Hello and welcome to my communications page for parents/guardians. Please consider bookmarking this page so you can easily return to it. I do my very best to update this page weekly with important information.

If things look “off” or “weird” please click on the left task bar where it says “Verify your browser...” You may need an update to see things properly. 

Let me take a moment to explain how my website works. This is my homepage. You will be directed here from the SPS school website. From this page, you can use the left taskbar to navigate to other pages I have. I hope you find it helpful and efficient. I would appreciate any feedback about its use. I’d like to work on improving it for ease for parents/guardians and students. 

Thank you!

Good morning! Last week of school. This week is a catch-up week. Any missing/late work from April/May needs to be turned in ASAP so I can finish up my grades and get them entered by Thursday.

Also, if you still wanted to make a goodbye video I would need that ASAP. If you would prefer you can write a short message and e-mail it to me and I will try to work that into the iMovie.

Many of you still have not taken the POST test final. It was sent to you as an assignment in Google Classroom last week. That would be great if you could take it.  

Please be kind to your teachers and get any missing/late work turned in asap so we can also wrap this year up. Even with these unusual circumstances, the last week of school comes with a lot of duties/tasks to do.  

Congratulations to my 8th-grade students! As of Friday, you will be freshmen in high school! (Sounds crazy huh?!?!) We will miss you here at the SJH but we also know great things are ahead of you. Work hard, do your best, and be kind to yourselves and one another. This world needs this more than ever. 

To my 7th grade students, as of Friday, you will be 8th graders! (Upperclassmen at the SJH) Congratulations! I look forward to seeing your bright, shining faces next year. 

I hope you all have a wonderful summer and of course, stay safe. 

Love and best wishes always, 

Mrs. Ware

The final graded assignment has been sent in Google Classroom. It is the FINAL for our class. Hopefully, students will show growth from the time they have been in class and the other two times they have taken it.



Updated April 27, 2019

This week’s lesson plans are posted on the lesson plan page. Students will be creating goodbye videos. Please see the lesson plan for directions and requirements.

For whatever reason, I cannot see my “Lesson Plans” page so I am going to post the lesson for this week here. This assignment has been sent to all students through Google Classroom. This is ideally where I would like for them to complete the assignment. But...if they cannot access through there, here is the link. 

Flipgrid Response:

Students can access the Flipgrid, record, and then they should upload it to their Google Classroom.

Thanks so much!

Good morning,

This week students will begin working on their Need To Knows (NTK’s) for their project. Last week students brainstormed, grouped themselves, and worked on completing their contracts. This week we will focus on beginning research for their projects by answering the who, what, when, where, how, and why questions.

I have several students already who have two missing assignments. Please check in with your student to see if they are one of them. You can always check Parent Portal or your student’s Student 360. They should know how to access it. There you can see their grades. 

Lesson plans are updated. 

As always, please feel free to contact me any time you have questions or concerns. I typically respond to emails after school or the next day during my prep period. Here is my contact information:

  • e-mail:

  • work phone (573)471-1720

First post of the 2019-2020 school year-2nd  Semester: 

Good afternoon parents/guardians, 

The goal for this page is to keep you, as well as students, up to date with what is going on in class. It will be a little different from other teacher’s pages, such as my class is, because I will have multiple groups doing different projects. 

Let’s begin with the essentials: 

 Supplies needed. The only item your student will need for this class (for now) is a composition book.  They are $0.50 at Wal Mart or most of our local stores. They will also need some writing utensil. 

Students will need to keep their iPads charged, as we use them almost daily. (Or have their chargers with them to charge, if needed) They will be completing work on these devices, as well as researching and creating things. 

Weekly Assessements: These assignments will be sent out in Google Classroom and submitted the same way) 

Individual Project Work Report: (Completed by all students EXCEPT Project Managers.)

Team Project Work Report: (Completed by the TEAM but submitted by one team member.)

Project Management Log: (Completed by the Project Manager only.)


Miscellaneous Assessments: 

Each group will decide, on their own, what project they want to do. Grades will be specific to what the needs of the group, or individual, is. If a group needs to learn how to create a poll, I will teach them how to do it, let them practice the skill, and then grade the final product they send out.  

Looking at grades in SIS: 

Not all students will have the same amount of total points. As I mentioned earlier, grades are specific to students and to groups, depending on their needs. When looking at grades in SIS, if your student has a blank space for an assignment, this means this particular assignment wasn’t assigned to them. If you see a 0, this means your student IS missing this assignment, or I have made an error. Please feel free to contact me to clarify. With so many variables, I DO make mistakes. :=) 

Innovator’s Learning Lab letter to Parents/guardians:

I hope this will get you and your student started. Remember to check back weekly. I will be updating as much as possible, usually on Sundays. You can also check out my Twitter. You can see it on this website in the top right hand corner or you may follow me @Mrs_Ware_SJH. 

As always, please feel free to contact me any time you have questions or concerns. I typically respond to emails after school or the next day on my prep period. Here is my contact information:

  • e-mail:

  • work phone (573)471-1720

  • planning period: 6th hour (1:17-2:12)

Please enjoy the rest of your Sunday!


Mrs. Ware
