  • BEYOND THE CLASSROOM (Learning from April 6, 2020 until the end of the 2020-2021 school year)


    Thank you for your patience during this time. As we are all in uncharted territory, we are all working in an attempt to make the rest of this at-home learning experience as user-friendly as possible. In order to aide in that process, the 7th Grade English Teachers (along with several other core subject teachers within SMS) will be using a program called APEX Learning. In the traditional school setting, this program is used at several high schools in our county as well as for the St. Clair County Virtual Preparatory Academy. Because of the plethora of resources, as well as the self-guided progression that the program offers, it is a great tool for students in these current, non-traditional times as well. This program provides in depth lessons using key terminology, skills practice after each lesson, and quality assessments. There are many tools available such as identifying the lesson's key terms, a study guide option, and a "text to speech" feature within the lessons and assessments. I have attached a document/link (see below) with more information on this program. Students should have received their Apex username and password from their math teachers (through email). This is the password they will use to access all of their assigned Apex coursework. If your student has not received this login information by Tuesday morning (April 7, 2020), please send me an email and I will send this information out. If you do not have internet access at home, Charter Spectrum is currently offering 60 days of free internet service throughout St. Clair County!  We will also be providing printed packets that cover the same standards for students who have no internet access. If you have any additional questions, or need help with APEX, feel free to email me and I will be happy to help.
