Report cards will be sent home on Wednesday. Attached to the report cards you will also find a newsletter with up to date calendar information and your 7th or 8th grade course selection sheet for next year. Please fill out the course selection sheet and have it back to your child’s science teachers by Friday, March 8th.
Progress reports are coming home today, Wednesday December 12th. We will have one week before we leave for Christmas Break and one week after we get back before the six weeks ends. So, if there is an unacceptable grade at this point, make sure everything gets turned in and test corrections are made before we leave for break. Also, remember we have an early release day on December 21st.
This is the last week of the six weeks. Teachers are working very hard to get students to come in to correct tests and turn in missing papers. If your Parent Portal is not working or you need information to get you in, please call the main office here at the Junior High. Angela Bettinger has all of that information for you. Once you get into Parent Portal, you will be able to see any missing papers or failing test grades that you can encourage your child to re-take or correct. Some missing papers can not be turned in if they are too late but others still might have a chance to count. Report cards will be sent home next Wednesday the 10th.
With progress reports coming out next Wednesday the 19th, some parents may be trying to figure out how to stay on top of student assignments. First, make sure you have signed up for the parent portal. If you do not have enough information to sign up, please contact the Junior High front office. Second, if you are unclear about assignments in a teacher’s class either e-mail the teacher or sign up for his/her blog to get more information. Let us know if we can help.
Don’t forget to come to the school next Tuesday night the 28th of August. We will start to gather at 6:15 in the cafeteria for our PTA meeting and then get some instructions from our new principal, David Wrzesinski. After our brief instructional meeting, you can walk around and meet teachers and find your classes. New schedules will be available on this night. School starts the next morning! It’s going to be a great year!
