THURSDAY THOUGHTS MAY 14TH, 2020

DEAREST TOPE FAMILIES,

GRADING/REPORT CARD/ NEXT YEAR TEACHER-- INFORMATION- We will be mailing out report cards around May 22nd. You should expect them to arrive in the mail the following week. We are hopeful that you will know your child’s assigned teacher for the following year at that time. However, there are a lot of unknowns right now in the world of education. We are monitoring our 4th and 5th grade classrooms for class size and will wait to assign teachers until July/August based on numbers and the situation.

Due to Remote Learning Circumstances, not all content was taught as it would have been, therefore you may see more N's on this report card. Fourth quarter academic grades will not be lowered, but may improve per district guidelines. Remote Learning included a minimum of 3 literacy and 3 math lessons weekly that connected to standards and D51 curriculum. Effort and Behavior grades are based on Remote Learning.

Grades will be given based on the previous quarter. Staff will take into consideration engagement and participation for 4th quarter and respond accordingly. If areas were not taught you will see a “N”. Only students who participated in the Specials (PE, Music, STEAM, Library and Technology) will receive grades, all others will receive “N”.

REMOTE LEARNING ENDED TODAY! TOPE RESOURCE RETURN DAY IS TOMORROW, MAY 15TH! CHROMEBOOKS, LIBRARY BOOKS AND CLASSROOM BOOKS MUST BE RETURNED IN ORDER TO ENSURE OUR TOPE EAGLES CAN CONTINUE TO HAVE THESE RESOURCES NEXT YEAR AND FOR YEARS TO COME!
