Hello Eagleville Families,

Wow! What a great job by our musical staff and students last night at Woodland! It was so great to see the students perform live in front of their families. Thank you to all that attended, and congratulations to all our performers.

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.

First grade students were given marshmallows and toothpicks to build a house for the 3 little pigs! A hair dryer was used as the big bad wolf to see if it could stand! As a bonus look at those Eagles hats for Eagles Spirit Day!

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

As the new year begins, it’s a great time to think of new habits. Consider talking to your child about some healthy choices and keeping goals small and manageable. Some goals may include: being in bed by 9:00, exercising for 30 minutes each day, limiting screen time to an hour and eating some fruit and vegetables each day. Having your child make a chart to track progress is a fun way to motivate them. For help with a family goal chart, contact Lori Shaw, School Counselor at 610-489-5000 X41207 or LShaw@methacton.org
