    Update on Gym Air Conditioner:

         Thank you to everyone who participated in our Fall Festival to make it a success.  We raised approximately $31,000 to go toward the purchase of an air conditioner for our gym.  As we have been getting quotes, we have realized that we must do additional electrical work to the gym before the air conditioner will be able to be put in there.  The electrical voltage that we have in there now, simply is not enough.  Doing this additional work will cost more than our original quote and therefore our plans for the air conditioner have had to be put on hold.  The money raised will be set aside in an air conditioner fund to be used when we have corrected the electrical issues in the gym.  Updates will be given as decisions are made and work is done.  Thank you again for all your help with this project.

    AR Grades on Progress Report

    Your student will have their current grade for Accelerated Reader on their progress report. This grade reflects their current percent of goal met and an average of their test scores. Each goal is personally set for each child according to their reading ability. This grade will change at the end of the nine weeks to reflect their reading progress at that time. Students are given time at school to read and will also need to read at home to successfully meet their goal. Teachers are required to put the AR grade in webpams to keep parents aware of their student’s progress in AR. We hope that we can work together to make our students understand the importance of reading. 

    Parents may login to HomeConnect (on our school website) to monitor the progress of their children. Ask your child what their login information is. If you need assistance you may contact Cindy Peterman for help. Thank you!

     

     

    Late Policy

    Corrected Late Arrival Policy

    We inadvertently left off a portion of our late arrival policy in our Student/Parent Handbook.  On page 10 of the handbook, the regular late arrival procedure is mentioned but not explained.  Once a student reaches five late arrivals in a marking period they are assigned morning detention.  The consequences will increase with the increased number of late arrivals to school (this is consistent with last year’s policy).  The absence process mentioned in the paragraph is new for this school year.

    2016-2017 Enrollment Application 

    Complete this form and return it to the school by March 18, 2016.  

     

    Parents,

    All DC students from Kindergarten-12th grade will have Accelerated Reader goals. First-12th grade students took a test at the beginning of the year which showed what grade level they read on and let us on know a range  that the students should be reading within. The students have three goals they are supposed to meet.

    • Point goal is based on their results from the Star assessment and 30 minutes daily reading.
    • Accuracy goal is 85%...This is figured by averaging the scores of all of the AR tests the student takes
    • Book Level goal is the low end of the ZPD or the range in which the students should be reading.

    Students will receive a grade in English based on their progress toward these goals.  Students are reading for 15 minutes in homeroom and will need to read nightly at home.

    You can monitor your child’s progress on Home Connect. Ask your child what their username and password is. If they do not know you may contact your child’s teacher or Cindy Peterman.
