Hello parents, Please note the following important dates coming up: Thursday, September 27th – Treat Day Tuesday, October 2nd – Picture Re-takes Friday, October 5th – Half Day for Students Monday, October 8th – No School (Columbus Day) Thursday, October 11th – Treat Day Wednesday, October 24th – Eagle’s Nest Thursday, October 25th – Hot Lunch _____________________________________________________________ Reminder: Your child may bring a water bottle each day along with a healthy snack. Also, please be sure that your child is wearing or has gym shoes EVERYDAY. Lastly, if your child is going to be a parent pick-up and that is not his/her normal dismissal routine, please send a note in. ____________________________________________________________________ Some important notes: Homework will be sent home every Monday in the form of a packet. Homework packets will be due back on that Friday. There will be a different packet for each grade. You may turn in the packet earlier than Friday if it is complete. The packets will consist of reading and math practice, along with skills that your child is working on in his/her IEP. Each child's packet will be individualized. Homework packets will be taken as a Formative participation grade. Re-takes are now available for summative tasks (if a D or an F is received). The most recent score will be recorded. We also have a new equal interval grading scale. This will include 50%-100% and still includes “F.” If a student receives a 27% on an assignment, a 50% will be recorded in the grade book and a comment will be made to indicate the 27%. Academic behaviors have been removed from effecting grades, but behavioral comments will be recorded in the comment box. (no name, late, etc.) Our school is now using NWEA MAP to assess our students. NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association) is our new assessment tool that provides research-based adaptive assessments based on the child’s score. As a result of NWEA tests, us teachers can make informed decisions to promote your child’s academic growth.
