Kimpton Middle School

Kimpton Daily Announcements -- Week of May 25, 2015

Kimpton Families
Always wanting to support education and education research, Kimpton Middle school has been asked to support the research of Dr. Wondimu Ahmed, a professor at the College of Education, The University of Akron. A letter was sent home last Wednesday, to invite students to participate in research he is conducting. Student participation is entirely voluntary - if you permit your child to participate in this survey, please return the letter in the provided envelope and have your child return it to Kimpton. Students will take the survey on Friday. The purpose of this study is to examine the relationships between parents’ and children’s beliefs and feelings about math. The findings of the study will contribute to improving math education. Thank you.


Last week a link was provided for parents to take the online parent survey - if you have not taken the survey, please do so. Thank you. https://akron.qualtrics.com/jfe1/preview/SV_38XCz3LwFILhk3z

In preparation for the 2014-2015 school year a letter will be sent in early August providing you information about our Jump Start, which is set for Thursday, August 14th. This is a great opportunity for students to get their schedule, pay their school fees, get their Ohio Achievement Assessment results, get their school picture taken, and walk the school to help the students get acclomated to the school and their schedule.

Also, please remember, ALL grade 7 students must provide documentation that they have received their TDAP shot.

BYOT - Bring Your Own Technology to Kimpton

In our continuous efforts to engage your child in their learning, Kimpton Middle School is allowing students to bring personal technology devices (i.e. cell phones, iPads, Nooks, Kindles, Laptops, Netbooks, etc.) to school to be used for educational purposes.

We piloted the BYOT program during the spring of 2012 and found, even with a few bumps, it was very successful. Beginning the first day of school, your child will be permitted to use personal technology devices (i.e. cell phones, iPads, Nook, Kindles, etc.) in classrooms for educational purposes only. Your child is permitted to use their device under the direct supervision of their teacher(s).

On the first day of school, the students will be introduced to the BYOT program and we will answer all their questions. Please see the two attachments the students will be given - 1) My letter to Kimpton Families describing BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology), and 2) Question & Answer document
