January 2015 -- Welcome Back!

Welcome back.  I hope everyone had a well rested and refreshing break.  The grade level links to the left have been updated with what students are working on now and in the near future. 

A special welcome to Ms. Melissa Mercer.  She is a MUN intern who will be spending time with us from now until Easter.  She has already fit in well and we are looking forward to having her around.

Remind 101
Communication with Remind 101

This year I am trying a new approach with communication.  I am using a program called Remind 101 that allows me to send text messages and emails to class subscribers without sending my information or receiving anyone else's.  I am inviting parents to subscribe as well.  So if you, or your child would like to receive reminders/notifications from me please follow the steps for the specific class under the links below, including homeroom.  Please note, you cannot reply to the messages and if you'd like to contact me, the easiest way is still through email at 

Hello and Welcome

Hello to all new and returning students and parents.  I am in the midst of revising my webpage to fit this year.  A lot of the information is the same but I will be working to update my page. 

On the left of this screen you will find your class. The classes will be updated to include the units we are working on in class. Click on the course and you will find any homework, assignments or upcoming tests or quizzes.
If you would like to contact me my email address is or you can click on the email button to the left.
In addition, there are buttons to help you find helpful language arts links, a documents list and information about Ultimate.

Thanks and have a great school year!
Ms. B. (rhymes with Frisbee!)

Laptops and Notebooks:
Students who use laptops or Netbooks in class need to have the software for printing in the classroom.  The software can be found at . Students should select the map of North America and then Canada(English).  Next, select the option to download and type in the product F4400 then follow the steps to download and save.  When asked to connect to the device simply choose the option to do so at a later time.
