Week 6

Hello Parents,

What’s with my student’s grades? This is a question that some of you may have as some of our teachers are moving to standards based grading. I’ve included an attachment that provides an explanation. At our next PFSA meeting on October 8th, two of our teachers will share and answer questions about standards based grading. The meeting begins at 7 pm in the cafeteria.

Parent teacher conferences will be held from 4-7 pm on both Monday, October 15th and Wednesday, October 17th; report cards for the 1st Card Marking will be given out when you come to visit your children’s teachers. PFSA will be there accepting new members as well.

Friday, October 19th at 8:30 am is our Academic Achievement Award ceremony. We’ll be recognizing nearly 450 students who were invited to celebrate their earning a 3.5 GPA or better for both semesters last school year. The program will hopefully conclude by 10:00 am. All students who qualified from their performance last year were invited at the beginning of last week.

We are hoping to have many of you out to join us for these events.

Thanks

Mr. Martin
