It has been a busy week at WJMS! I finished training our new students to use their Google accounts, Book Club had it’s first meeting, and I had an evening class for parents to learn about Parent Portal. We had approximately 30 families to sign up but I only had about half that number to attend due to the weather. I can understand parents who may not want to venture out when we are under a thunderstorm warning….with their kids! I appreciate those who braved the nasty weather to get their Parent Portal accounts set up and to see what the program is all about. They were a great group and they had some good questions to ask. In addition to showing them how they can check on their child’s grades in Parent Portal and contact their child’s teacher, I also showed the group how to access Renaissance Home Connect. This program will help them to keep track of their child’s reading and testing within Accelerated Reader. I also encouraged them to visit their child’s school website to view teacher websites and to check for upcoming news. I hope the evening was beneficial for all parents who attended.
