Week of April 5, 2021 Ninja News

Hello Ninja Families,


Happy Spring everyone. What beautiful weather we are having for the first part of April. We hope that all of our families are able to go out enjoy it. There have been several celebrations over the past week including winners of the Earth Day poster contest and the March Ninja of the Month! All of our ninjas are doing an excellent job of attending Live Lessons, small groups, conferences, DBA's, and submitting coursework in a timely manner. We know that all of those tasks take a lot of Learning Guide coordination and organization. Our team wants to extend our thanks to all of our hard working Learning Guides who are an essential part of the elementary Ninja Nation.

A. Yes, Pasco eSchool will be providing a make-up test opportunity. Please contact our office to let us know that your student will need to be signed up for a make-up session.


Attendance:

Attendance will be reported on Mondays and documented on report cards and progress reports. Students will be marked absent from school if they are not keeping on pace with the weekly pacing chart. If your child is not feeling well and is unable to work for part of the week, please fill out the Excused Absence Form provided by following the link. Students will be asked to make up missed assignments by the end of each marking period. Communication is key for your ninja's teacher to help create a modified pacing chart to help your child catch up with missed schoolwork. Automated phone calls will be sent out to alert families when an absence has been logged in the Parent Portal and MyStudent.
