I will be holding optional class meetings on Wednesday, March 25th for those students who want to ask questions, see code demos or simply say "Hello". I will be combining students into two teams...one for APCS Principles and one for APCSA. All students should be looking for an invitation to join these new teams. The meeting schedule will be:
NOTE the new meeting times:
APCS Principles team meeting: 1:30 pm
APCSA team meeting: 4:00 pm
For specific lesson plans & assignments: go to the dropdown menu for the specific class and select course announcements or lesson plans.
Hope everyone is doing well. -- pam
I am going to hold class meetings on Microsoft Teams tomorrow, Wednesday, March 18th. Students know how to log into their Teams account and go to the general feed to join the meeting. This will be an opportunity for students to say "Hello", ask questions about the assignment, have me demo code, etc. I will even introduce them to my dog, Jax. I will record the session for those students who can't attend at that time. The schedule for Wednesday is:
1st period: 9:00 am
2nd period: 11:00 am
4th period: 12:30 pm
6th period: 2:00 pm
7th period: 3:00 pm
As always, email me with any questions or concerns. Take care!
As we move into a TeleSchool format for awhile, I want to make sure that students and parents know how to get in touch with me. The best option is to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be available during normal school hours and will respond as quickly as possible.
Curriculum: I will be posting assignments on Google Classroom on Mondays. I will also be hosting virtual meetings through Microsoft Teams for the students to ask questions and see a coding demonstration. These meetings will be recorded so if a student can't attend at that time, they can refer to the video when it is convenient. My students are very familiar with this format. My plan is to have a reserved and consistent time each week for these meetings. I am still working out the best schedule for these meetings. An update will be coming soon.
Bulk emails to parents and students will be sent through Infinite Campus. These emails go to the students' "fcstu.org" email address. Parents, please remind your child to check this email address through outlook.
As always, I am here to help and support. If any student or parent has questions or concerns, please contact me.
Believe it or not, it is time to start thinking about classes for the next school year. If you are a student currently enrolled in a CS course at Chattahoochee, your teacher has already talked with you and put in a recommendation for next year. Just verify that the course is showing up on your tentative schedule and you are good!
If you are wanting to take an APCS course next year, you must have taken Intro to Digital Tech. If this course is already on your transcript, you should be able to select APCS Principles or APCSA. If you haven't take IDT, you have two options at this point.
If you have specific questions, please email me or stop by G127. I will also be talking with parents and students on Tuesday evening, February 11th at the AP & Elective night.
Students: If you have been absent from class this week, you can go to your Microsoft Teams page and find coding instructional videos in your class feed. Hope this helps!
Check google classroom for an adjustment to the codehs assignment.
The Chattahoochee curriculum nights are just around the corner. 9th and 11th grade curriculum night is Monday, August 26th @ 6:30 pm. 10th and 12th grade curriculum night is on Wednesday, August 28th at 6:30 pm. I look forward to meeting everyone!
