Homework for June 4, A Day

Announcements: Mariners will go on a field trip to Thomas Lee House on 6/10 (rain date is 6/11).  Please keep an eye on the weather so that your child is dressed appropriately for the day,  and DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CHILD TO WEAR OPEN SHOES OF ANY KIND.  Sneakers are preferred.

NFINITE CAMPUS IS YOUR FRIEND.  Your children are acclimating nicely to the team, and we will be moving out of the "orientation" portion of September soon.  Therefore, we want to take a minute to remind you of how useful Infinite Campus is.  PLEASE BE SURE TO REGISTER FOR EMAIL COMMUNICATION VIA INFINITE CAMPUS.  Infinite Campus is not just about "checking your child's grades".  This tool also allows teachers to send detailed communications to families pertaining to classroom learning, and in some cases like Mrs. Kuvalanka's classes, it allows you to access resources via your child's account.  If you do not register for Infinite Campus emails, you will miss valuable team announcements and classroom information.  If you need assistance registering, please contact Jennifer Berchielli at ELMS (860-739-4491).

Students now have access to their Google Drive and are members of social studies classes in Google Classroom.  Classroom resources are also posted in Google Classroom.

Personal devices in social studies:  As the SS Technology Expectations outlines, students are allowed to use personal devices to listen to music from time to time while conducting research.  Many students have expressed that listening to music increases their productivity and enjoyment while learning, so as long as the device is used solely for music, the student has headphones, and parents allow the child to bring said device to school, it is allowed at times in class.
