Giant-Round Up at the Register

The Methacton School District is once again partnering with the GIANT Company on a special school program to help support our students. From now through February 28, 2022, GIANT customers can “ROUND UP AT THE REGISTER” to support the Methacton Backpack Program. Customers at the local GIANT (Egypt Road) can “round up” their grocery total at the register and the cumulative total of all the “spare change” donated will go into a fund for the Methacton School District. Last year, this fundraiser awarded more than $6,600 to the Methacton Backpack Program.

Standards Based Grading

The Methacton School District uses a standards-based grading system for students in grades K-4. This system helps us more accurately measure students’ mastery of PA Core Academic Standards in all subjects. The elementary report cards have been revised to reflect the changes to the state standards and Methacton’s curricula. The goal of this approach to reporting is to provide parents, students, and teachers with a detailed picture of what students know and are able to demonstrate. The information provided on the report card encourages dialogue about areas of strength and need, and how our students can continue to grow academically.

This article, Seven Reasons for Standards-Based Grading, explains more about standards-based grading.

As your child’s teacher explained during our Back-to-School night, I CAN statements have been developed to share with you what skills your child is being assessed on and the expectation of mastery for each trimester. The I CAN statements are listed on our MSD Family Center.

Counselor's Corner

Stress can be a good thing to help motivate, like with a performance or meeting a deadline. To keep stress at a manageable level deep breathing is always a great place to start. The oxygen flows to the part of your brain that helps to relax you. By noticing how your body feels, you may choose to add a muscular relaxation exercise, physical exercise or rest. Muscular relaxation is when you tighten and relax your body starting with just your feet, then legs, chest, arms, head and whole body. Try tensing your body as you inhale, and relaxing as you exhale. Doing this slowly before bedtime is a great way to help your children relax to drift off to sleep. Lori Shaw, School Counselor - 610-489-5000 X41207 or LShaw@methacton.org
