Week of January 14, 2019
8th Grade - Important Announcements
On Friday, January 11, your student received a letter from me that details expectations and events related to graduation. There are behavior and grade point average requirements. This letter must be signed and returned to your student's science teacher by Friday, January 18. We will be meeting individually with all students who did not meet the 2.0 (cumulative) g.p.a. requirement at the end of first trimester.
On Tuesday, January 15, (even math periods) and Wednesday, January 16, (odd math periods), students will take the math placement test for high school during math class. This is a 45 minute test that is multiple choice. Students began preparing for this after Thanksgiving Break. This test is scored by UC Berkeley (unlike the Language Arts placement test, which is scored by the Sequoia Union High School District), so we have a really strict deadline to get these tests turned in. Please make sure your student is at school for this test unless he/she is really, really sick. We have to turn over the tests to the SUHSD by that Friday.
We should be getting the scores for the Language Arts assessment soon and will share these with you. If your student took that assessment late then those assessments won't be graded until some time after Friday, January 18.
Rehearsals take place after school starting the week of January 21. Performance dates are Friday, March 29, and Saturday, March 30. There are also opportunities for students to be involved by being a part of the stage crew.
