Hello! My name is Ms. Smith and I attend Wayne State. I will be student teaching with Ms. Cusumano this fall until December. I am excited for this experience and to work with your students. 🙂
Last week was our first week back. We had a great week back in the classroom! This week is another short week…only 4 days. We will continue reviewing rules and expectations as well as reviewing academics and skills. We will start NWEA testing at the end of this week and continue on through the next couple of weeks. Signed code of conducts are due as well so please make sure those get turned in as you review the school code of conduct.
Students have been excited about the new lunch options. They come back from lunch every day anxious to share what new foods they have been eating. Please remember to ask them about it!
Welcome back to school!! We are excited to start our new school year!! Students have new schedules and are getting new lockers as well. Please practice with them at home with using a combination lock so that they can use their lockers independently.
Open House is Wednesday September 11th from 6:00-7:30. I look forward to seeing everyone there.
A class syllabus has been sent home with a supply list on them, please check backpacks for this. If you need a new one, please ask.
It’s the LAST week of school! I can’t believe it myself either. We will be taking finals in all subject areas this week. The finals will include a final writing for Language Arts, a final project in Math and Science, and a final on the Civil War in Social Studies.
Wednesday is the last day for backpacks at school. Students should still bring a pencil/planners to school the following days, but other supplies will be provided for them.
Friday is the 8th grade promotional ceremony. 8th graders are required to meet at 7:50 in gyms A and B and dress nicely. No jeans or shorts are allowed.
End of May is already approaching. This week students will be able to participate in May’s PBIS event for Volleyball.
A BMX Bike assembly will also take place on Wednesday afternoon.
