  • Away From School Week 4: April 13 - 17

    Posted by 7B Cluster Teachers on 4/13/2020 9:30:00 AM

    It is hard to imagine that it has been 1 month since the last time we all were at school. 

    Yet, here we are and into the last cycle of the school year. It is quite obvious at this point that the end of the school year will not be the same as other years whether we end it in school or not. The impact of such an absense will be remembered for years to come. 

    We are glad though, to see how responsible and serious our students are about their education. Despite the struggles and challenges, students are still able to complete their assignments. It inspires and gives teachers hope as we also continue to spend long hours with our job and juggle the responsibilities with maintaining a family.

    Whether you are a parent or a student, please have a conversation with your whole family about the importance of responsibility and fullfilling a role and stepping up in a dire situation. 

    Students- you may not think it is a big deal, but just completing your role with school by turning in your assignments on time is a huge help to your family. You may not play a big role in your family but by not causing worry, it will make your parents' job easier during this difficult time. It may sound strange, but tell them today, that you appreciate the hard work they have done to keep you safe and tell them that you want to make things easier on them by not having them worry about your school work. Please do it, your parents will think very highly of you.

    Parents- As much as we would like to think that students are at an age where they should be more responsible, the truth of the matter is that not all students are the same. Some students are able to be responsible at an early age, while others are late bloomers. Both are completely fine and absolutely normal. Be open to them and tell them how difficult it is to work at your job if you have to (or if you had to) worry about their school work. Like I said to the students- it may not seem like much but having a heart to heart conversation will leave a lasting impact on your children.

    The teachers are working many long hours to providing excellent instruction and if you have any questions please email any of us. The fastest way to reach us is between the hours of 1-3PM. That is our "Student/Parent quick response time". Please do not interpret this as the only time we are doing work. We are constantly working and communicating with other teachers from the school throughout the morning with video meetings. We grade hundreds of online assignments and spend hours creating high quality assignments.

    Good luck and keep up the good work 7B!

  • Away From School Week 3: April 6-10

    Posted by 7B Cluster Teachers on 4/3/2020 3:45:00 PM

    With school appearing farther and farther from returning to normal, we in the 7B hallway miss our old way of life as much as you do. 

    We are trying to maintain constant contact with our students and families. Therefore, on all of our Google Classroom assignments, please drop a comment! We would love to hear back from you! If you are bored, you miss us, if you find some things difficult, just let us know in the comment sections. We have to hear from all of you at least once a week and if we do not, we will personally reach out to you in a phone call. 

    Parents and families, if you have questions, please email us first. We are receiving reports that families are going right to administrators whom are very busy. The first line of contact should be the teachers. Throughout the week, we are next to our computers for many hours a day and are readily available to answer your questions. We also have some families that do not have an updated phone or email from the school directory, so please update us on any changes from your preferred method of communication. 

    Some of us are starting to try virtual sessions. Please be patient as we experiment with this process and getting it started. Check out each blog to see who is connecting. We hope to see you sometime!

  • End of Cycle 5 & Away from School Week 2

    Posted by 7B Cluster Teachers on 3/30/2020 10:00:00 AM

    The Pin Oak Middle School staff met up many times last week and have planned many ways to set up learning away from school.

    Starting Tuesday of this week, students can reach us during our office hours of 1PM-3PM. Families can expect a fast response from any of their 4 core teachers. 

    Even though there has been an interrruption of school, the end of Cycle 5 will be on April 9th. If you have any missing assignments that could only be done at school, take care of that issue by emailing your teacher and ask what to do. 

    Check our individual teacher blogs for any updates on their classes throughout the week.
