Good morning and welcome to week 2! I hope all of you had a great weekend.
So with our first week behind us, have you started developing a system to help you
stay organized? If you are worried about staying organized, email me or one of our
terrific counselors! We can help you develop a system!
Students and parents...your feedback is essential. Over this next week, I would love to
hear from you. Is the amount of work appropriate? Is the difficulty level of the
classes challenging but doable? Are you and your child able to find all of the
required materials and assignments? What can we do to help? Please call the school
or email me and we can get to work.
There is a great organizational tool out there on our website, coupevillewolves.org.
Have you checked it out yet? Let me show you what it is and how to find it!
When you click on the logo for your school, you are provided with choices of each
grade level. When you click on your appropriate grade level, a new page will pop up.
At the top of that page, you will see a “Weekly Assignments” box. In that box you will
find another link. This one will take you to the Weekly Checklist of required work. The
idea here is that you can print this out, put it on your fridge, and keep up with all of
the requirements for each class. Remember HS students to check the elective list
too! Having two of my own kids that I am responsible for teaching at home, I know
how handy a checklist can be. I hope you all find it helpful!
Have you been involved in, or want to be involved in the COupeville Middle and High
School FFA Chapter? Well Mr. Felgar is creating a Google Classroom for Virtual FFA!
There usually is a National FFA Convention where 5,000-6,000 students nationwide
travel to Indianapolis, Indiana to attend. This year, it is being held virtually, and
Coupeville Members will get to attend! Chapter officers will have another activity
coming up...painting the rock! If you are interested email Mr. Felgar and he will get
you the class code! Look for more FFA info in future morning announcements!!
CMHS Dad Joke of the Day:
What did Yoda say when he saw himself in 4K?
Words of Wisdom:
Carrie Saxon Perry, a former mayor of Hartford, Connecticut, was the first female African-American mayor of a major U.S. city. Her role models were the women in her family - women she thought were strong - her mother, her grandmother, and her aunt. When she was young, they taught her to persevere. They taught her not to give up when things get tough, to keep trying, and, if necessary, to try again.
Their words of encouragement inspired Ms. Perry throughout her life. She worked hard and overcame challenges to become a powerful, effective leader in the community. Listen to these wise words:
Fall seven times, stand up the eighth time.
Today, ask yourself if you are letting anything keep you down. If the answer is "yes", get up and try again! If you need help with something, ask a trusted adult. With something to think about, this is Mrs. Ford. Make it a great day ... or not. The choice is yours.
