Announcements from Chancellor Meisha Porter: Family Letter and Instructional Principles
Please read the attached!
Dear Parents,As you know, summer is a time for students to relax and have fun, but it is also a time when no matter what level a student is at, the math skills slip without continued practice.So, how can we motivate students to keep learning at their level as they work towards grade level standards?We have developed a SUMMER MATH CHALLENGE that will keep heh learning going for our motivated learners!Most of our students in grades K-8 have been logging into their IREADY accounts on a weekly and daily basis to independently learn math at their level. This account will continue to be active until August 20th. All of the assigned MY PATH lessons on your child's dashboard are specifically selected by the program for your child. Once they complete a lesson, they can play some online math games to practice their newly learned skills before moving onto the next lesson.As parents, you can see exactly how much time each student is spending on lessons, and their progress.So here is the challenge:Beginning the week of July 5th through the week of August 20th, any student who actively logs onto iREADY, and passes at least 1 of their MY PATH lessons per week will be invited to a PIZZA PARTY when they return to school in September.Any student who logs onto iREADY and passes 3 or more of their MY PATH assigned lessons a week will also win an ice cream party for their class!Dave and I will be able to see their progress throughout this challenge on the iREADY Portal.We hope your child will take us up on this challenge!Also, attached are some card games that you can play with your child to keep their fluency skills alive and well throughout the summer.If you have any questions about your child's iReady account, please do not hesitate to contact me!Enjoy your summer:)Maryanne

All centrally DOE-loaned iPads are now hotspots. This means other devices can connect to your iPad’s internet connection, for remote learning. To enable your hotspot:
In order for any visitor or student to enter the building, he/she must be "cleared."
Prior to coming to our school, please visit:
Answer the questions for you (if you are visiting) or for your child attending school that day.
It will tell you if the person is “Cleared to Enter DOE Schools”
in green, OR “Not Cleared to Enter School Buildings” (red).
If it is RED, the person is NOT cleared (did not pass) and should stay home. He/she will not be allowed to enter.
The results must be shown to the school safety agent upon arrival. If you or your child do not have a phone, you can print out the results, and show the print out to the security guard when you/your child arrives. Only those who have a "GREEN LIGHT" will be allowed to enter.
