Good afternoon,

It has definitely  been a Monday. I apologize for the update being late. I thought I could quickly pop in this morning and get it done quickly and that is not at all how it turned out!

Lesson plans have been updated for the week. There are several attachments along with it. All of the rubrics (scoring guides), the Multimedia Presentation Requirements, and the Newsletter for the week are attached to the lesson plans. 

The rubrics given for this project will be the same rubrics used for all of the projects. It would be wise to have students get familiar with them. 

Students do have dress requirements for presentations. They are listed in both the newsletter and the Requirements handout. If you need assistance with the dress requirements, please contact me A.S.A.P.

I made a newsletter. Please check it out. I would love some feedback. Was it informative? What kind of information would you like to see in future editions?

Good afternoon Parents/guardians,

Lesson plans are posted for the week. We will have a community parter come visit on Monday and share with us her fundraising experience. Students will then begin to work on their fundraising ideas for the week. Plans will be due on Friday. 

In addition to our weekly focus, some students will also be working on additional drafts of the previous work. We are working towards perfection for presentation night. The budget will not be complete until right before presentation night as well. This is a multifaceted machine with many gears shifting at one time. It is a little overwhelming but the students are doing remarkably well for not having any experience with this type of a project. It will get easier as we go along and they get comfortable with the process. 

We do have a presentation date set. All presentations will take place on Wednesday, October 3, 2018, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in our Junior High cafeteria. Students will have dress requirements that I will announce at a later date and their attendance is mandatory. We are hoping all parents and friends/family can come watch and participate in our event. I will continue to update you with more information as time goes on. 

I hope you enjoy your Sunday.

Good morning Parents/guardians,

Good morning Parents/guardians, 

I wasn’t feeling great this weekend so I didn’t get to update my website on Sunday, my apologies. 

This week our focus is on the budget. Students were introduced to the budget last week. By the end of the week I think they had a better idea of what a budget is and it’s purpose. They will continue to work on the budget this week with two component of the budget being due on Friday. Those two sections are the Advertising and B.A.R.K. Store Inventory categories which are on the Budget Proposal sheet. Any/all Purchase Requisitions for those respective categories are due on Friday as well. 

In addition to the two parts of the budget being due, the group Project Team Work Plan (planning sheet) is due and an individual assignment for those who went on the field trip visit. (Thank you letter/note for Mr. John Seiler) 

I am working on getting an experienced fund raising expert in our classroom next week. Cross your fingers the scheduling works out! If it does, that will be our focus for next week and we will also be working on the budgeting portion of the Budget Propsal sheet for that category. 

As always, please feel free to contact me any time you have questions or concerns. Here is my contact information:

  • e-mail: cware@spsr6.org
  • work phone (573)471-1720
  • planning period: 4th hour (11:07-12:49)

Good afternoon parents/guardians, 

Remember how I mentioned last week (see below for the prior post) how our plans change based on our Need to Knows? After our Community Partner, Mrs. Lyndsi Lee, (Interior designer) presented, I realized I needed to reschedule the final presentation.  I do not have a date as of yet. I need to see how the students do this week working on their budgets. 

Lesson plans have been posted for this week. I will be introducing the students to budgeting. They have two components to the budget they will be required to complete and add to their final presentation. I will push these out in Google Classroom some time this evening. 

Speaking of budgets, there are three videos Ms. Walker, our 8th grade math teacher, was gracious enough to make for me. The topics are: how to compute square footage (one with feet only and one with feet and inches) and how to compute unit price. These will be very beneficial for the students while they work on their budgets. They were sent out on Friday through Google Classroom. 

I am looking for Community Partners who have experience with fundraising and someone with advertising experience. Many of the groups have mentioned raising money to help fund their B.A.R.K. Store Challenge Plan and also advertising for the B.A.R. K. store. I would love to have professionals come and speak to the students about successful ways to fundraise or advertise, or allow me to video tape them so I can present the information to the students. If you, or someone you know, would be willing to assist our students in their authentic learning, we would love to have you!

I do have some grades to put into the gradebook for last week. I don’t anticipate I will be able to get them in tonight, nor tomorrow, but they should be in by the end of the day on Tuesday. 

As always, please feel free to contact me any time you have questions or concerns. Here is my contact information:

  • e-mail: cware@spsr6.org
  • work phone (573)471-1720
  • planning period: 4th hour (11:07-12:49)

Please enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Ware

Updated: August 26, 2018

Good afternoon! This week is a busy and critical week for our students. I am anticipating many “OMG” moments this week. As we go on, the students are coming to realize how much work and planning these projects take but I expect it will fully hit them this week. Please reassure your student it is ok and to take it one step at a time. 

Lesson plans have been posted with our flexible plans outlined. These WILL change! This class is all about finding out what we need and then filling that need. Need to Knows happen daily and things change often based on those needs. I will always update them in Google Classroom. I am going to attempt to invite parents this afternoon. If I have troubles I will speak with our tech person and work on successfully completing that early this week so you can stay involved and up to date as well. 

Our presentations will take place on Wednesday, September 5th, from 6:30-7:30 p.m., in our Junior High cafeteria. All parents/guardians, friends, and family are encouraged to attend. We would like to show support for our students and also get them accustomed to presenting their projects to an authentic audience. They will need this experience for the next project that we do. (Whatever it is they decide to do for their next project!) 

As always, please feel free to contact me any time you have questions or concerns. Here is my contact information:

  • e-mail: cware@spsr6.org
  • work phone (573)471-1720
  • planning period: 4th hour (11:07-12:49)

Please enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Ware
