Part of a successful year involves communication. It is important to us that we stay in touch and you feel updated on your child’s progress. To assist us in our communication, and in response to our most recent parent survey, we have researched and chosen a new communication tool for our school. This tool will allow parents to receive communication from all teachers in 6th-8th grades and the school in one place.
We have chosen a new online learning management system (LMS), Schoology /skoo-luh-jee/, that connects parents, staff, content and school news.
We will begin using Schoology for communication with parents, students and staff. As a new tool, we are taking time to set it up and also determine the best way to use Schoology.
In middle school, assignments are shared now in their assignment notebooks and in Schoology. Teachers will email you with additional information. When you use a Parent Access Code to create an account, you will be automatically associated to the student. To associate additional students to your account, you will use the code specific to that student. You should have received information on the access codes in a separate email.
We welcome your feedback as we use this tool to help keep everyone updated on the many events at our school. It has been an exciting start to the year with lots of great news to share. We look forward to sharing this with you in a new way.
Please feel free to contact me with any issues along the way. Again, thanks for your patience as we roll out our new communication tool.
