Last Post of the School Year

This will be my last post for this school year!! Here are a few final thoughts:

I want to express what a great pleasure it has been getting to know each and everyone of you. I am so proud of each one of you and how you have grown in so many different areas. It may be that you were reluctant to work in a group, but learned to do so. Maybe you were the one who like to do all the talking and you learned to listen more. Maybe you were the quiet one who listened, but found your voice and discovered others like your ideas. Maybe you were a bit disorganized and found a way to be more efficient. Maybe you found a new friend that you just met this year. These are just a few ways, I have seen you grow! I couldn’t be happier (well I could if I could tell you this in person, but the next best thing will have to do).

I will miss you all, but the best part of being a 7th grader is that you will be back next year. My door is always open to you all (except if I am teaching a class or you are supposed to be in class)! Many of you saw the previous years students stopping by to say Hi and give me grief. I welcome that from you next year too!!

So my greatest wish to you this summer is to relax and enjoy it. Find a good book to read or learn something new. I am planning on learning to bake some different treats for my family and hopefully we can go hiking a lot. Get outside and enjoy the sun!!!

I loved reading on the End of Year Survey what you learned about yourself!! That is what is important… Discovering who we are.. To this day I am still discovering new things about myself all the time (and I am really OLD)

Few reminders:

Final report cards will be mailed home.

Every year, Stout recognizes the hard work and effort of our students and our athletes. This year’s Honors Program will look quite different. There will be a video with announcements of the awards. The following schedule is for the release of the videos by grade:


8th Grade Honors Video shared at 11:00am

6th Grade Honors Video shared at 12:30pm

7th Grade Honors Video shared at 2pm 

If you are receiving an award , you will have an opportunity to come up to Stout on:

Wednesday, June 17th

8th grade may come from 9am-12 noon;

6th & 7th grade may come from 12:30pm-3pm on that day.

There will be stations set up outside to honor social distancing guidelines so you can safely pick up your awards.

Friday, June 5, 2020

Believe it or not, this is our last Friday of the school year!! I don’t know about you this time flew quickly..

Final thoughts:

  1. The extra credit was due Thursday night by 11:59. This is not considered late or missing work, so I will not be accepting any more extra credit work.
  2. All late/missing work will be accepted only up until Sunday, June 7 at 11:59 p.m
  3. Please do not ask if you can turn things in on Monday. The Sunday deadline was set by the district.
  4. Now is the time to check Student Connect and if there is work you did but did not get put into Student Connect let me know ASAP so it can be fixed.
  5. I will not be answering emails this weekend so you have until 5:00 today for any questions you may have.

We can see the finish line coming.. Hang in there everyone.

You should be making your final push to get in any late work. There is not much time left.

Last reminder, I will give when you complete late work.. YOU MUST send me an email listing which assignments to grade.

Today and tomorrow are last days for Student Distribution of materials. It takes place from 10-3 in the parking lot that is east of the school (parking lot by H hall).

During this distribution time if you have any textbooks, library books, books that belong to teachers, instruments, basketball uniforms, etc…. you should be dropping them off at this time too.

Please Know your locker number before arriving. It makes the procedure go much faster.

Tuesday June 2, 2020

Reminder to check Student Connect to see if you are missing work. Once completed make sure to email me with the name of the assignments and dates they were assigned.

This week I have given a light workload so you can catch up on any late work.

Monday, June 1, 2020

Well, we made it through March, April and May!! Welcome June!! Only 11 more days for our school year.. Now is not the time to slack off.. You’ve got this.. We have come this far together..Lets do this!

Google Classroom: There is assignment in Google Classroom for Extra Credit. However, as I have emailed only students who have turned in their research projects may do the extra credit. If you want to do it, you must turn in your project first.

Use this week to get caught up on any and all missing assignments. Absolutely nothing will be accepted after June 7 (per district guidelines).

As I have stated before many times and through many different forms of communications that it is your responsibility to inform me of any late work you have completed. I am not going back through every assignment to find who has turned things in.

We have made it through another week!!

ALL VOLCANOES PROJECTS ARE DUE BY 11:59 pm TODAY!!!!!!!! You have had more than a week to work on this.

IXL H and missing work is due by that time too.

If you have completed any assignments that are more than a week old.. I have reminded you many times it is your responsibility to email with the name of the assignment and the date.

FYI Video of the Day: “What is worse a hurricane or a tornado?”

Thursday May 28, 2020

Hope everyone is finding a way to stay cool!!! Remember to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water!!

REMINDER: Your Volcano projects are due tomorrow.. I see that some of you have been working on the under Assigned.. Make sure once you have finished it that you hit Submit/Turn In.. I assume that if it is under Assign you are still working on it and will not grade it until it is turned in.

IXL H assigned a few weeks ago due tomorrow too!!!!

Student distribution of materials will take place next week starting Monday. Please refer to the schedule set up for the day to be picked up. It is assigned by the hallway your lockers are in. In case you forgot my classroom was in F Hall..which will be Wed from 10-3. H hall is Thursday from 10-3.

FYI Video of the day: “Can you make Lava?”

Wednesday May 27, 2020

Reminder: Your IXL H and Volcano Research Projects are due this Friday. Also, it is important for you to be checking Student Connect for missing work.

Any late work you complete, you must email me directly with the assignment name and date. I do not go back and check for work submitted that is one week past due. That is your responsibility to let me know.

Last thing: Next week you will be able to come and get anything that was left in your lockers. You are not allowed in the building and there is a procedure like we did for Chromebook distribution. You will remain in your cars and your items will be brought to you. Your families should check out the information that the school has provided with the steps and date for you. I have placed this information in Google Classroom and was a separate post yesterday.

Distribution of Student Materials

Attention Stout Families, 

From Monday, June 1st through Friday, June 5th, from 10am to 3pm, students will be able to RECOVER any materials they have in the building (hall and gym locker) and RETURN any materials that are property of Stout (library or classroom books, textbooks such as social studies, etc) that they may have. Please read the following information carefully as it pertains to your child. This will be conducted the same way as our Chromebook Distribution, as a drive through. However, the drive-through will take place in the Staff Parking Lot, at the far right if you were facing our building, where buses depart at the end of the day. The day that you can come pick up your materials depends on where your locker is. Parents must accompany their child and bring ID. Parents will be asked to pull into the Staff Parking Lot and follow the drive-through lane to the appropriate door, where materials will be handed to them through the passenger window. YOU MUST HAVE A PAPER WITH YOUR NAME ON IT AND LOCKER # WRITTEN ON IT TO SHOW THROUGH THE WINDOW TO STAFF WHEN YOU ARRIVE. Parents and students, PLEASE NOTE, if your items are not picked up by the end of the day on Friday, June 5th 2020, they will be donated to a local charity or disposed of. 

Pick-Up Schedule:

Monday, June 1st, 2020 C-hall lockers/G-hall lockers only


Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020 D-hall lockers only


Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020 F-hall lockers only
