Dr. Harmer Message

Hello Eagleville Families,

It was great to return to Eagleville this week! I want to thank Ms. Ricci and the staff for a wonderful job during my recovery. I realize we face challenging times right now, but be assured that the safety of the children always come first. If you have any questions in regards to absence or illness don't hesitate to call. Mrs. Cramer our school nurse and our office staff are working tirelessly to be there to answer all your questions.

Next Thursday, January 13th is the Eagleville Winter Concert which will begin at 7 PM and will be held at Woodland Elementary. The students are very excited for our first live concert in two years! Please enjoy your weekend.

Cold Weather Recess

Don't forget the coats and cold weather gear when you return to school. Even in the winter months students go out for recess on most days. We want them to be comfortable when they play.

Standards Based Grading

The Methacton School District uses a standards-based grading system for students in grades K-4. This system helps us more accurately measure students’ mastery of PA Core Academic Standards in all subjects. The elementary report cards have been revised to reflect the changes to the state standards and Methacton’s curricula. The goal of this approach to reporting is to provide parents, students, and teachers with a detailed picture of what students know and are able to demonstrate. The information provided on the report card encourages dialogue about areas of strength and need, and how our students can continue to grow academically.

This article, Seven Reasons for Standards-Based Grading, explains more about standards-based grading.

As your child’s teacher explained during our Back-to-School night, I CAN statements have been developed to share with you what skills your child is being assessed on and the expectation of mastery for each trimester. The I CAN statements are listed on our MSD Family Center.

Counselor's Corner

As the new year begins, it’s a great time to think of new habits. Consider talking to your child about some healthy choices and keeping goals small and manageable. Some goals may include: being in bed by 9:00, exercising for 30 minutes each day, limiting screen time to an hour and eating some fruit and vegetables each day. Having your child make a chart to track progress is a fun way to motivate them. For help with a family goal chart, contact Lori Shaw, School Counselor at 610-489-5000 X41207 or LShaw@methacton.org
