What to expect at parent night….
5:00 – 6:00: the school is having an Open House for the community. We are hoping people come and see the beautiful building that Bozeman taxpayers have supported.
6:00 – 6:15: Team Antelope will be meeting in the Cafe. During this short period of time you will hear from your child’s teachers, Mr. Grissom, Mr. Salo (team counselor), and our partnership with PAC and Thrive.
6:20- 6:30: Mr. Eby and Mr. Zuzulock will be giving a tour of the school, specifically the new electives wing so that parents can find their way.
6:35 – 6:45: you can visit your child’s first elective class (see schedule they brought home for this purpose).
6:50 – 7:00: you can visit your child’s second elective class (again, see schedule)
7:05 – 8:00: Team Antelope will be meeting in our science room, F22 in 6th grade hall. During this time your child’s core teachers will get an opportunity to talk with you about how we intend to take care of your child this year in 6th grade. We will also touch on content areas and team specifics such as homework expectations and upcoming field trips. We truly hope you are able to attend, as beginning the year with a handshake and positive communication is what your child deserves from his/her parent-teacher connection.
“Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students, and enthusiastic parents with high expectations.” ~ Bob Beuaprez
It has been 11 full school days.
Eleven days of remembering names and sometimes still getting it wrong.
Eleven days of questions. Of answers. Of repeated directions and pointing to the right place. Of saying yes more than no, of smiling wide to make sure they all see it.
Eleven days of locker growing-pains. Of bringing too much or too little to class. Of making friends and reaching out, even when we aren’t sure.
It has been eleven days of feeling like everything is overwhelming at times. Of being both busy and at the same time, feeling already behind.
In those eleven days, we have worked as a team of 92 individuals, learned each others’ strengths and weaknesses too, and gained an appreciation of the importance of “us” as we head into the year.
In those eleven days, we have thrown frisbees in HE, struggled in Math, inquired in Science, spoke in CA, and collaborated in Social Studies. We have begun to set goals and learning targets that matter to us and fit our needs.
And we have grown. Already.
Week 2 and we are busy building a culture of collaboration within Team Antelope. Students are building comfort around speaking in a group, whether it’s a small group in Math or a larger one in CA.
“The world increasingly relies on people being able to work together to collaboratively solve problems,” says Dan St. Louis, University Park Campus School’s principal. “The problems of today’s society are difficult. No one person is able to solve an issue on their own. You need to be able to work with others to appreciate what they’re saying, push back if need be, but also to be reflective about your own understanding and to be able to build approaches with other people. For us, we’re training kids to do that now.” (Edutopia, May 2016).
Welcome to Team Antelope! Your teachers this year include Mr. Eby (Health Enhancement & Math), Ms. Lorenz (Science & Math), and Mr. Zuzulock (Communication Arts & Social Studies).
6th grade is an incredible year of maturing, gaining responsibility, figuring out the world, and learning. We are so excited to be a part of this journey!
We need your help as we prepare for the upcoming year. Please take a moment to take the short survey for parents/guardians posted here. This will help our team get to know you and your child better.
