Please use this link to go to Town Hall at 12:15 today (Wed 3/3). You will need to attend to get important information about our school. See you there!
I am not here today, so for Advisory, please work on any incomplete tasks in your Task Dashboard.
Have a great weekend!
Please remember to open your school Gmail and open the attendance email so you can submit your daily attendance.
Remember you are to do any makeup work or any currently due assignments. You need to log into your teachers’ Zooms to see the tasks; it might also be posted in Slate in their course blog.
HMU on Remind or at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. I’ll have office hours from 9 - 10:30 and 1-2:30 if you want to say hi or need support! Also, I’ll be calling those who still need HOS 2 conferences.
Enjoy this flexible school day!
Here are our Slides for Advisory. Please put them in your Starred folder in Drive so you can have easy access to them. Feel free to share them with your grown-ups!
Teachers to Students: Help students so they respect you Be mindful of students’ lives outside of school and don’t give a lot of hw Watch personal space Be a good listener
Students to Teachers: Listen to what the teacher has to say Pay attention to class since teachers spend a lot of time planning Speak up and advocate for yourself
Students to Students Value friendships and relationships Don’t judge - we will see each other every day! Know your limits - don’t force yourself into others’ private lives/respect personal boundaries
Students to Classroom Do group projects Don’t talk at the same time Be mindful of school property Watch what you say - you don’t know what’s going on in other people’s lives
What does the word “respect” mean to you?

Welcome, my Year 1 Advisees! I am so excited to meet you on Tuesday! I am sure you have a lot of questions, but the good news is that if you are reading this, you have done one of THE MOST IMPORTANT things at Building 21 - you have logged into Slate. This is our dashboard for everything, from submitting work to scheduling appointments with counselors, this is your one-stop shop.
A little about me: This is my 23rd year of teaching, but that doesn’t mean anything unless I serve you well THIS year. I teach Year 1 English, so I could also be your ELA teacher. I love working at Building 21. In fact, I am a founding staff member, meaning I helped start the school in 2015. Before that, I taught at Raub and Harrison-Morton Middle Schools. Before that, I taught in Virginia and Russia. I even spent time working at an international non-profit in Washington, DC, but I missed teaching too much. I also have written two books and am working on my third. I love yoga, reading, hiking, ice cream, the beach, and good pizza. I live with my husband in Emmaus. The rest of our family lives in other parts PA and Maryland.
When we have Advisory in person. I love to bring breakfast, like pancakes and sausage to celebrate together. My last Advisory graduated two years ago, so I am excited to be YOUR advisor now.
Please log into our Advisory Zoom on Tuesday 9/8 by 8:15 AM so we can get to know each other and start our work together. Here is our Advisory Zoom Room link.
In the meantime, rest up and have some fun. You can reach out to me here: email@example.com
