Week of March 20th

Bonjour!

It’s hard to believe Spring Break is only a week away, and that the end of third quarter is a mere four days after we return from Spring Break! My, how time flies!

Please note that students will have some time available in the computer lab this week during class, though not every day this week during class. Students will have no computer lab time during class the week we return from Spring Break, as they will be working in groups to prepare and present a culminating Sundjata the Lion King Griot Performance on Thursday, April 6th. This means that students who are behind in their assignments may need to do some work at home this week or over Spring Break to get caught up. So, please check Synergy to monitor your child’s academic progress. https://parent-portland.cascadetech.org/portland/, and see what he or she needs to do to be successful for third quarter.

For second semester, I am focusing heavily on corrective writing, as scores on daily assignments and writing work samples indicate that conventions–spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation–are where students need the most practice. Students will always have the opportunity to revise their work and receive a higher score, as long as it is not submitted too close to the end of the quarter.

It was great to see so many parents at the Un-Auction this past Saturday! Thanks so much for supporting our school!

Congratulations to the Beaumont Ambassadors for placing first in the Clackamas Community College Instrumental Jazz Festival!

Teacher Planning Day: Friday, April 7th

There will be no school for students on Friday, April 7th, so teachers can complete third quarter grades and plan for fourth quarter.

Spelling Bee

I will be coordinating Beaumont student participation in this year’s spelling bee. Please let me know if this is something in which you would like your child to participate. Core teachers will hold written spelling contests in their classes, then the school will hold a written spelling contest for class winners, then the district will hold a contest among school-wide winners. Grades 6-8 will compete in Division II. Here is  a link with more information: oregon_spellers_brochure_v15

Enrichment Project Options

While some students feel that their class workload is just right, other students greatly benefit from enrichment projects in addition to regular class activities. To meet this need, I’ve put together several project options below for your child. These options would be considered extra credit assignments to be done outside of class, with point-values assigned based on the quality, care, and thoughtfulness given to their creation and presentation. Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to talk more about these enrichment project options. https://mscoyne7thgradecore.wordpress.com/enrichment-project-options/

Restorative Justice

In my classes, I utilize restorative justice practices to build community and handle any behavioral issues that might occur. From time to time, we will have talking circles, to discuss various academic, social, or classroom issues. The goal is to help students talk through and understand how their actions impact others in our community, either positively or negatively, and construct ways to be good classroom citizens.

Core Unplugged

Cell phones and devices are not allowed in my core classes, and should be stored in student lockers prior to class.

Planners

Students write in their planners at the beginning of each week in my class, and in other classes. Please encourage students to bring their planners with them to all classes so they are fully aware of what assignments are coming down the pike.

Volunteers Needed in Office and at Recess

Beaumont has a great need for volunteers to help out in the Office and at Recess. This year, Beaumont does not have the TA elective, so office support is in short supply, especially in the morning. Volunteers are also needed to help supervise the huge number of students at recess. Please contact the front office at 503.916.5610 to get involved.
