ACADIA 7 SPRING CONFERENCES

We will be offering two styles of conferences for May 25th and May 26th. One is the traditional student-led conference format (20 minutes) that was done in the fall. The student will share their goals and habits of work and learning(HOWLs) with parents/guardian and the teachers will check in and briefly update parents on progress/ concerns. The other format is a round table conference (15 minutes) where the goals and habits of work and learning (HOWLs) is shared at home first and then the student and parents come in to meet with a team of teachers to discuss progress from this year and any concerns.

If you wish to sign up for a student led conference use the following entry code when registering on link below: WP81138911

If you wish to sign up for a round table conference use the following entry code when registering on link below: ADQ194177 ​

The most needed items are: peanut butter, jelly, rice,pasta, pasta sauce, boxed cereal, tuna, boxed macaroni & cheese, cannedsoup, canned fruit, canned vegetables, toothpaste, and toothbrushes.

Additionally, on Friday, October 30, Lyman Moore will have its secondannual Food Pantry & Care Closet 5K walk throughout our immediate neighborhood, sofamilies or neighbors can contribute on that occasion also. All contributions are greatlyappreciated! For more information: check the Lyman Moore Facebook page

Conference sign ups will be available next week.  Please be sure to check in to sign up for student-led conferences on either Oct. 28th or Oct. 29th.​

Tech WIP
This week, I will be starting a unit on Google Slides.  I want the students to know how to use both Keynote and Slides so that you have options and can choose whichever presentation you like to use.  The students will know how to use both programs.  My suggestion is that they submit projects with Keynote via eBackpack and share their Google Slides presentations via Google.  Simple enough...


I will continue to emphasize the LA standards for referencing material with regards to "works cited".  


Thanks,
Sean

We had an amazing field trip on Monday!  Thanks to Ms. Hanscom for her assistance with having a group.  The kids were super engaged with the task and had a great day.

Here is a little announcement from Mr. Wasson, the Computer science guru: Building out your personal profile on Keynote.  This is a way to express yourself and tell me about you.  I have offered suggestions in eBackpack.  Though you may take this project in any number of directions.

Week of 6/8-6/12


Physical Education

The Lyman Moore Physical Education Program has wrapped up the Spring Fitnessgram Physical Fitness Assessments. Students participated in this fitness assessment at the end of Nov. and again this April.  

Students will be receiving their Individual FitnessGram Report (which will show a comparison of the fall assessments with the spring assessments) and their Fall Goal Setting Sheets to analyze and reflect on how successful they were in reaching the goals they set for themselves.

 On Friday June 12th we will be emailing out a Parent Report of the results (check spam folders if you do not receive a report).  If we do not have an email on file your child will be given a paper copy.  Please look over this information and talk to your child about setting some fitness goals for the summer.



Upcoming Field Trip!

We are getting squared away with the upcoming field trip to the Challenger Learning Center in Bangor and Cole Transportation Museum next week!  Many plans and activities are in motion for next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Your child will need to arrive at school at 7:45 on their trip day as well as transportation (if he/she does not walk) home at 5:00pm, upon our return.

Please email Mrs. Trieu if you have any questions.



Information for getting set up with an Apple ID for students iPads went home with students today!  It is very important that students get their Apple ID BEFORE the start of 7th grade.  This will expedite the process of passing out iPads in the fall.  Thank you for your prompt attention to this!

Just a reminder that Tuesday, June 2nd is our Step Up Day.  We will be hosting approximately 160 rising 6th graders that day.  In order to accommodate the Step Up Day activities, our 8th graders are being released from school at 11:30, and the schedule for all three grades must be altered.  Our 7th grade students will also have the opportunity to spend some time with the 8th grade house teachers.  It's a very exciting day, but it involves many changes.  We just wanted parents to be aware that even if your child is not in a grade that officially "steps up," that their day is still affected to some degree on that day.

Thanks,
Darci
