End of the First Quarter & Grades

The end of the 1st grading period is quickly approaching. Cathy will be at East Campus on Monday and Wednesday of next week and at Central Campus on Tuesday and Thursday of next week to help troubleshoot any issues with posting grades. In order to have report cards printed for the Monday and Tuesday parent teacher conferences, where they will be handed out in homerooms, we will need to have all grades in by Friday, October 16th at 8:00am. Cathy will then run a report to verify that all grades are in and will let teachers know if there is anything that is needing correction. You will need to watch for email communication throughout the day Friday, the 16th to immediately make any necessary corrections. We will then print report cards first thing on Monday during the day and get them to you for distribution that evening at conferences. If you have any questions at all, please do NOT wait until the last minute, instead make it a point to ask Cathy throughout this week too. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Parent Teacher Conferences

PT Conferences will be held on Monday, Oct 19th and Tuesday, Oct 20th for both the East and Central Campuses. Both days will be held from 3:30-4:30 and 5:30-7:30, with a carry in provided by PTA from 4:30-5:30.

If you have students whose conferences you are concerned about, especially if you feel that parents will not be receptive to what you have to say, please let Tyler or I know in advance of conferences. We will each be in a building for the evening and will make it a point to be in a conference for your support if it is needed.

According to our contracts, there are 10 additional full days that are built in. For this reason, it is expected that all full time teachers are in attendance both evenings, to account for one full day. Part time teachers are required to be in attendance for one of the two days. If you do not have conferences during a span of time, you may use that time for prep.

School Pictures - Oct. 26 & 27

The dates for school pictures have been set. Please watch for the specific details as to which grades are assigned to which date. The specific order is below and we will call classrooms as we are ready. We will begin around 8:15am. Thank you for being flexible. Also, ALL staff need to have their picture taken for new picture ID badges. If you do not have a homeroom, please plan to make your way down during a prep or passing period BEFORE lunch. Thank you!
