 Dear Kincaid Families:

 Here it is:  your official back to school letter.  It seems that we said goodbye for the summer only days ago; however, it is time to reconvene for another great year.  I hope your days away have given you time to rest, reflect and rejuvenate.  It has been an enjoyable time for me as I have been able to spend with family at the beach, and Becky and I will both be grandmothers in January. Life changes in the blink of an eye.  Our theme is “Soup”, this year. The key ingredients to making a great soup are to unite, engage, and inspire a team and create a culture of greatness

Links to Use With Your Students

Does your child always want to use your phone, iPad, laptop or tablet to get online and play or watch videos?

Now you can make that time productive and help support your child's educational goals.

At the top of this page is a link to the Student Links. On that page is access to Moby Max, the website mentioned in the letter you received with your class assignments on them. Use this to work on specific skills/lessons that your child's teacher has set for them. Also on this page are links to Tumblebooks and Mackinvia. If your child has been to the STEM lab before they should know how to login to this. If you need help with a login for Mackinvia you can email the STEM lab teacher and she will give you the information. You can also find a link to the STEM website that has lots of links for educational sites. When you can, please visit the typing practice sites to help your child work on their keyboarding skills. This will benefit them in all of their classes for their entire school career.

Remember that when you follow these links you will be leaving the Kincaid website and all students should be supervised when utilizing the Internet.

 

Families can access digital resources associated with the math and literacy learning guides through the Summer Link webpage: www.cobbk12.org/cobblink/.  Students who have not demonstrated grade level proficiency will receive additional resources through local school meetings between parents and the school staff.  Specifically, students will receive math review workbooks focused on select standards and a book to foster independent reading over the summer.
