I have some personal news to share: this is my final year running the after-school program at Culler. I know the program will continue to do great things and also continue to grow! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the last almost five years!
With that being said, the last day of our CLC program will be May 24th.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.
Hello Cougar Families!
Our last athletic season is wrapping up with the All City Track Meet held at Lincoln High. The dates of this meet are May 6th and 7th after school! If you have any questions regarding this, please get in contact with me. Otherwise, the track athletes will be given plenty of info before.
I want to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to all the parents/guardians of all our sports teams throughout the 2021-22 school year! There were so many great moments, and I appreciate all your efforts to get your son or daughter where they need to be. Please also tell your athlete at home I really appreciate them as well. Their effort and hard work all year was awesome!!
Lastly, if you have any questions about the 2022-23 athletic school year, please feel free to get a hold of me and I’ll help you get those answers to your questions.
THANKS AGAIN FOR A GREAT YEAR AND AS ALWAYS….
Culler AD and Health/PE Teacher
The end of the school year is approaching and that means that it is time to return books to the school library. To see the titles that your student needs to return before the end of the year follow these steps:
The fifth and final piece of Digital Citizenship is Access and Evaluation. Students have learned how to search for information effectively online, and how to evaluate online sources. Students also learned how audience, purpose, and perspective can influence media sources. Discuss at home what your favorite sources of reliable information are, and encourage your student to think critically about what they read online.
Students can receive extra help with any of their assignments through our after school CRC. It is held most days after school from 3:10-4:00. If your child is missing assignments, now is the time for them to turn them in before the end of the year. You can contact the school or have your student talk with one of their ELL teachers for more information.
All ELL students have the opportunity to attend summer school at Culler this summer. The dates are June 6-July 1 from 8:00-3:00. The morning consists of students rotating through academic areas while the afternoon will consist of enrichment activities provided by CLC. Breakfast, lunch and transportation are all provided.This is an excellent way for students to continue learning English through the summer. To sign up, have your child ask for a form from their ELL teachers or in the front office.
We did it! Three weeks left in 6th grade! End-of-the year tips for students:
It’s been a difficult whirlwind of a year. I am so proud of this class, and of you for raising such fine young people. From elementary school to the beginning of middle school through the end of the year, we experienced a lot of newness, and with that came much angst. Sometimes we breezed through together, other times we waded through it until we worked it out. No matter what, though, we did it all together. I want you to know that your kids are the bright light in a very tough year, and that is due in large part because of you. I have valued your partnership, willingness to voice your needs & opinions, and undying love for your children. It has been my honor to serve you and the students of the Class of 2028.
WOW!! This year as flown by, with only 3 weeks left in 7th grade here are some reminders for the end of the school year.
I am so proud of all we have accomplished this school year. Get ready because 8th grade will go just as fast and we have a lot to do to get ready for high school!
Happy Summer Class of 2027!
Hello 8th grade families,
This will be the last update I have for you for this year. It’s been a whirlwind of a three years, and I can’t believe your 8th graders are getting ready to head to high school. The pandemic really threw a wrench in these last three years but a lot of our 8th graders have shown resilience and toughness to get through it. I know that they will use that resilience to get through high school as well. My last presentation to your 8th graders this quarter will be in regards to post-high school plans. Keep a look out for a booklet that I will be sending home called Know How 2 Go. There’s A LOT of useful information in there that will answer a lot of questions on going to college, and what your students can do after high school. If you have any questions in regards to high school or this last month of school, please don’t hesitate to reach out- firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s been a pleasure to work with your students over these last three years, and if they ever need anything while in high school, I will always be available.
We wanted to alert you that starting on May 31st, the district will switch the student information system to the Summer School term. This means, through May 30th, you can review final grades in the ParentVUE Grade Book tab. After the 30th, you can access final grade information from the Documents tab or Course History tab.
Culler students will return their Chromebooks at the end of this school year and recover the same device when they return next fall (6th and 7th grade). As the end of the year draws closer, please make sure your student can locate the charger (2 pieces), the bag/carrying case, and the Chromebook that was issued to them at the beginning of the year. More details will be shared with students and families through official communications in the coming weeks.
