Back to School Night Presentation & Curriculum Map
In case you missed the 5/6 Back to School Night, we have posted the presentation on our website. Thank you to those who attended.
Also, a working draft of our curriculum map is posted on the 5/6 website. We will be updating this document as the year unfolds.
Google Classroom: Stepping out of the Comfort Zone
I introduced or reintroduced the students to Google Classroom on Thursday and we started on the the first assignment--choosing and writing about three activities that will help us practice stepping out of our comfort zone and anticipating how we might step out of our comfort zone at 100 Elk. Please have your child share their responses and ways they plan to stretch and grow this week.
Again, I encourage you to register on Seesaw (instructions in a previous e-mail). As your child finishes projects and reflects on them, you will receive updates. Our hopes are that you are continually updated on what your child is doing in the classroom and be able to see not only product, but evidence of process and progress. I welcome any feedback as I (and the rest of the Horizons faculty) experiment with this on-line portfolio.

We have been busy crafting topic sentences, developing paragraphs, interpreting the Horizons Communication Agreements, creating self-portrait collages, experimenting with SeeSaw and much more in homeroom.
I am continuing to use Infinite Campus to track assignment completion. Please follow the link to register or view your child's progress.
