Think about your time here at Bancroft (or your time in elementary school if you’ve recently joined us. Think about this year in Room 11. What are some memories that you have that you’d like to share? What things have you done and learned? What people have you met, and what friendships have you made? How has this prepared you for what’s ahead? What hopes do you have about the future? What concerns do you have?

Please write a paragraph of 5 sentences answering some or all of the questions above in the comment box below.

  • Rules for the Computers and Blog

    1. Treat them right, and they will treat you right. Be gentle and take care of them.
    2. Do not share personal information online. Don't share passwords with others online.
    3. Work on building a community, try to help and support others. If you don't have something nice to say, you shouldn't say it.
    4. Use language, spelling, and grammar appropriate (correct) for school.
    5. Go only to online sites you are sent to. Always check before going somewhere that is not on a list of links from your teacher.
    6. If you change someone else's work (like on a wiki) make sure it's to improve the work, not to be mean or take revenge.
    7. Get educated, get learning, but have fun while you're doing it.
