

Accelerated Reader:

The students were given their reading goals for the 2nd Trimester. They were also given an AR form to complete for each book that they read and take an AR quiz for. The student's reading goal and reading level are also written on the form which can be found in your child's planner.

**Students should be reading daily over the Christmas break. Students should read 20-30 minutes each day. Please encourage them to make it part of their daily routine. **

The last day to take an AR for 2nd Trimester is Thursday, February 16th.

 

 

Handwriting:

Students are assigned a handwriting page weekly. If a student did not complete a handwriting page during the 1st trimester, it is the student's responsibility to have the assigned page completed and turned in by Tuesday, November 2nd. If a student has any incomplete pages in the handwriting book, they will receive an ATL in ELA.

 

ATLs:

If a student has an ATL in a subject, they will be marked and dated on the Approaches to Learning form in the back of the student's planner. The ATL grade will be entered into Renweb and will be highlighted yellow in the gradebook. Click on the ATL grade and it will display the details of the ATL. Parents: ATL grades can only be accessed using a laptop or desktop computer. These devices give a more detailed view of Renweb's gradebook than using the app on your phone or an i-Pad.
