Thoughtfulness for Further Growth

Authentic learning can look messy and have its ups and downs, but just keep moving in an upward trajectory.

Short article by George Couros linked below:

Thoughtfulness for Further Growth

3rd Quarter Timeline to Remain the Same

3rd quarter timeline will remain as scheduled on the calendar:


  • March 8, 2019 - 3rd Quarter Ends
  • March 13, 2019 - All grade finalized in SIS
  • March 15, 2019 - Report Cards to go home


This decision was based on the following:

  • Dates are published and communicated to stakeholders on a board approved calendar.
  • 3rd quarter is reporting student progress towards end of year goals and therefore can be more progressive as opposed to a summative report at the end of 4th quarter.


Note:

  • If there are any modifications to reporting topics at the Elementary Level, please ensure that each grade level is consistent within each building.

Don't Forget to Shut It Down!

School Board Recognition Week - Visit from Amy MacCuish

Amy MacCuish visited the high school on February 13th. Thank you for showing her how awesome we are, Pirates!


This is what she had to say:

"I had such a wonderful visit! Thank you very much for the warm welcome and goodies. I loved being there with all the students and learning about the new programs and innovations."


Thank you Bevin Schmer, Mark Blakley, Ashleigh Schlorholtz, Chelsea Rohr, their students, Gail Martin and the Cheerleaders, and Dr. Sayre for welcoming her and allowing her to visit your classrooms.

GO PIRATES!!

Student SCHIVIRS

In an effort to make sure we are recognizing all our students, we are opening up the opportunity for students to nominate their peers when they are seen living out our Pirate Character Traits in our building.

While we are asking students to nominate their peers, we would also love to have you nominate our students as well.


STUDENT SCHIVIRS NOMINATION FORM

Staff SCHIVIR Spotlight

We would like to share and highlight our Staff who have been nominated for SCHIVIRS!

Here are the January nominees:

COUNSELORS

Collaboration/Student Focus

All of the personnel associated with the counseling department and office staff who pitched in to help plan, organize and make Monday night's Freshman Curriculum Night (8th grade parent night), a success.

Quite often, these people do not get recognized for their "behind-the-scenes" work that contributes to the success of our students, helps better inform their parents and gives clarity to the connections between classrooms and those stakeholders.
