• Charged Chromebooks Wanted!

    Posted by Laura Lindquist-Materna on 1/22/2019

    Please charge Chromebooks each night at home so students are ready to get to work each day.  We have seen many Vikings fall out of this routine and it affects not only their learning time, but the whole class misses out on instructional time as we stop to address the issue.  We are incredibly lukcy to have Chromebooks for all of our Vikings, please be responsible with them.  Thanks for your help!

    A huge thank you for taking the time to stop by for conferences! I know life moves pretty fast and schedules are hard to rearrange, but I appreciate the effort you made to visit and discuss all of your student's accomplishments.  If you weren't able to stop in during conferences, please reach out and I am happy to make arrangements to meet with you in the near future.

  • End of Term 2

    Posted by Laura Lindquist-Materna on 11/2/2018

    Today is the official end of term 2.  We will be working on grades for the next couple of days and report cards will be available online soon.  I have asked students to double and triple check student vue in Synergy to make sure that they have all of their work handed in.  I am accepting any late work through Monday, and after that any missing assignments will be entered as zeros.  Just a reminder that our classroom is open every day during lunch periods for students to come in for extra help, or use it for an additional homework time.  We are happy that some of our students use this resource all the time, but many are missing out.  The teachers willingly give up their lunch time to be available for all students.  I also honor requests for small extra credit assignments if the student approaches me, and there is enough time left in the term.  I cannot give an assignment the last week of the term, but leading up to that I am happy to do so for those who take the initiative to be on top of things and are willing to put in some extra work.  Good things to remember moving forward.  Hope you all have a great weekend! :)

    Posted by Laura Lindquist-Materna on 10/29/2018

    A few reminders-

    Term 2 will be ending on this Friday, 11/2.  Grades will be posted and report cards will be available online within 2 weeks.  Student goals will be updated, printed out, and sent home for your convenience.  Time sure does fly when you're having fun!

    Viking University is being held here at Bernotas Middle School this Thursday, 11/1 with the topics being vaping and social media.  It should be a great night to connect with other parents and get some reliable information on both very important topics.  Childcare is provided free of charge for families who need it.  The session runs from 6:30-7:30.  Stop on by and check it out!

    Thanks for all who have returned their conference sheets.  We make an effort to include as many related staff on meetings as possible, and to do that, we need forms returend as quickly as possible.  Please fill out and return to school by Monday if possible- we appreciate your help with this!

  • Conferences Are Almost Here

    Posted by Laura Lindquist-Materna on 10/16/2018

    One of our favorite events of year is just around the corner- get ready for student led conferences!  Please look for information coming home this week to help with planning.  Viking students are highly encouraged to attend conferences with families, and will be facilitating some of the information shared.  Teachers will take a backseat in the process as this is a time to celebrate student achievement and gains in all areas.  We don't have many time slots to offer families, so please try and be as flexible as possible when you receive your information.  We only have 15 minutes for each slot, so please  understand that this is not a lot to work with.  We will do our best to make this a wonderful experience for everyone!
