-an opportunity to "restart" the school year with a 70%. WE have discovered it is easer for a student to maintain rather than build up from a low grade so we offer this once in a lifetime opportunity to students with grades below the 70%

10/09/2020,

Dear Parents,

Parent-teacher-student conferences are coming up. In 6th grade, you and your child will have 5 minutes to meet with three of the 6th grade teachers at the same time. Please be respectful of others time and their schedule.

Please make sure to check Campus, read the comments left by teachers and discuss with your child to clarify anything before the conference. We can also discuss any question you have during the conference.

Here are some topics to come to conferences with to make best use of this valuable time.

  • Any questions you have about grade, after reading the comments made by teachers on campus.

  • Any challenges and strengths you see in your child that will help in the academic support of your child.

  • Growth you have seen in your student since the beginning of the year.

Here are a few good questions we can use to focus our time together.

In What Areas Does My Child Need Improvement?

What Do You Think My Child Is Particularly Good at?

What Can We Do to Provide That Extra Help?

Now that we are 8 weeks into 6th grade and your child has had the opportunity to really experience the importance of starting the year strong, we will be offering scholars a special assignment to complete over fall break. If completed, it will allow the scholars to learn from their challenges, evaluate their progress and learning and improve their grades to allow them to start this next quarter with no D's or F.

Technology Issues Savvas Realize (formally Pearson Realize) is the math and Reading program we will be using this year to deliver appropriate and challenging curriculum this year for math and Reading. They have issued this report for the weeks in September.

"We recognize that some teachers and students have experienced challenges while using Realize and Realize Reader this week. Most of the issues that users are experiencing are related to historically high load on many of the systems that support Realize. Savvas Development Teams are working around the clock to resolve these issues quickly. We have implemented updates to Realize each night this week that are providing relief, and we are planning a major release this evening that will address most of the remaining intermittent latency and access issues"
