*Behavior will be kept through ClassDojo. Your child created a log in and emoji for this site. An email was sent inviting you to join us to keep up with behaviors. If you are not yet a part of this nifty site, please contact me to find out how to get connected. You're missing out!
*Occasionally students will be asked to use Schoology to submit an assignment. Students will be directed on how to use these sites before assignments are assigned.
*This year we will be tackling the common core standards. Instead of the traditional standards of an inch deep and a mile wide, these standards tackle essential standards and take them a mile deep, digging into the understanding and relating information to real life connections instead of simply trying to cement them to memory.
*Silver Hills is moving into its third year of grading using the standards-based system. If you are interested in knowing more about either the common core standards, or the standards-based grading system, please click on the embedded links above. If ever you have a question regarding the grading of your student's assignment, please contact me. I would be happy to discuss it with you.
Grades will be input into Infinite Campus within a week of the assessment being collected (sometimes longer for bigger assessments). It is important that both students and parents check this to keep up with their progress. There is a step by step tutorial of how to access this below titled, "how to check my grades".
