Internet on iPads

The student iPads are able to connect to any wi-fi, at home or at school.  To get the iPads to connect to your home wi-fi (or any public wi-fi you have access to) you may need to go into the “Settings”, which is part of the available app menu.  When in Settings, you will see “Wi-Fi” at the top of the list on the right.  Click on this and then select an available network.  You will be asked to enter a password only for password-protected networks.

After logging into a network, you shouldn’t have to do it again.


We will start our regular math lessons next week.  We will have math homework most days (except Friday).  The homework will be a black and white paper that says “Re-Teach” / ”Practice”.  Students are to do both sides of the paper.  The other math papers that come home will be from what we worked on in class.

SeeSaw and ClassDojo Logins

We will be using ClassDojo as a way to track student behavior points, both positive and negative.  SeeSaw is an app we’ll use for students to post and share their classwork.  Both of these apps have a home login option where parents can sign into the account and follow what their student is working on or their behavior.  Login information for both came home this week in the green holder I had for each student at back to school night.  I recommend you sign up with both services to be in “the loop” with your student.  If you need login information again, please let me know.

Gym Shoes

All students should have some kind of gym shoes at school so they won’t have to wear their outdoor shoes in the gym.  Gym shoes do not need to be new.  Any old pair of clean gym shoes will do.  Please make sure your student has a pair as soon as possible.

Upcoming Dates to Remember
