Top TEN News @ Weston

August 17, 2018


1. All classrooms have completed the NWEA assessments for our Beginning of the Year. All we have are make ups for those students that were absent. We will let you know when the reports are available for you to access through the ParentPortal to your child’s Powerschool account. We take the same tests again in Middle and End of the Year. This allows us to use the data to set Growth Goals and CELEBRATE our student, classroom, and school SUCCESSES!


2. All K-3 students have been issued an iPad for this year. To learn about the expectations please watch this parent info video (approx. 4 minutes long): https://youtu.be/D-YIXbtvcEY iPad Agreement paperwork is attached. If you haven’t signed both pages yet please do so and return to school.


3. If you paid for the iPad insurance through our EZSchool Pay account you will need to complete the attached paperwork and return it to school before their device can be insured.


4. Lunch Accounts - Greenfield-Central is once again using www.ezschoolpay.com to put lunch money in your child’s lunch account (there is a small fee and you will need your child’s student number found on Powerschool). If you send money with your child please place it in an envelope or baggie in their take home folder. Make sure student and teacher’s names are listed. Please be sure to keep your child’s lunch account in good standing. Additionally, our cafeteria computer system does not have the capabilities to put a “block” on student lunch accounts for purchasing extra lunch items. You will want to make sure your child is on the same page as you when it comes to spending lunch account money. REMINDER. . . . The cafe does not have the ability to give change. If you are buying lunch be sure to have the exact amount. If you must overpay the excess will be applied to the student’s account.
