Winters’ Words for the Week!!

“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”  –Lao Tzu

Welcome to a brand new school year! I am truly excited to begin this journey of knowledge with my students and their families. We will take each day step by step, and make the most of each day. There is a great amount of information that we will be covering in each subject. It is imperative that the students stay focused, and be prepared to put their best foot forward each day. Please note the information under each subject heading, will include what we are working on each week. It will also let you know when we will have quizzes, and tests. This information will also be on my weekly newsletter. I will also include websites that will hopefully, prove helpful to review and work on what we are covering. The interactive notebooks will also be valuable sources of information. 

The students will have agendas, that should contain the homework for each day. It will be the student’s responsibility to write the homework down each day.  I will  sign the agenda daily, to let you know I have seen the homework copied from the board. It will also be a great source of communication between home and school. I will be sending home a packet with papers that will need your signature. I would like the whole packet back, on Friday, September 5, 2014. If you need to talk to me, please don’t hesitate to call, write, come by, or send an e-mail, and I will do the same.  

Take care, and have a great week!

A. Winters

TAC, Categories and Assignment Entry

All elementary and middle school courses should be set up with categories. Teachers of elementary and middle school courses can now add assignments. We are still working on a calculation error we are seeing with high school courses and for that reason teachers of high school courses are still not able or should not add any assignments. We hope to have this issue resolved by Tuesday. This issue also affects high school courses taught at the middle schools.


Any teacher that teaches an elementary or middle school course that is missing categories or is not able to create an assignment should report the issue by submitting a TSR.

Welcome to Kindergarten,

Here is a quick video about what a day in kindergarten is like.  I recommend all parents watch this video.  It is very informative and may answer some questions you may have.

A slew of information was sent home, if you were able to come to orientation, if not you will receive it in your child’s bookbag this evening.  Please fill out all the papers, if they pertain to you, and send back as soon as possible.

I look forward to working with your child, if you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  I can be reached by phone at 923-4167 or by email at  I do check my email throughout the day, which makes it an easier way to contact me.

Again, looking forward to an awesome year!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to kindergarten. I am excited to begin this new year. I look forward to working with all of you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. A Beginning of the Year letter will be coming home this week to explain the classroom management plan, class schedule, among other things.

Forms were sent home in a large ziploc bag. Please be sure to complete and return these forms at your earliest convenience.

Students are to wear their name tags to and from school daily.

Please have your child learn his or her account number  (on back of tag) and bus color.

I’m looking  forward to a great and exciting school year.


Thank you,

C. Boone

Parent Connection Changes to “Home Access Center”


Suffolk Public Schools will be implementing a new grade book, Teacher Access Center, for the 2014-2015 school year. As a result, parents/guardians will no longer use GradeSpeed Parent Connection to monitor student academic progress. A new resource, Home Access Center (HAC), is the parent component of Teacher Access Center and will provide parental access to student academics. Those parents/guardians wishing to transition from GradeSpeed Parent Connection to the new progress monitoring system, Home Access Center, are required to complete and return this form to your child’s school.
