Bernarda Jaime Junior High School

Success Begins Here...Enter With No Fear

Weekly Update: September 13 - 17

Rider Family,

You have all been doing great in working with all of our students so far this year. I ask that you continue to do what you are doing. Keep building those relationships and keep having your students be engaged with your lessons.

This is the last week of the 1st Six Weeks, yes, the end of the 1st Six Weeks. Please work with our students in reaching their goals for your class. We are aiming at having no more than 10% of our student population failing at the end of the term. I know I have shared the expectation of calling home when students are failing and documenting those phone calls. Also, the expectation of providing needed accommodations and documenting those as well. Grades need to be posted by 4pm for UIL purposes.

Just a friendly reminder to sign up for concession stands session or our dance and please submit your courtesy fund donation ($25) to Ms. Alma by the end of the month.

I appreciate all you do!

Dr. P
