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!

This week our focus will be on preparing our presentations for next Tuesday, December 10th. Hopefully, students will use their time wisely and also build in enough time to practice their presentation before presentation day. 

Your student will be presenting during their hour. Parents are encouraged to attend. We will hold our presentations in the computer lab, room 128-129. Each group will be required to present between 5-6 minutes. All of the presentation requirements were sent to them in Google Classroom today. 

Students will still be required to dress professionally. 

For those students who cannot attend, I will have an alternate assignment. 

Lesson plans are updated to the last day of school for this year. 

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: cware@spsr6.org

  • work phone (573)471-1720

Since the turn out for our first presentation was so low, for both parents and students, I have decided to try a different approach to the presentations. 

Presentations will still be on Tuesday, December 10, 2019. Instead of the presentations taking up an evening of everyone’s time, we will do the presentations during the day. Parents are, of course, always encouraged to participate. Presentations will take place during your child’s hour with me. Here is our schedule: 

1st hour: 8:10-9:05

2nd hour: 9:09-10:04

3rd hour: 10:08-11:03

4th hour: 11:07-12:39

7th hour: 2:16-3:10

Since attendance has become an issue this year, I have created an alternative assignment for absences. For students who do not attend the presentations, a 10 paragraph essay will be the makeup assignment. This will include absences because of illness. 

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:

Good morning, lesson plans are updated.

Just as a reminder, our formal presentation date for this project is Tuesday, December 10, from 6-8.

A general guideline to our timeline is: 

11-18 to 11-22: Students will continue to work on planning or completing their projects. 

11-25 to 11-26: Students will have these two days to finalize and finish up their projects. 

12-2 to 12-6: Students will use this week to prepare and practice their presentations. 

12-9: Last day to prep/practice for presentation night tomorrow. 

12-10: Presentation night, 6-8 p.m. 

12-11 to 12-13: Students will read and analyze feedback forms from presentation night. 

12-16 to 12-20: Students will reflect on this semester’s projects and demonstrate growth. 

I hope this timeline will help you with your planning. Our semester is quickly winding down! 

As I get time, I am still trying to work on my website. Please keep checking back.

Lesson plans are updated. 

We have several things going on this week after school and meetings with community partners. 

Progress Reports will be going out this weekend. 

I am going to try to make time to work on the hour pages I created last week. I’m still unsure how exactly I want to set these up. Please know, there may be several changes until I find a format that works for our class.

Welcome parents/guardians,

This week students will be learning about budgeting. Today I will introduce them to purchase requisitions. Tuesday will be a conferencing day. I think we will be able to learn about the budget proposal on Wednesday. I will conference again on Thursday. Both of these items will be due on Friday, November 8th

Presentation night will be on Tuesday, December 10th, from 6-8 p.m. This is a required event and will be worth 3oo points. Students demonstrate mastery of the skills we have been working on all semester and this will be our culminating event. 

This week, during 5th hour, all students will take the Mid Test for ELA Thursday and on Friday, they will take the Mid Test for Math. This is the opportunity where students can test out of RTI.

This afternoon is the Youth Coding League meeting until 5 p.m. We will begin the group projects!

Updated Monday,October 21, 2019

Good morning! This week begins a new project week. I am doing something new and allowing the students to try to come up with our next driving question. I have one prepared if we cannot get where we need to. I think these next three days will be dedicated to that. Once we have the Driving Question, students will begin to form teams and build contracts. Next, they will begin their Need To Knows and the process will take off!

I will be pulling back support for most of the students. Our first project was modeling and this time they will have to learn to be more independent, problem solvers, critical thinkers, and self sufficient. Mini lessons will continue as I see the need. Expect that students will be more frustrated until they get used to this. If this is like last year, we will see A LOT of growth by December. 

I am planning on working on my teacher website and updating it with informational videos. It’s a new venture for me so...we shall see how that goes.

First post of the 2019-2020 school year-1st 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.) 

https://s3.amazonaws.com/scschoolfiles/1032/project_work_report_ind_updated.pdf

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

https://s3.amazonaws.com/scschoolfiles/1032/project_work_report_team_updated.pdf

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

https://s3.amazonaws.com/scschoolfiles/1032/project_management_log_updated.pdf

 

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: cware@spsr6.org

  • work phone (573)471-1720

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

Please enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Ware
