Philo Junior High School - Awarded Straight A Grant!

As we begin the 2014-2015 school year, we are going to be incorporating personalized learning in every aspect of your student’s education. Late last school year; Philo Junior High School was awarded the Straight A Grant through the state of Ohio. The Straight A Grant is designed to achieve significant advancement in student achievement and drive more resources to the classroom.

With the awarded funds, the Philo Junior High School will be able to loan each student an Apple iPad for the entire Academic Year! By embracing this opportunity, both teachers and students will develop skills vital for the 21st century. However, this opportunity means more than that. Students will learn the critical thinking and workplace skills needed to have a successful future. Additionally, our students will have the opportunity to collaborate with others, solve complex problems, develop new forms of communication and leadership skills, and become more productive and motivated!

Miss Watson’s 6th grade Language Arts Class

Aloha! Welcome to sixth grade language arts. Students started off the year completing a reading interest inventory/survey. This will help get the students ready when beginning Accelerated Reader (AR). This program allows students to read independently and take a test on the computer or their iPad. Students wrote a “letter” to themselves about their first week of school. They will get these “letters” back towards the end of the year and write about their 6th grade experience.  They have started on an interactive reading notebook, which will cover the new standards. They will be able to bring this notebook home to use as a study guide for the OAA in late April/early May.  Some things to look forward to during the school year are completing projects, OAA (Ohio Achievement Assessment) practice, doing presentations, and writing on a variety of topics. Homework will be posted on Remind, Progress Book, and on my class website. Be on the lookout for your child’s homework folder. Remind is an app a student can download to their phone or iPad. I can send out reminders about homework and other things. Students will receive a message from me. Check out Watson’s Window, my class website. You can find the website in the Philo Junior High School section of the Franklin Local District site.  A final thought: I would like to thank everyone who stopped by during Open House. I know it is going to be a fantastic year.
