MC Principal Letter

Hello Middle School Family,

I hope that you are adjusting to Daylight Savings – I know I was dragging a bit earlier this week :-) 

In advisory this week your students are preparing for their student-led conferences. Those conferences will be occurring next week. Your students’ advisors have been reaching out to schedule conferences with you so hopefully you’re all set for next week.

During the conference your students will be sharing information with you about the learning goals they have set as well as the progress that they have made on those goals. Your students have also received feedback on how they have been doing in class since the end of the semester. At the end of semester one in December, your students’ teachers wrote narrative reports about your student’s class performance that included an area of strength and an area of growth for your student. In the last few weeks teachers took a look back at those semester narratives and wrote comments on whether they have shown growth in the last nine weeks based on taking the feedback they received at the end of semester one.

Teachers also reported on the Commitment to Guiding Principles grades that your students have earned this Spring. These grades are very important, because when a student is committing to being Prepared, Responsible, and Respectful in the classroom these qualities lead to academic success. If a student is struggling in these areas it is hard for them to be successful academically, so it is important to pay attention to these scores.

These reports will be uploaded into ManageBac next week. I will send out an email when they are ready. In the meantime, you will be able to get some quality updates on how your student is doing during their conference next week.

Enjoy the rest of your week, and if you have any questions please feel free to reach out.

 

Kind regards,

Mark
