    Dear 6th Grade Families,

     

    We are excited to introduce Google Meet as a new experience this week.  

     

    Second period classes will be gathering for an enrichment opportunity in Google Meets.  You will receive a separate email from your Second Period Teacher with a meeting time and Google Meets Code.

     

     

     

    We are looking forward to doing this Second Period Classroom Check-in and Discussion via Google Meet.  Here are the directions and meeting guidelines:

     

    Login Directions:

    Receive the Code to enter the meeting from your teacher's separate invite.
    Go to the Google Dashboard
    Click on the MEET icon (video camera with word meet)
    Enter the Code sent by your Second Period Teacher (in a separate email)


    Meeting Etiquette Guidelines:

     

    Students participating in the virtual classroom will need to be aware and agree to follow six guidelines for participating in the meeting.

     

    1.   Attend only the meeting you are invited to with the code you are sent by your teacher
    2.   Only one person is to talk at a time
    3.   Respectfully wait for teacher to prompt you to share
    4.   If you are put on mute by your teacher, please do not un-mute unless instructed to do so.
    5.   Please do not use the private chat feature
    6.   If removed from meeting twice in one call, you will not be permitted to return to that meeting**



    **Failure to abide by these guidelines will result in your teacher excusing you from the meeting by disconnecting your login and removing you from the call.  You may return to the meeting one more time if this occurs.  If you are removed a second time, you will not be welcomed to return to that meeting.


    We hope you are excited to participate in the virtual meeting this week with your second period teacher and classmates.  We look forward to seeing you there.


    Warmest regards,


    Ms. Rinne, Mrs. Robertson, and Mrs. Scott

    Distance Learning May 11-15

     

    Dear Sixth Grade Families,

     

    We hope week 7 of distance learning (Week 8 of the fourth quarter) finds you doing well and feeling successful with what you were able to accomplish last week in our distance learning journey. 

     

     

    School Property Drop-off and Personal Belongings Pick-up Week:

     

    This week, during the time assigned, please make plans to pick up your student’s personal belongings from school and drop off any school materials (textbooks, library books, musical instruments, etc.) that you have at home.  We will have a process to safely collect these without you getting out of your vehicle. 

     

    The scheduled pick up times are Wednesday (5/13) and Thursday (5/14)

     

             May 13th (letters A-L)      7:00 a.m.- 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.- 7:00 p.m. 

             May 14th (Letters M-Z)    7:00 a.m.- 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.- 7:00 p.m. 


    For more information, please refer to the blog post below: "Important Message from Mrs. Tollefson" posted Thursday, May 7. 

     

    Google Meets:  Starting May 11-18 we will be providing opportunities for students to join in a virtual classroom experience where they can interact with other classmates and teachers.  More information regarding this live stream video conferencing will be shared on Monday, May 11th.  Please look for a special Infinite Campus email and Blog message posted here on the Sixth Grade News page regarding this opportunity. 

     

    Google Classroom started with packet #6.  Last week, we began using Google Classroom as a method of delivering online enrichment activities and experiences within our Distance Learning Plan. 

     

    It is important to remember that Google Classroom DOES NOT replace the assignments found on the Sixth Grade News Page Distance Learning Site: Distance Learning Assignments for May 11-15

     

    When students log into Google Classrooms using the Google Classroom Login, they will notice that all classwork experiences offered within the Google Classroom includes weekly enrichment activities.

     

    Students will find these enrichment opportunities listed on the Stream Main Communication Page, as well as the Classwork Page.  Once on the Classwork Page, students will notice the topic names and teacher for each subject accordingly:

     

    Reading: Mrs. Scott

    Math: Ms. Rinne

    Sciences: Mrs. Robertson

    Specials

    Mrs. Aldecoa

     

    This is where students can find the OPTIONAL enrichment activities offered through Google Classroom.  These activities will include videos, Flipgrid prompts, and other extension investigations from not only your 6th grade teachers, but also specials teachers, and Mrs. Aldecoa.

      

    It is our hope that as students begin to familiarize themselves with Google Classroom, and learn how to navigate the application, that they will enjoy and have fun with these extension enrichment opportunities!

     

    Students must have a Virtual Learning Consent Form completed by a parent or guardian to access Google Classroom.

     

    You may refer back to the CTA Liberty Google Classroom Letter sent Monday, April 27th for additional instructions on how to access Google Classrooms.  If you have any questions or need additional assistance, please contact your child's first period teacher.  

     

     

    It will be very important that students remember to complete the Distance Learning Assignments outlined on the Distance Learning Page of the Liberty Website on the Sixth Grade News Page as they have been doing during distance learning.
