Busy Week and We’re Behind!

 This week in our 5th and 6th grade Tech we have tried to figure out an app called “Dojo.” It’s not that we don’t understand it; the problem we have faced is getting the students access. They need their parent’s email.  Why does every company need emails and phone numbers 🙁 ?  Even when parents have signed up and given their emails, the students are still having problems getting access. I like the program but it is not user-friendly.  Unless they make major changes, I will probably go to something different next year.
           We are going to definitely start the blogs this coming week. I promise 7th grade!!!! I know some of you have waited on me. Speaking of the 7th grade, the Cubs have done pretty good in the football area. I hear the same for the girls in volleyball. I have pictures of the 7th grade Cubs, but I wish I had pictures of all of them and of the girls. Check out the picture the boys sent me!
 7th Grade Cubs          This week is homecoming.  What an exciting week!  Activities will be going on and former Electra alumni will be coming to town.  Each day there will be a dress-up day, so be sure to take part in that.  I love this time of year!  So much going on, and a time when people come together.  I know that God must love it too!

I Hope You Have a Great First Day

 

Summer is already over and the first day of school is here!  Where did the summer go?  I hope that all of you had a fantastic summer. Last year’s Techy Tigers are moving across town to a new school, and starting a new chapter in their lives.  Things will start getting a little busier for them, and things may seem somewhat overwhelming yet exciting. Over the summer I had an idea of how I would like the Original Techy Techs to continue blogging with this year’s incoming 6th graders.  I thought it would be neat for them to see what 7th grade life is like, and of course I would love to continue blogging with you.  I’ve talked this over with Gabe, and he’s going to tell you more about it for me.  If you would like to, then just continue as usual.  If you don’t want to take part, tell Gabe or email me at my cub email (Gabe can give it to you if you have forgotten my address), and I will take you off the class roster.  If I have several of you to stay with me, I want to add a 7th grade page with 7th grade events to our site.  If you have pictures that you want me to add or announcements that need to be made, we can make it on that page.  We can add and change it throughout the year.  We can do as much or as little as the group wants.  

I know that the new 6th graders will be a great addition to our website.  I’ve already seen their talent in class last year.  I’m very excited about this year.  With 6th and 7th grade combined abilities,  I’m looking forward to seeing what this year unfolds!
