New Surface Pros Mean a New Routine

Hello parents!  Boy, we had a lot of excited students on Friday.  I feel so privileged to be a part of this district where we are taking student-driven education and college-readiness to a whole new level.

Please keep in mind that with this new technology, there should be a new development of student organizational routines.  Most teachers will be utilizing an app called “ClassNote 2016” to deliver instruction, provide supplemental materials (videos, screen casts, and diagrams), and distribute/collect homework.  ClassNote is like a virtual binder – your student will have a ClassNote folder for each class, and these folders should be reviewed nightly.  This week, I will be giving a homework assignment for students to show parents each folder and I will be asking parents to sign a page in the math folder.  This is an effort to encourage students to familiarize you with the new system.  Please take the time to review the ClassNote 2016 app with them each night for the first 30 days of use.   Development of the new routine is critical, and new habits take 30 days to develop properly!

 

Thank you for your support.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions.
