Good morning!

This Week: 

Tuesday: PLC Day – short schedule – Today we’re going to use Online Design to re-create a layout from last year’s book. You will create a Custom Template under the Planbook Tab, and use the tools to insert photos, make text boxes, headlines, and captions. Be sure to name the Template: Name_PracticePage. You will also insert images so that your page looks just like the example below. Use the tutorials on the Walsworth site.

Good morning!

Today we’re going to discuss Classroom Expectations. I know you’re excited about this.

Most of my rules and expectations are probably similar to other teachers’, but some are particular to this class. We’ll go over them today, and if you have any questions, be sure to ask or email me later.

I’m also going to be giving you a form today that I need you to sign and have your parent/guardian sign and return by Tuesday.

Remember that the new tardy policy begins TOMORROW.
