Year 8 Whanau – I will be contacting those parents I haven’t seen to make a time to catch up. These visits have been extremely valuable to everyone as we are setting a clear path for your child’s learning. It also gives us far more time to sit down and discuss anything you want to regarding your child and school and how we can all work together to achieve success. I have also really enjoyed getting to know parents and students outside of school, plus there is no time limit.
Year 7 Whanau – I will also be contacting you shortly to make a time to see you all as soon as I have completed my visits with the Year 8 Whanau.
Class Blog- room14cartertonschool2015.blogspot.co.nz. Check us out and I will be putting any info on the blog such as reminders etc, plus what we have been doing at school and in class.
Google docs – your child has their class log-in and can find any homework etc on Google Drive. Plus you can see what they have been doing in class if they are using a device or netbook. We also have 5 new Chrome books to use as well as our other devices.
