A Message From Ms. Arias
Dear Parents and Students,
We have completed our 2nd Quarter of this school year, as well as NWEA middle of the year testing. Now it is time for you as a parent to have a conversation with your child. The first is around their grades, report cards will be coming home Friday, November 7th. If after speaking to your child, you still have questions or concerns, make sure that you call and make an appointment to meet with his/her teacher. Do know that as a parent you have access to Parent Portal, which allows you to know how your child is doing daily in all his/her classes. If you are interested in setting this up, Mrs. Romero will be having Parent Portal classes on Monday’s throughout the month of February. Please look at our calendar for these dates. The second conversation I’m asking you to have is around NWEA scores. I want you to ask your child the following questions: Did he/she meet their MOY goal? If not, why? Did he/she have a positive or negative growth? If negative, why? What is their attainment percentile? The goal here is to have our students close to or above the 50th percentile. Lastly, what will they do differently as they take this test again at the end of the school year? These questions and conversations are critical to the academic growth of your child. If you would like more information as to what NWEA tests for, or what the information it provides means, feel free to stop by the office and I can sit down with you to further explain NWEA scores and its implications.
Lastly, this is an LSC election year. If you are interested in running for the LSC as a parent representative stop by the office to pick-up an application.
As always if you have any questions please feel free to contact the office at 773-535-9270.
