SMS Message for Friday, April 17th

Happy Friday everyone, this is Mr. Durham from the guidance office of South Middle School.
1) Getting your work turned in is your highest school priority right now. Today midterms are available on infinite campus for you to view.
2) Check our district website for meal schedules, how to get your Chromebook fixed, and much more.
3) Our Challenge for the week is for everyone to do a Fun Kahoot together today @ 2PM. Please join us on our facebook page and look for facebook live. We will also send out a link through text message just before 2 o’clock
4) Finally, Please note: We are changing our format for student work beginning next week. More information to follow and please see our facebook page and website. Students your next two weeks of NTI will be available on Saturday.


Today I want to talk about finding your child’s mid-term grades and how you can see a list of your child’s missing work. Many times we ask our kids if they are caught up and their usual response is yes I’m good or that that they say everything is turned in and life is great. Today, we would like for you to verify that for yourself by looking at Infinite campus with your student. We would like for you to sit down tonight with your child to look at mid-terms and also look for yourself at any missing assignments. Many of you are pros at looking at IC every day to stay on top of your child’s progress. However if you are not a pro then please take these step;
1st: Your child should be very good at logging in to IC. If they have forgotten, then take them to the district website and click on:
IC/student portal of the right side of screen.
Then click Campus Student
Username- is their student ID (approx. 10 digits)
Password- is their initials and six digit birthday
Once in click on three bars top left
Click on grades-find midterm for each class
Then click on three bars top left –click assignments- click missing
If anything is missing click the Red MISSING Button for more information and an email address so you can reach out to that teacher as they are eager to hear from you.
This information will also be on our Facebook page today.
IF you are not connected with infinite campus and need help please email me at
Austin.durham@henderson.kyschools.us

Friday, April 3rd Message from Mr. Austin

Hello South Middle school students and families today is Friday April 3rd 2020. This is Mr. Durham calling to wish you a Feel Good Friday. We very much appreciate all the school spirit that you have shown during our "Rise up" challenge and for this week’s spirit week, by sending in your pictures. We are excited about all the pictures that you guys have sent in and will release this week’s video today around 3 clock so be looking at our Instagram and Facebook to find links to find the video, which is all about the idea that even though you are making sacrifices at your house, you are doing "GOOD" and will do whatever it takes because you are a bulldog and you are resilient!

Your challenge for Friday will be to finish strong and then have a awesome and healthy spring break. We want you to step away from all computer screens and step outside into the sunshine and work hard on your physical and mental health.

See you on April 13th as we return from Spring Break and do what Bulldogs where born
To do, .... FINISH STRONG!

As you go into spring break, make sure you are caught up with all your work. The first 2 weeks of work should have already been turned in. If it has not, reach out to your 1st period teachers to get that turned in. This past week will be week number 3. Make sure that work is caught up. On week 3 and 4, you will turn in assignments to your individual teachers by way of google classroom.

No school until May 1st. Two more weeks of NTI packets.
Remember to have great and safe week of Spring Break and ready to come back to finish Strong
Go Bulldogs!!

April 2nd Message from Mrs. Marshall

Good morning, Bulldogs. This is Mrs. Marshall at South Middle School. Today is Thankful Thursday. It has been said that feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. Today’s challenge is to show gratitude to those who are out there risking their well-being fighting on the front lines of our nation’s most difficult challenge and those who are bravely staying strong through struggles at home. Our first responders, doctors,nurses, maintenance workers, postal workers, gas station attendants, grocery and food service workers, or neighbors and parents who may have lost their jobs, friends who cannot visit family because of quarantines, and others. I challenge you to give them a gift today--the gift of gratitude. Create a message to say thank you to one of those groups or to an individual you know who is exemplifying the Bulldog way---doing what is expected and then a little more to support us regardless of their situation. Get creative with it. Refer to SMS Facebook for details on how to post these.

Some SMS reminders:.
1. Check each one of your teacher’s Google Classroom for your newest assignments.
2. Don’t forget that you can take AR tests from Home now.
3. Grab N Go Meals available Monday, Wednesday and Friday at Chandler, Bend Gate, East Heights, Jefferson and South Heights from 11 to Noon. You don’t have to be a student at that school to receive a meal. Students DO need to be present though to pick up a meal.
4. Go to the district homepage to complete your online registration for next school year.
5. Remember to complete your ILP. You have to submit for it to be counted. These are due by Friday. Any questions just send a message through google classroom.
6. Exciting news that will enhance NTI:
We are opening up a tool called Google Meet for our teachers to have live interaction with
students

Google Meet is an online video conferencing tool that will allow teachers and students to
connect together to answer questions and get help with new learning in a face-to-face
setting.

To ensure the safety of all participants, all Google Meet sessions will be recorded.

If parents do not wish for their child to participate in recorded Google Meet sessions, they
need to contact the school their child attends. You will hear more from our district office
coming soon.

NTI Day 1-10 Turn In Info/ AR Testing

Our Bulldogs have done an outstanding job in our first few days of non-traditional instruction. As we close on our first ten days of NTI, here are the instructions on how to turn in the work for our first 10 days.
#1 For those with Access to Internet:
Each student’s FIRST PERIOD teacher will be creating an assignment in Google Classroom to collect the work. In this assignment, students will upload the answer sheet they were given. Please feel free to add additional pictures/docs of written answers in the assignment. We have asked teachers to have this assignment posted by Friday, March 27th.
#2 For those without Access to Internet:
Please drop off your student’s work on the drop box that will be placed outside the school beginning Friday, March 27th.
#3- Using cell phones to scan work- Using the Iphone "Notes" App, select new, then scan. Scan the work to be turned in and email the scanned doc to the teacher. Android phone users can download the Google Drive app...login to your child's school Google Account, click the large + at the bottom right and choose scan. Share the new scan with your child's teacher on the Google App

Reminder that beginning on March 27, lessons can be found on Google Classroom for each class. These lessons will be uploaded Thursday, March 27 for those that need to download assignments to Chromebooks. If you need to download assignments, this can be done at ANY Henderson County School parking lot or any other place that provides free WIFI.

Students can now take AR tests from Home. Parents, please monitor this to ensure honesty and integrity. Students know how to log on the program and take the test. Students no longer need a password. If the program asks for a password, it means they have a book out of their ZPD zone (meaning the book is too easy which comprises learning). Email or communicate through Google Classroom with your ELA teacher or Mrs. Buley Coomes if you have questions.
