Team Callahan and Honeycutt

March Core Value is PATIENCE | Alloway Creek Elementary

We thank you all for your flexibility in these strange times. As educators and administrators across the county and country, we are doing our best to adjust and adapt to the new norm in education. We hope this is temporary, but until then we need to stay positive and work together to project the right message to our children. That will allow them to begin this school year with the right attitude necessary for success, and the belief that they too can overcome obstacles just as we are overcoming the challenges presented with virtual learning.

A look ahead to our 1st day of virtual learning here at LCES.

The Blue Button is the conferencing tool that will be used with Canvas. Students will need to use this daily to access their class meetings and assignments.  This 5-minute video will help students understand how the tool works.

CHECK OUT THE BIG BLUE BUTTON TUTORIAL HERE!

Or just follow these directions:

  1. Students are asked to login 15 minutes BEFORE class begins(so at 8:15 am) using whatever device you chose, log in to the http://my.ccps.us/ website. The early login will allow time to work out any technology glitches before class begins at 8:30.
  2. Find and click on the Clever icon.
  3. Find and click on the Canvas icon. This will take you to the Canvas dashboard.
  4. Click on your child’s homeroom course tab (5th HR – Honeycutt or 5th HR – Callahan). This should open your child’s virtual Bitmoji homeroom.
  5. Follow the directions on our bitmoji whiteboards to join or “start” the homeroom conference meet and greet at 8:30 am.

PLEASE join or “start” the class on time and be seated in a quiet distraction free work area. Have your supplies close by, mute your microphone until directed otherwise, and be dressed appropriately. See you at 8:30.

This main page of our blog may be a regular resource for us as we communicate with you all throughout the year. We will most likely send links to this page using the Remind app, so please check those messages frequently and ask questions. We are here to help make this year a success for everyone that has a stake in this whole process

Hello, My name is Cynthia L. Honeycutt, and this is my 34th year teaching in Caroline. I have been a 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade teacher in Caroline, and now returning home to teach 5th grade to end out my career. I am happily married to Mr. George Honeycutt for 27 years. We have four beautiful boys, Wesley who is employed at Premium , Matthew who is a senior at VCU studying History Education, Jonathan who is employed at MC Dean, and Solon who is a tenth grader at CHS. Our boys have performed well in school, and I know it is due to an awesome school system who puts children's best interests first. We are proud parents of our boys. We also have been living in Caroline since 1998. I enjoy teaching, and it is my passion to share my knowledge and love of teaching with my students. I always felt that I had the best students to teach each and every year. I am in education for the students, and to teach them that learning is great and can be fun. In my spare time I enjoy swimming, four-wheeling, and watching sports--Go Steelers!!! I also enjoy riding my motorcycle. Lastly, I enjoy driving around my 1979 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400, it seems to bring back high school memories and when cars were really build tough!! I hope your children enjoy my class as much as I enjoy seeing and teaching them!!
