What's Happening?

Thank you to everyone for coming to conferences. It is always nice to talk with each of you. I believe this is the first year I have not needed to reschedule any conferences!! Thanks for your promptness and attendance.

Don't forget to complete the field trip information on mypaymentsplus for our trip to Stone Mountain on October 18th.

I have included a video I sent to my math class below. Hopefully you will find this helpful as well.

Please go to the Parsons website to complete a parent survey.

Parsons Retake Policy

All students will be given an opportunity to retake most summative assessments – regardless of their grade – however, students need to know that the assessment may be in a different format. This does not include cold reading tests and full length genre writing assessments scored with a rubric. The two grades (original and new retake grade) will be averaged together and placed in the grade book. Parents will be notified by the teacher when the opportunity to retake a summative assessment is available. Teachers may give the same test or teachers may create an alternate assessment. Retakes may not be requested after the original and retake assessments have been sent home. Retake opportunities will be given at school during normal school hours.

**Parents will need to complete a Parsons Retake Ticket and return it to school on the day of the retake in order for the child to have the retake opportunity. A copy of this ticket will be available on eClass.
