NPA Family Update

September 12, 2022

Getting into the NPA Groove

Greetings NPA Families. This style of school-to-home communication will accompany each new assignment sheet/period. This week all students are completing assignment sheet #1 and will be receiving assignment sheet #2. These assignment sheets typically represent 4 weeks or a month of school work. Completion of the sheet at the last meeting of the assignment sheet is considered positive attendance. Average Daily Attendance (ADA) at an independent study = work completion. How did your student do on this first round?


Assignment sheet #2 given this week has 20 days of ADA. The sample shown below is a Monday student. Please ask to see your student's new assignment sheet after the teacher meeting this week. Below is a quick tutorial video (3 minutes) on the anatomy of an assignment sheet.


As usual, NPA parents/guardians/caregivers are welcome at any student meeting. We hope this year is off to a strong academic start for your student. Let us know if you need any assistance.
