    This website is my class newsletter.

    Please check it DAILY for updates.

     

    Parent Announcements:  

     

    -(5/22) Early dismissal (12:20) Thursday and Friday...  Please be on time.  No Backpacks on Thursday or Friday.

    -(5/19)  We will be having our 5th grade farewell walk on Monday, May 20th at 8:45. Please come join us by lining up outside the building and waving farewell to our 5th graders.  

    -(5/19) Please remember that you can check Junior out for the day after our Promotion Celebration on Wednesday at 9AM.

    -(5/3)  Dates to remember...    Friday, May 17 Fifth grade fun day on the field.   Monday, May 20th  Autograph book signing day.  Wednesday, May 22 Fifth grade Promotion Celebration... 9-10:30 in the Cafe (students may be checked out afterward).  

    -(4/27)  FAST Math test Thursday, May 2nd. 

    -(4/27) We have a Math test scheduled for chapter 17 on Monday the 29th and a Science test scheduled on Monday May 6th.

    -(4/20) Ms. Bailey, our Media Specialist, just wanted to let everyone know that yearbooks are still available for purchase at $40 each through the online website (YBPay.com). Please use the yearbook ID Code 15235924 or search Conley Elementary School.

    -(4/19) On Friday April 26th Coach Vance and Coach Kev will be taking our 5th graders on a neighborhood bike ride/walk.  Please look for an email about it today.  Here is the opt-out form mentioned in the letter.  (4/25)  If your child brings their own bike, place it in the bike rack near parent drop off... Just pull up and park by the sidewalk to unload.  DO NOT unload from the BUS LANE.

    -(4/18)  Mom & Dad....   Look for two important letters from school tomorrow on colored paper.  One has the dates for 5th grade activities for the end of the year and the other is an order form for class tee-shirts.  Here is a pdf of them(4/25)  The order has been sent in. No late orders will be taken.   

    -(4/18)  Parents...  I'm sending home the graded chapter 16 math tests tomorrow.  Please look for them and understand that our review questions on Wednesday were the exact questions they had on the test.  Scores are in the gradebook (except for 4 scores, 2 absent, 2 not done).

    -(4/10)  Parents....   It's course request time.  The Middle Schools around the county are asking us to distribute and complete course request forms for our rising 5th graders.  We can not do this until a couple of things get done...   1- You must complete your address verification for 6th grade by submitting the information to Ms Porter our registrar.  Porterc@leonschools.net     

                                    2- Contact your teacher by email or note to let us know what school YOU ARE ZONED FOR. This may not be the school you want to attend, but the zone in which you live.  

                                    3- If you have already filed with and been accepted into a magnet program, please let your teacher know which school that is.

    -(4/11) See  this note from Ms. Porter (originally sent out last month) for the details dealing with the message above.   

    -(3/22) Beginning Monday, 3/25, any work turned in without a name on it will find its way to the trash can.  This is in keeping with preparation for middle school.  Next year teachers will have 160-180 students a day....  no time to track down a missing name.

    -(2/13)  Starting next week, 2/19, I will not be providing pencils and pens in the classroom.  Since the beginning of the year, we have burned through over 1500 pencils, 300 pens and 800 cap erasers.  To put that in perspective, consumption for the previous 2 school years TOGETHER totaled the amount we used in the first 6 months of this year.  I am out of pencils and pens.  I will not be purchasing anymore.  Starting next week, Junior will have to provide his/her own writing implements.  This is not a request for donations to the classroom.  It would be wasteful to continue to provide resources that are not being used wisely.  Please make sure that your child comes prepared with a supply of writing tools.

    -(2/12)  A reminder...  being absent does not remove the responsibility of turning in work for the day your child is absent.  All work is listed on the website.  A PDF of the work is linked on the website. It is your child's responsibility to get that work turned in when they return.  I afford an additional 2-3 days for that to happen, taking into consideration situations where they are unable to get it done while they are out.  After that a grade of 0 (z) is put into the grade book.

     

    -(1/4)  Remember, late work is accepted, but there are 2 penalties that are associated with it.  The first penalty is lower test and quiz scores, which come as a result of opportunities to practice new skills being missed; teams practice for big games BEFORE the game... not after.  The second is a 10% reduction in score as a result of work being late.  One constant in life is that when you are late (bills, work, business dealings, relationships, cooking dinner...) there are natural consequences that must be dealt with.  One of our main goals this year is getting Junior ready to deal with 6 teachers, who will each have 150-180 students, next year. 

     

    --(8/9) If you live near the school and want your child to walk home you'll need to fill out this "Walker Verification" form.  

     

    -(8/09)  Because Ms. Quisenberry and I will be involved in teaching activities throughout the day. We often will not be able to answer phone calls. 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. Quisenberry’s is   Quisenberryl@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.  I communicate only through school email, school land-line phone or my school Zoom account. 

    -(/8/9) Click here for the Orientation Day PowerPoint we veiwed in class on Friday.

    -(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.*****

    Having difficulty logging in to your child's classlink account (or FOCUS) at home..?

    The process is simple:

    1. Go to the school or LCS website,
    2. Click on the Classlink link.
    3. When prompted for username or email, use their student email, which is their student ID (found on your Portal account) which in most cases starts with 171.... or 1800..... and is 9 digits in length, followed by @edu.leonschools.net        For example:    180001234@edu.leonschools.net
    4. When prompted for their password, it is the same 5 (or for a few 6) digit PIN they use at school.  

    That should get you in to their ClassLink account... If you have more than one child who is a student using a computer at home, I suggest NOT saving the login information in your browser as it will make it next to impossible for the 2nd or 3rd children to log in to their own accounts.

    Email me if you have need for their ID number and PIN....

     

    If you have not already, ​please show this video to your class TODAY to get them geared up:
