    General Information
    Our classroom is a eMints Classroom   The students like to say we are "Powered by Google".  We have 16 Chromebooks and 4 Desktops and use Google Chrome, Drive, Classroom, as well as other resources to learn. If a student has access to the Internet at home they will be able to work on all class projects at home.  Your child should know his/her login information (as a reminder user names have birthdays and passwords have lunch pins.)
    Working together as a team for children is the best avenue to success.  Friday Folders come home weekly with student work and information.  Please check these and sign that you have seen the information.  I also will send reminders through Remind (click here to sign up).
    Each week newsletter are emailed to parents, sent through Remind and a printed copy is placed in Friday Folders.  These newsletter will contain a weekly calendar of events  in the classroom, in the building, and relevant district events.  If you are not currently receiving a copy of newsletter through one of these methods, please contact me at almsm@branson,k12.mo.us   
    You can also view recent newsletters HERE. 

    Assignment Books

    All Intermediate students are required to keep an assignment book. (There is no cost for the planner this year.)  We will take time each day to write our assignments in them, and you will be able to keep track of the work your child has for the week by looking at them.  It will be a record of all work assigned during the day not just homework. We will also be tracking attendance and behavior. I will do not require parents to sign assignment books each night unless we see that it will be beneficial for the student.


    Breakfast Club is hosted each school morning from 8:00-8:30 by our Interventionists.  If your child is struggling with a concept, forgot homework at school or had a busy night before PLEASE  encourage them to attend Breakfast Club, any staff member can help your find the room and get settled.
