In this classroom, the students (the superheroes) are cared about. My goal is to encourage the students to be the best person they can be and support them in every way. I promise to do my best to help them learn and grow both inside the classroom and outside the classroom. The students have wonderful gifts, strengths, and talents and I can’t wait for them to share them all with their classmates and I. From what I have seen so far, they are unique and wonderful!

Contact me: Please feel free to contact me throughout the school year. I want to be your partner in supporting your child in any way. ClassDojo is the easiest and fastest way to contact me, however, feel free to email me at any time as well. Email – mgillis@scgstl.org

Guidelines and Expectations

Attendance

  • Grades PK-2

 Teachers will post a picture at 8:00 am in the “Class Dojo” app and ask everyone to “like” the image. Teachers will ask for responses from 8am-9am. This will create a thread that is dated and time-stamped for the day.

 

  • Grades 3-8

Teachers are using the Google Platform to take attendance.  Teachers will post a Google Form document and name it for the day.  Teachers will add a short answer question that reads, “Please type your name to indicate that you are present.” Teachers will leave this survey open to accept responses from 9am-10am. After that time, they will close the survey, and they can see all their responses.

 

Academic Instructions

  • Classrooms will utilize “Class Dojo, or Google Classroom”. Please see your child’s class webpage for specifics.
  • Students are expected to check assignments by 9am and submit them as prescribed. Each teacher and assignment will have specifications.
