Dealey Montessori -Newsletter

December 14, 2022

The mission of George Bannerman Dealey is to provide an exemplary education that develops and empowers all students to become productive citizens in our global society.

Dealey Parents,

Beginning Thursday, December 15th, 3rd-8th grade students will take ACP exams. For 3rd-5th grades, ACP exams count for 5% of the student’s final semester grade, and for 6th-8th, they are worth 10% of the student’s final semester grade.

These are timed tests (2 hours each), so please make sure your child is at school before 8:30 as all testing will begin immediately after announcements. It is important that students get plenty of rest and bring a snack to eat between tests. Students may not take exams early. They must take the test during the scheduled window. Students with an unexcused absence will receive a score of 0 for their final exam which could impact their semester grade. Students with an excused absence will be able to make-up the exam in January (exact dates TBD). We encourage students to bring lunch.

Attendance Matters

Every school day counts in a child's academic life... A missed school day is a lost opportunity for students to learn. Our campus attendance went up to 96.98%

The highest percentage of attendance among the grade levels will have the opportunity to wear jeans with a Dealey or College shirt on Thursday. Congratulations 4th grade with 99.37%! You may wear jeans this Thursday with a Dealey spirit or college shirt.
