Week of April 6th - April 10th

 Not a bad first week of school.  I felt like it was the first week of school again, but we are up and using the live classroom, and all of the apps. Yeah us!!!!!  I have put all the students in the apps they need to go into.  We will be using spellingcity.com, google classroom, and mobymax, we are also using zoom.com for our live classes. Students, your emails are set up and ready to go. Email is (first name initial) (last name)@stnicholasrupert.org.  Your password is (first name) (the year you graduate from St. Nicholas). 2020 for 6th grade, and 2021 for 5th grade.  You will need to check your emails several times a day.  Email is going to be my main source of communication during this trying time.  Please have patience with me; I will keep you informed through email and this website.  I am afraid that this is going to be a bumpy ride at first; however, I feel we are up to the challenge.   The 6th grade overnight Boise trip is set up for May 21 and May 22.  I will need both a mom and a dad to go with us.  I want to give you enough notice, so you can make arrangements if you would like to go.

I always put the assignments on here for each day of the week.  As long as everything is done by Fridays, I am happy. I also put Up Coming events on this site.  Remember that this is Holy Week.  There will be no classes on Friday, April 10th, for Good Friday, and no class on Monday, April 19th for Easter Monday.  I am asking that on Friday, at 3:00, that all Catholic Students pray the Rosary.

March and April are going to be strange times, I will do my best to keep you informed with the information I get at least once a day.

Reading and AR Goal/Reading Log

Please encourage your students to read for enjoyment. After reading a book in their reading range, make sure to take an AR test. For every 70 points earned, I will buy that student a milkshake from Burgers ETC.

Reading logs are due every Friday. It will always be listed in the Homework section. A blank copy of the log is in the Document Section for your convenience.

Math

Math assignments are always posted in the homework section of the web page. Assignments are randomly selected for grading.  Those grades make up the Math Homework grade on report cards. Parents are encouraged to check all homework every night for correctness.

For graded homework assignments, students can redo any missed problems, turn in the redo with the original homework, and receive full credit for any problem correctly redone.

If your 5th-grade student forgot his//her math book, there is a PDR version in the Classroom Documents.  Your student can find the day’s lesson and do the work.

Your 6th-grade students are using Kahn Academy.  You can look at their progress from the app.  The students have their user names and passwords. If they cannot remember them, please let me know, and I will e-mail them to you.

Social Studies

We will be using a textbook and begin our studies with the first peoples arriving in North America.  We will quickly go through the prehistoric time and should end the year at the colonization of the Americas.

Emergency School Closure Days

On emergency school closure days, assignments due that day and tests scheduled that day will move to the next day school is in session.  For example, if there is an emergency closure on Friday, and school is back in session on Monday, all homework due and tests scheduled for Friday will occur on Monday.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.  Please remember to keep our School and our Class in your prayers.

Blessings,

Mrs. Charles
