Announcements and Events

The computers in our school system are supposed to be scanned automatically from the central office, but it does not hurt to manually scan yours once in a while. Here is what to do:

  • Click on "Start" and then "Programs" (or "All Programs")
  • Choose "Symantec Client Security"
  • From that menu, choose "Symantec AntiVirus Client"
  • On the left side of the screen, you will see an icon that says "Scan."
  • If it has a "+" beside it, click the "+" sign. That will show you the selections under it.
  • Click on "Scan Computer."
  • You will now be looking at your choices of what you can scan.
  • Click beside "Local Drive (C:)"
  • Click "Scan"
  • If the results reveal a virus, the program will attempt to clean the virus or quarantine it. Either one of these are good things.
  • If you do find a virus, please jot down what it says the name of it is and what it did with the virus (Removed, quarantined, etc.)

We still have Graham Christmas ornaments for sale. Info is here.

Christmas parties—Just as a reminder, we need to plan our classroom Christmas parties for December 20 rather than the day before. Having the parties the last day gives kids (and parents) an added incentive to be here.

Supervision of Students—Many problems are prevented by having an adult watching. Most of us are very good about this. Being on time to pick up classes from library and music is essential. The longer students are standing in line waiting, the more opportunity they have for mischief. Also, the less time students spend waiting in line for their teacher, the more time they are able to spend in instruction.

Site for Short PlaysReader’s Theatre Scripts and Plays is a site containing a number of short plays. You can look at any of them on-screen and then print any you like. Xeroxing them is also allowable. Fluency is one key component of developing comprehension, and re-reading text is a good way to build fluency. You may find reading short plays in class to be an enjoyable way to have students re-read text fluently and with proper voice inflection.
