Infinite Campus Parent E-mail - November 6, 2010

The following e-mail was sent to students and parents through Infinite Campus.  If you are not receiving Infinite Campus messages via e-mail, log on to Infinite Campus and select "Change Contact Info."  Enter your e-mail address and then click Save at the bottom of the page.

The first set of grades for Q2 are now all entered and updated. It feels as though the quarter has just begun, and already the progress report period ends next Wednesday, November 10! You can check grades in all classes by clicking on the Infinite Campus icon at http://www.mrippolito.com.

About two-thirds of my history students are now receiving text message updates sent directly to their cell phone WITHOUT having to sign up for a Twitter account. If you would like text alerts from Mr. Ippolito's class (no Twitter account sign-up required) sent to your cell phone (or your child's cell phone), simply text the words FOLLOW MRIPPOLITO to 40404. There is no charge for this service, but standard text message rates apply. Mr. St. Peter (Team Thunder science teacher) uses Twitter regularly (FOLLOW STPETERSCIENCE) and Mr. St. Peter and I together keep the entire school community updated as the "official tweeters" for Rio Norte (FOLLOW RIONORTEJHS). If you get tired of me, you can always enter UNFOLLOW MRIPPOLITO. Lower- or upper-case letters don't matter. I just use them here for emphasis. For more information on Twitter Fast Follow, check out the article on the official Twitter blog here:

For the most complete online information about everything going on in my history class, log onto http://www.mrippolito.com. If you have a suggestion for how I can make online resources easier for you and your child to use, or if you have any questions, comments, concerns, complaints, or suggestions, e-mail me at rippolito@gmail.com.

Warm regards,
Ron Ippolito
