Wolf Pack Weekly
September 25, 2020
Back to School Night
The live Zoom Webinar is limited to 500 participants (IP addresses); this is a limitation within the Zoom system. The webinar will be recorded and posted to our website so parents/families who are unable to join us live can view it asynchronously. More details (and links!) will be coming later this week in a separate email communication.
Make-up Yearbook Portraits and ID Cards
This will be a (mostly) drive-thru event. Photographers will be stationed in the gym, and all individuals who are on campus must wear a mask.

Student Grades in Canvas and Aeries
Grade Integration for Canvas and Aeries - We had hoped that we would be able to integrate grades through Canvas and Aeries, meaning that a teacher could enter those grades into Canvas, and they would be automatically integrated into the teacher’s Aeries gradebook and show up on Parent Portal. Unfortunately, after many hours of IT and individual teachers working through this, we have been unable to make this integration work. Our District is in contact with Canvas IT and we continue to work toward a solution.
Where Can I See My Grades? - Right now, many teachers are keeping gradebooks in Canvas, while some are keeping track in the Parent/Student Portal. Parents are able to "pair" with their student using a unique code to track progress in Canvas. See this video for instructions for pairing with a student.
However, the CollegeBoard is offering alternative test dates later in the year. We are looking at a January test date, and if we are able to safely host this opportunity at that time, we will. Please watch for additional communication about the PSAT as we get closer to Winter Break.
Students are expected to participate in class every day. For videoconference calls, students are strongly encouraged to use their video feature as it adds to classroom culture, engagement, and general learning.
