IMPORTANT NEWS AND NOTES


This page is meant to give parents a review of topics covered in class each week.  General overviews will be mentioned, which can be complimented by information from your children.    I hope you find this information useful.


WE HAVE A NEW HOME AS OF AUGUST 2020!!!!  We are moving to Room 307, once we are back in the building.  


KEEPING INFORMED


Parents are encouraged to keep abreast of what and how their son/daughter is doing in class.  There are several ways for parents keep informed of class activities and student progress.


The official grades for students are posted on CSIU.  However, since we will be using Schoology as our online classroom platform assignment grades can also be found there.


Emails are another way for parents to keep in touch.  My school email is dsalvucci [at] nbasd.org.  Traditional phone calls take the longest for me to reply since I cannot return calls until the room is empty.


There is also a calendar located on the class wiki that lists upcoming events and this web site.  I also have students using a LIveScribe smartpen to take notes in class.  A .pdf copy of all class notes are posted by period on the class wiki.

IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR THE 2020/2021 SCHOOL YEAR 

Students will be using school distributed Chromebookx, I will help them set up their smartphones or tablets for use outside of class if they request it. 

We are moving to Schoology as our online classroom platform.  Each class period will again have its own Schoology Group. 

Online Textbook links will be listed in the Schoology online classroom, we will be using a mix of online textbooks and primary documents in each course.  


”A WEEKS” and “B WEEKS"

Students will be attending school on an alternate schedule of “A Weeks” and “B Weeks.”  On “A Weeks” students will attend school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  All students will be online from home Wednesdays. “  Week” and fully virtual students will be learning virtually on these days.  My class is “ Synchronous” meaning both virtual and in person students will be interacting through the Zoom classroom live with me.   On “B Weeks” the “B Week” students will in the building, following the same schedule as the “A Week” students did the week before.  “A Week” students and fully virtual students will be home attending class synchronously via Zoom.

HOUR OF CODE 2017/2018  

Hour of Code is a world wide effort to show students what coding entails.  I run Hour of Code as an afterschool event during Computer Science Education Week in December.  The participating students asked that we continue with Hour of Code throughtout the remainder of the school year, so we are.  You can find more information at here HourofCode.org.  This is currently on hold due to trouble with scheduling time when enough students could attend.
