Dear Parents & Students,

 

 

Thank you for visiting my website.  I hope that you find it helpful and informative.  I will attempt to update this as much as possible. If you have any questions, comments or concerns; please do not hesitate to contact me at kleggio@howell.k12.nj.us.

 

My curriculum includes; desktop publishing, presentations, spreadsheets and coding.  All this will be accomplished in 6th and 7th grade.  The 8th graders will have much greater challenges; they will learn digital picture manipulation, advanced desktop publishing, coding and video/music editing .

 

Computer class is considered one of our  “specials”.  Your child will be in my class 2 out 3 days; if I see them on Monday and Tuesday, I will not see them on Wednesday.  Where the district has switched report cards to trimesters; specials still run on quarters and semesters.  6th and 7th grade students will take each special for one quarter.  8th graders will have only 2 specials each for a semester.  Another facet, that has not changed in the specials area is grading.  We are currently not on the standards based report cards.  Therefore, I have 4 categories for grading all of which carry a 25% weight; daily participation, classwork/homework, assessments & multimedia.  If your child is missing an assignment, the grade will be a 0 with an M in the corner, meaning they can make it up.  If there is no M on the grade, they may not make up that assignment.

 

 

Thank you for your time,

Kristanne Leggio
