Thanks to all parents who were able to attend middle school's final parent coffee of the 2018-19 school year. The chance to gather together again gave us the opportunities to get to know each other a bit better, learn about upcoming changes to personnel, review our division's philosophy and driving principles, and overview updated academic systems.
With regards to these updates, parents had the opportunity better to understand our revised bell schedule. This schedule, aligned with our high school's, will allow for us to optimize our use of time and resources in order to better serve students. While more details were covered in previous coffees devoted specifically to Standards Based Grading and Reporting, this gathering also gave us the opportunity to review these updated systems and answer any follow-up questions.
Again, we would like to extend a warm thank you to all parents who were able to attend. For those who were not able to make it, or for those who wish to review the presentation, please find a copy of the Google Slides here.
We look forward to seeing your kids on our first day, August 7th. We also look forward to seeing parents at upcoming events including our Open House (August 21st) and Student Led Conferences (October 18th). We know that by working together closely between school and home we can ensure the best experience for each study every day.
