Hello and welcome to the Green Team! This is our team website and where you should go for all pertinent information regarding everythingGREEN! Your core teachers for the year are Mr. Olinski, Mrs. King, andMrs. Dambra. We hope that you are having a wonderful summer and are confident you will find JP an enjoyable and worthwhile experience.
This year will be structured a bit differently than elementary school. You will have a block of ELA, reading and writing combined, taught to you by your homeroom teacher. Then throughout the course of your day you will rotate to Mr. Olinski for math, Mrs. King for science, and Mrs. Dambra for social studies.
Your child is about to embark one of their final tasks for us, and it will be unlike any that they have attempted before. We are asking them to chronicle “A Day in the Life” of them. They are the director, editor, producer, and actor all in one.
They will be using a variety of technology to create this task. Cameras, both still and video, voice recorders, music, and a variety of software will be accessible to them. We have asked the class to use whatever hardware they have, however, we too will provide them with what they will need if they do not have something of their own.
They will be taking pictures of their day-both past and present, recording their events, and then creating a movie or slideshow of a snapshot of their life. Soon, on our website you can view the slideshow that we created and shared with them. In it you are able to catch a glimpse of all of the details we are looking for them to aspire to find.
If you have any questions along the way, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be working on this for about 2 weeks and then we will see what we can create!
Thank you for a great year. We hope summer treats you all well and 7th grade is another great adventure for you and your child.
As you may know, Monday the 27th marks the end of the second quarter. It is hard to believe that in less than 2 weeks your child will be closer to becoming a 7th grader than they are starting as a 6th grader.
As we continue to prepare your child for 7th grade we will remind them less than usual about their opportunities for corrections and bringing their materials to class. Next year they will be traveling all throughout the building and will be unable to “run to their locker.”
It’s hard to believe but 10 weeks has already gone by! Today marks
the end of the quarter and we have wrapped up our grades. Students
received paper copies of all their grades in our classes today,
therefore there will be no surprises when report cards are posted
online. We stressed with the students the importance of studying,
doing their schoolwork, making corrections when possible, and being an
advocate for themselves when they need help. When you are looking over
these sheets tonight with them please reinforce our message.
Today students will receive a five week grade sheet in each core class. If your child’s grade is not where you believe they are capable of achieving, please review the grade sheet to set some goals for the second half of the quarter. 5 weeks is a good time to reiterate good study skills that help raise/maintain one’s grade. It is also a good time to remind your child that if their grade is currently high, it takes work to stay there. Read more…
