Report Cards

Report cards will be published to ASPEN on Friday afternoon (March 24th). We believe parents and guardians an important part of our team. Although communication should be ongoing, reports cards are one way to communicate progress and the overall story of each child. Please make sure you have access to your ASPEN account, so you can look at the report cards. We are here to help you if you need any support.

Also, I want to remind you of the report card grading rubric. Our elementary report cards are standards based and measured on a 4 point rubric. This means that students are assessed each term towards each standard with the ultimate goal being a 4 (independent) or 3 (with support). If you have any questions about your child's grades, please reach out to the teacher for clarification.

March Madness - Week 2

The competition is fierce. Classes are working hard to be in the top position. Results from week 1 are being calculated and will be shared later.

Continue to ask your child what points they have earned in their class.

Keep up the great work!

ST Math Banner Contest

As a part of the Massachusetts One8 Program, your school has been working hard to meet your yearly goal of 80% puzzle goal progress by the end of the school year. We want to recognize all the hard work educators and students have done to meet this goal by providing a very special, student-created ST Math banner at your school’s end of year ST Math meeting. But we need your students’ help!

How to Participate:

  1. Create a colorful picture (on a standard 8.5 X11sheet of paper) that includes: JiJi, the number 80 represented as a picture, expression, or equation and whatever other creative ideas you have! The picture should take up the majority of the sheet.
  2. Return your student's entry to their teacher no later than April 5th.
  3. The school with the winning artwork will be notified by April 14th. The winning banner design will be printed by the One8/ST Math team and given to all Massachusetts schools who meet their school-wide goal of 80% average puzzle progress.

Banner Design FAQs:

Who can make a banner?

  • Any ST Math student who has a school being supported by the One8 program. That's US!

What makes a great banner?

  • We are excited to see student-created banners that include Jiji, a representation of the number 80, and whatever other creative designs, colors, and images that might make a banner pop!

Who will submit the banners?

  • Students should return their pictures to their teachers, and we will submit!
