Seventh graders Jaxen and Jazlynn Dennis and their mom Sarah Dennis got some valuable tips navigating the Infinite Campus Parent Portal and WCMS Parent Hub from 21st Century Coordinator Katherine Kidd at the first Parent Skill Building Session held November 13.
WCMS Technology Resource Teacher Juliet Perkins shared a slide show with parents remotely that included Google Classroom on November 13.
Wayne County Middle School is reaching out to parents by providing a series of Parent Skill Building Sessions to help them navigate their child’s virtual learning at home.
“Parents we realize the frustrations you have with understanding how to keep up with your child’s academic progress,” said 21st Century School Coordinator Katherine Kidd. “We know you would appreciate a little guidance. Our goal is to provide you with tools to help monitor your child’s academic progress during this unprecedented time. Being informed is a powerful thing, so please join us.”
Next month, another session will be planned for Monticello Elementary parents, grandparents and guardians who are interested in helping their children with Science Fair projects. Materials will be handed out to help families display their experiments after being given help on their Scientific Method question. Unfortunately, there were no sign ups for the first scheduled session on November 19th.
Most recently, the Middle School had two successful sessions of the first Parent Skill Building Session that focused on the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.
“Thank you to the parents and grandparents that attended and I hope you received valuable information that will better serve you and your family,” said Wayne County Middle School Technology Resource Teacher Juliet Perkins, who shared helpful links and resources for those who attended. “Please feel free to contact me or Mrs. Kidd, or any of your child's teachers if you have any questions.”
The Wayne County Middle School has created a very informative Middle School Parent Hub website designed specifically for parents. It covers each team in sixth, seventh and eighth grades, including teacher websites and their email addresses so they can easily be contacted.
Below are links to the slideshow and the Parent Portal cheat sheet to help parents navigate the program. The slideshow has various tutorials and resources embedded within it as well. Perkins also included a couple of other links below for easy access to the Parent Portal and Parent Hub, specially designed for the Middle School. If parents have other suggestions for what should be included in the Parent Hub, feel free to share those ideas as well.
