    Digital Program Launch Virtual DanceFit + Prizes

    This is "Digital Program Launch Virtual DanceFit + Prizes" by Boosterthon Fun Run on Vimeo.



    Parent announcements:

    -(9/14) progress reports will populate in FOCUS at the end of the day tomorrow.  A "z" means that assignment is missing and is scored as a 0.  An "x" means that assignment has been marked exempt for your child.  There is a FULL list of the assignments for each of the past weeks below the daily schedule.   Simply scroll down.  I have a box for late work in the class.

    -(9/10) Last night I sent out a Sign-up-Genius email for parent conferences.

    -(9/8) Boosterthon kick-off is Monday the 13th.  Check out this video for information on how you can help your kids raise funds for Conley and earn nifty prises along the way.  Video link

    -(9/8)I am sending home a math chapter 1 review packet today.  It is my plan to test on Tuesday next week.  I am asking that students (and parents) review, work through and show the work for these problems.  I will add an additional 5 bonus points to student test scores IF they turn them in COMPLETED on or before next Tuesday.   

    -(9/7)  Students must have headphones or ear buds for working on their computers here at school.  They were given a set the very first week of school.  Some have already lost or broke the set they were given.  Please purchase a set for them if they need one.  The laptops they use have a standard audio plug.  Without headphones they are only getting a fraction of the instruction they need for I-Ready growth and success.

    -(9/1) There's a new source for students to recieve Homework assistance from FEV Tutor Edmentum...   Mr. Koerner sent out a listserv about this last week.  Here's a flier with info.

    (8/31) Here's the Powerpoint that I shared in our Open-House tonight.... 

     (8/27)  We will practice using our online account resources such as Office 365 (in which students have a school email account and access to a suite of online software), ED-Learning (our science program's online components), Think Central (Go!Math's online components) and CANVAS.  In a couple of weeks all students should be able to access these progam platforms AND use my classroom Zoom link to accomplish assignments both in school and from home.

     (8/20) I placed the first set of grades in the gradebook this weekend.  Normally I will put in 1 or 2 items 2-3 times a week instead of the 5 or 6 I put in this time.  IF you see a "Z" as a grade, that item is missing and the score right now equals a 0.  Have junior get that caught up and turned in as soon as posssible.  Remember that I have a list of assignments from past weeks with pdfs of many of them below this week's assignment list (below the class schedule).

    (8/11) If you are not signed up for "listserv" messages, please take a moment to visit Conley's home page to sign up for that.  Through "listserv" you will recieve important communications from our Admin team in a timely manner.   

     (8/13) Parent Portal is a tool you need.  If you have it, make sure it works and that you update your contact info in it.  If you don't have it....  get it.    I have attached 3 documents below that will help with getting and/or updating a parent portal account.  How to get it     how to update it    what it can do

    (8/09) *****If you need to change your child's dismissal plan for a particular day, please send an email to CSSOffice@leonschools.net by no later than 2:00 PM.  If you are planning to pick them up early from school it should be done no later than 2:15.*****


    My email….  If you have questions.   christianos@leonschools.net

     (8/09)  Because Ms. Rice and I will be involved in teaching activities throughout the day we often will not be able to answer phone calls throughout the day. The best way to contact us is through email. I check my email 2 to 3 times a day and will do my best to contact you by the end of the day.  I’m sure there will be a lot of questions, from both you and me…    My email is    christianos@leonschools.net   and Ms. Rice’s is   ricec1@leonschools.net .  By using email as your primary means of contact as it will allow us to get back to you in a more timely manner.

(no ruler... no problem...  use an object like a lego, a battery or the short edge of your phone & count the nuber of those objects instead of inches or cm).  Make a chart to show your data.
