Back to School

The start of another exciting school year is just around the corner! Here are some vital back-to-school resources from our website to help you get ready:

 

Outdoors in the Morning

A reminder that students should wait outside on the blacktop behind the middle school in the mornings before school.  Please do not cut through the building to get to the back; instead, please go around the building.  You should only be in the building before 8:07 if you have a pass or have made other arrangements ahead of time.

If it is rainy when you arrive at school, students will be invited to wait in the cafe as we do during the winter months.

Thank you!

 

Audiobooks & Ebooks From the LMTC

If you have a device that can download apps, you should be sure to grab the Destiny Discover app for listening to audiobooks and reading ebooks from the WMS LMTC collection.   Note: please be aware that there was a name change for this app in August 2016 (the old name was Brytewave) - in all other ways the video below is accurate. 

To use this app, you select Waunakee Middle School and enter your Destiny username (student ID number) & network password. View the video below for an overview of how it works.

The mobile app is not the only way to read or listen to these books. On any web browser, visit http://wbb15427.follettshelf.com/ and enter your Destiny username (student ID number) & network password to check out and read/listen to these books. 

 

Be a Good Digital Citizen

Technology connects us to friends and family, information and media. But it can also be used in inappropriate and harmful ways. It's important to be a good Digital Citizen to keep yourself safe and use these tools in an effective and responsible manner. Here are the five themes of Digital Citizenship:

  • Balanced students use screen time wisely and do not let the cyber world take over the real world. 
  • Literate students look at digital resources critically considering the bias, authority and currency of sources. Be picky about which sources you use, and learn to use specialized information tools provided by the LMTC.
  • Responsible students know how to protect themselves online and use borrowed equipment appropriately. Avoid sharing personal information and think before sending messages. When you use school devices, don't use them to create problems for others.  
  • Ethical students give credit where credit is due. Take notes from information sources without plagiarizing, and avoid violating laws about copyright.
  • Positive students use technology to learn, communicate and create. Do not use it to the detriment of others by spreading rumors, harassing or teasing classmates, taking pictures of people when they are not aware of it, or sending inappropriate messages.
 

Resources from the LMTC

Did you know that a search engine like Google only searches part of the internet?  There are many high quality resources that Google does not search.  Be sure to get in the habit of checking our school's subscribed information and research tools, such as Encyclopedia BritannicaBrainPOP, Safari Montage, and the Magazine Search database.  You can find links to these resources and more on the LMTC Tools for Research page.

Please note: many of these resources will work only in our school buildings.
