Student Email Change

email_iconTo make it easier for teachers to find student email addresses, student email is moving into the same organization as staff. This change means student email addresses and user names have changed.

Student email addresses and user IDs will follow this schematic: firstname+lastname+last four of student ID. A student with the name John Smith and a student ID 123456789 will have an email address and user ID of johnsmith6789@spsk12.net.

Students that have used their Suffolk Google Apps account last year will have both accounts. The original account will remain active until October 1 to allow those users the opportunity to migrate documents and emails from the original account to the new account.

WELCOME 2014-15

September 2014

WELCOME TO 2nd GRADE! I am so happy to have your child in my class this year at Nansemond Parkway. I have many interesting and fun activities planned for this year and am very excited to be working with your child. We will be learning a lot and I thank you now for all of your support as we fully embrace the motto: “…where learning is a quest that we venture upon daily!”  This is my 17th year teaching and every year I learn as much as the children. I wanted to take this time to explain some of the things you will be seeing this year from me and from your child.

*My blog is located at: http://blogs.spsk12.net/1415/   This is where you will find weekly information on homework, important dates and activities, SOLs to be covered that week and more. Please check this weekly if possible.

*Email: The BEST way to get in contact with me during the school day is by emailing me at: katharinenaccarato@spsk12.net(I am not always able to take phone calls during instructional time and many times things come up during our resource periods and then I may not see your message until after school.) I CHECK MY EMAIL OFTEN THROUGHOUT THE DAY. However, if you need to speak with me asap, please let the office staff know that when you call and I will get back to you in a timely manner.

*Procedures and Rules for Room 49:

Super Student-pink

 

Great Job-purple

 

Good Choices-blue

 

READY TO LEARN-green

 

Think About It-yellow

 

Teacher Choice-orange
Parent Contact-red

I believe in setting expectations and procedures for all activities that will take place in our classroom. This provides for a safe, healthy and happy environment contusive to learning and being at our best every day. We will learn and practice these daily and your child will know what to do and what is expected of him/her every day.

The Rules are as follows:

1. Follow Directions Quickly!

2. Raise Your Hand for Permission to Speak.

3. Raise Your Hand for Permission to Leave Your Seat.

4. Make Smart Choices!

5. Keep Your Dear Teacher Happy!

 

This behavior chart starts everyone out each day on “Ready to Learn.”  The

children move up and down the chart depending on their behavior throughout

the day.  Those on pink at the end of the day will get a reward.  These could include

stickers, braves bills, high fives, etc.   If your child is on red at the end of the day,

you will see a note home in their agenda or receive an email about why.

 

 

 

 

*Homework is an important part of learning. It reinforces what we have already done in class and lets you practice with your child to see the progress that they are making and what they are learning. This should be a positive experience and not the cause of stress filled evenings for you and your child. There will be Reading/Spelling homework every night (Monday- Thursday), with spelling quizzes on Fridays, and one other subject area each night and they should read for at least 15 minutes.  All homework should be done in a homework notebook and that will be turned in on Fridays. White envelopes (student completed work) will be sent home on Tuesdays.

**I look forward to a terrific school year and if there is anything you need, please feel free to contact me at any time.

Student Email is Moving

To make it easier for teachers to find student email addresses, student email is moving into the same organization as staff. There are other benefits to this move as the district and buildings increase Google Apps usage with students.

Buildings and students that have not used Google Apps yet will not be impacted. Those students and buildings that used used Google Apps with students last year will be impacted. This change means student email addresses and user names have changed.

Student email addresses and user IDs will follow this schematic, firstname+lastname+last four of student ID. A student with the name John Smith and a student ID 123456789 would have an email address and user ID of johnsmith6789@spsk12.net.

Students that used their Suffolk Google Apps account last year will have both accounts. The original account will remain active until October 1 to allow those users the opportunity to migrate documents and emails from the original account to the new account.

Weekly Objectives Sept 2-5, 2014

Happy First Day of School, 2014-2015!

Homework for this week is to bring back all of the important papers.  Beginning next week, the homework menu will be in the red folder. Please do one choice (or all three) daily. The orange SCHOOL folder (School and home Communication Helps Out with Our Learning) is a daily communicator that contains the important papers that we need back at school. Students need the AUP (computer form) signed and returned in order to use the computers in school.  Calendars and your child’s resource schedule will be put in the folder by Friday at the latest,  due to copy issues. Thank you for your support and for those who came to the orientation last Thursday. I look forward to a fabulous and fantastic First Grade year!

Remember the orange folder (SCHOOL)  is a great communication tool that I use daily to let you know your child’s progress, successes, and concerns. Monthly calendars with important dates are included, as well as a copy of our class rules. On Tuesday, weekly papers go home in the white folder, which needs to be returned every Wednesday. Together we make a great team for your child’s success!

Story for this week (use the link under “websites”):
