- End-of-Year Checklist
- Please take a moment to look over this document about closing out teams and canvas. It is really useful if you want to save any content from your canvas courses this year and it will help ensure you don’t have issues over the summer with students accessing your teams.

If you are interested in a pursuing a leadership role in our school and/or content area next school year, please consider applying to serve as a content lead teacher, instructional lead teacher, or school-based teacher mentor. Applications should be submitted by June 1, 2021. Principals or the relevant content supervisor will make final selections by June 9, 2021.
|MOSAIC (Sean Jones)||Teachers will replace the Monday work button on their homepage and it would automatically redirect students to our Mosaic/STEM page. The button would be replaced by the enroll code for the first week, then it can be changed to the course url.
It will be best if teachers introduce the task in their closing meetings on Friday. Each assignment will be posted on Fridays so that kids can look at it if they want. Going forward, teachers can remind students the newest one is posted during their closing time on Fridays. Some students may want to have an idea of it in case something hits them during the weekend and they want to collect items.
Follow up– on Tuesday and Wednesday, teachers will take a few minutes in the morning meeting in order to have students share their work. The students may also be filming their project as well and it might be fun to show one of the videos.

|Science (Sean Jones)||
APS now has a K-8 subscription to Generation Genius!!
This is a fabulous resource that has wonderful videos with 5E lesson plans, discussion questions, targeted vocab, reading material, AND assessments.
All searchable by SOL and you generate a direct link for students to the item you want them to see. (no login for students!!).
Login to MyAccess, choose Clevr, then look for the icon.
Teachers, if you are interested in participating in the scientist in the classroom program, please email me.
There are new science standards that have been implemented for K-4, please take a moment to check them out if you teach science. They can be found here. Grades 5 will continue to teach to 2010 science standards for now.
The plan to phase out old standards is here.
If you are having online textbook access issues, please consult this google doc to try to fix it.
There is a form within that can be filled out that goes to central office.
Feel free to join the science office’s canvas course to access resources for your science classroom.

|Wellness and Health (Sean Jones)||Written above as well. Any Oakridge staff interested in taking over a garden bed at Oakridge, please email me or let me know. Thanks to an amazing parent, Roxana Soltero, we have been able to team up with master gardeners as well as Friends of Urban Agriculture. You can grow food with students, or do something different, and you will have the advantage of having an expert help plan and execute it.|
