The Importance of Attendance
Laptop Care and Tips
- Ensure the case remains on the iPad or Chromebook
- Ensure food and drinks are not around the technology device
- Ensure scholars are stationary when using the iPad or Chromebook
- Monitor data usage on the hotspot
- When lessons have concluded for the day, ensure the scholar places the device in the same location for the next day
- Ensure technology devices are plugged in to charge at the end of the school day in order for scholars to have a fully charged device for the next school day.
If you have any questions, please let me know via email at email@example.com or by calling the office at (313) 426-1020.
Trix Academy has started the wellness screenings. As mentioned in previous newsletters, this year is unlike any we have experienced, and the health and safety of our students is our top priority. To help identify students in need of additional support services, staff will administer a brief wellness survey to their students at least once each semester. If you do not want your child to participate in school wellness screenings, you may opt your child out, by contacting the office at (313) 426-1020 or you may email Ms. Coleman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Third Grade Reading Law
Being a good reader is critical if a student is going to be successful in school. In order for students to be college and career ready, it is important that they have strong literacy skills. In 2016, the Michigan Legislature passed House Bill No. 4822 to ensure that children who exit Third Grade are reading at grade level.
In accordance with this law, and as a means of better informing classroom instruction, we will complete assessments in Kindergarten through Third Grade. These assessments will identify students who need intensive reading instruction and will also provide useful information to help teachers tailor instruction to meet individual student needs. Students will be assessed in reading at the beginning, middle, and end of the school year. The law also requires districts to provide written communication with parents of Kindergarten through Third Grade students who are not meeting proficiency targets. These notifications and a reading plan were given and discussed at Parent-Teacher Conferences during the first parent teacher conference. It is critical for everyone to be on the same page regarding Michigan’s reading law. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or the principal.
