EINSTEIN MIDDLE SCHOOL WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2017 #10
TODAY WE HAVE PERIODS 1, 3, and 5!
SEPTEMBER IS PREPARED MONTH: “Preparedness prevents peril.” Unknown
Einstein’s ASB is proud to host Erin Jones this Friday morning for a kick off assembly for our school year. Erin has been in education for the past 25 years in a variety of roles. She ran for State Superintendent in the 2016 cycle, because she believed we needed someone with long and effective experience in public education to be a voice for both students and educators. She was the first Black woman in the history of WA to run for statewide office, and lost that race by 1%. Many 8th graders might remember Erin from our Future Fest assembly last year. We loved her message so much, we invited her back!
We will be practicing for safety in case of a fire TODAY during 5th period: We practice together in an organized way so that we can all be safe in the event of a real emergency. It is very important for students to remain quiet and to follow all adult directions during any drill. Your teachers will be working with you in order to make sure you know what to do during the drill. Let’s work together in order to make sure we all practice for safety.
New STEM club for girls! Shorewood students will be running a special 7-week long STEM club just for girls from September 27 through November 7. We will be building and programming a vex robot, learning the basics of code, designing an object to 3D print using CAD (computer aided design) and at our last meeting, hearing from a panel of women about their experiences in STEM. Space is limited. If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The club will be run through Hang Time.
Excited for clubs to start? Bring your Student ID to the Hang Time Table at lunch any day this week to make sure you are signed up and get some candy! Must be signed up by the start of Hang Time on 9/26.
Einstein Students! Remember our ON TIME ON TASK behavior expectation and be on time for classes. More than 1 unexcused tardy will result in Tardy Tank. Walk with a purpose and get to class on time. You can do it!
BACK TO BUSINESS PAPERWORK: Last call for mandatory paperwork required from all students. Please return the student information update forms that were given out at back to business. Please return the individual user consent form for computer usage. If you are in 7th grade please also return the yellow health form. There are turn in bins in the office. Other optional forms include residency questionnaire, PTSA membership, free and reduced lunch application and sports forms. We would like all these forms returned by September 30.
CHOICE RESIDENCY APPLICATION: If you live in another city other than Shoreline, you will need to have requested a choice transfer request with your home district in order to attend Einstein. Please go to your home school district and request release from them via their transfer form so that we can be in compliance with the state! If you or your parents have any questions about this, please ask Mrs. Buchanan 206-393-4731.
We have a new option for students during lunch - Quiet Lunch! This is an option for students during both lunches, and is a place for students to be in a quiet setting to read a book, finish homework, use computers for classwork or printing, or to just be in a quiet place during our lunch time. It is in room B-2 every day. Please come directly to the room at the start of lunch. If you are bringing lunch, you can quietly settle in. If you are buying lunch, you’ll get a pass to head to the cafeteria and get your lunch.
Tiger Tutoring begins Tuesday, September 26th: What is Tiger Tutoring? It's a great place to come after school and get homework help from Einstein teachers and high school tutors. Also, if you have a group assignment to work on for class, it's a perfect meeting place for you and your partners.
Where is Tiger Tutoring? Check in with 'Hang Time' in the cafeteria right after school, then we'll walk together to the library. When is Tiger Tutoring? Tuesdays and Thursdays after school, from 3:00 to 4:30.
Who is invited? All students that have classwork or homework to work on!
