November Happenings

This week, second grade enjoyed attending Onslow Ag where they learned about farming and third grade had fun at the Opera. Fifth grade students received awards for principal's list, honor roll, and perfect attendance. Our third grade led our Learn and Lead Day, presenting Habit 3 (Put First Things First). Report cards went home on Tuesday. Make sure and check out the Jacksonville Daily News for the article highlighting Mrs. Evan's longtime volunteer commitment to Silverdale and presentation of Governor Cooper's award for her years of service.

We have several important reminders for this week:

New Grading Policy:

In order to create consistency across our school, we have implemented a new grading policy for students. Beginning with the second 9 weeks, students will have the following times to make-up missing assignments before the grade becomes a zero.

Grades 3-5:

Classwork: 3 days

Homework and Projects: 7 days

Missing work from an absence: 3 days

Early Checkouts:

Please help us reduce the number of early checkouts. We’ve had 591 in the first 45 days of school. This is a significant loss in instructional time for students. We know emergencies come up, students get sick, and there are doctor appointments and other times when students need to leave; those checkouts are necessary. Please help us increase instructional time in the classroom by reserving early checkouts for when it’s necessary only. Thank you!
