August 22-August 26  

Students, Parents and Guardians,

     I hope everyone is adjusting to the new school year. I need to remind everyone of a few rules and procedures. Car riders are not allowed in the building until 7:10. Please review the county policy on dress code. Girls wearing jeggings and leggings should wear a top long enough to touch the fingertips. Also, blouses or shirts that are sheer in any way are not allowed. Please review applicable punishment for violation of the dress code. 

     We worked on Common Core Standard RL6.1/RL6.1 (inferencing) this week. After working as a group, then with a partner, students completed a inference worksheet independently. Many struggled so we will continue to work this week on the skill. If you see a low score on this skill in INOW, please understand we are still working on this. I hope to see improvement this week!

     If you are interested in ordering Coosa Fan Gear, please get your order in this week! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 256-377-1490   or   rjones@coosaschools.org.

 

Thanks!

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,

    We survived the first week of school! Students are learning to change classes in the two minutes between classes. It has been a learning experience, but we are getting better each day. Earlier this week, the students met in the first assembly. Mr. Stover reviewed the cell phone policy and dress code. Just a reminder that these policies will be enforced. You may view these in File Manager under 2016-2017 Information. Also, this week's homework assignments have been posted on File Manager. Please note the dates for assignments. Students have checked out and are to begin reading the two outside novel assignments for summative assessments due later this nine weeks (more on the directions later!) Classes will also receive language textbooks this week. I apologize for the condition; however, it will be used as a resource tool. Soft drinks and candy will be sold on Fridays as a fundraiser. (This is the only time these items are allowed for middle school students.) If you have not returned the enrollment packets please do quickly! Lastly, for our car riders....our doors will not be unlocked until 7:10 in the mornings. Please do not leave your child outside until the doors open. Should you have any questions, please contact me at 256-377-1490 or rjones@coosaschools.org. (If you need to meet with me, Wednesdays have been set aside as days for conferences.) Have a great week!

 

Sincerely,

Rachel Jones

August 8 - August 12  

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,

     Welcome to a new school year! We have a lot to do this week, so hang on! Our first week will be devoted to getting to know rules and procedures, knowledge of standards, but most importantly, each other.

     I will assign the first five vocabulary words on Wednesday of this week. Students will be tested on these words the following Wednesday. Not only do they need to know the meaning of the words, but the correct spelling as well. Please work nightly on these words. You will find these words plus a syllabus for the nine weeks on "File Manager".

     If you should need to contact me, please call 256-377-1490 or rjones@coosaschools. org. I am looking forward to a great year!
