Curriculum Nights Information

We are excited to offer Curriculum Nights for grade level groups. This has been a request parents have brought forward to the Site Council and the teachers feel would be beneficial to our families. We are dividing these nights over three weeks to better accommodate parents with children at multiple grade levels.

Thursday, November 1, 2012, at 5:00 pm
will be the Middle Grades Curriculum Night. This will be for grades 6, 7 and 8. Some sixth grade parents may feel the materials and information were covered at the Sixth Grade Orientation in August. To a greater degree, this is true and your attendance is optional. All middle grades parents should bring a copy of your child's schedule (They should bring one home, or you can print one using the Parent Portal). You will begin the evening in your child's Advisory Classroom. Each period will have a ten minute window. During the period your child has Specialist time you may select which specialist you want to visit. There will only be time to visit one. The classroom information will end at 6:00.  For those interested, there will be a fifteen minute presentation about the Advanced Math Pathway overall Middle Grades plan. This will be held in the gym 6:00 to 6:15 pm by Mrs. Rynchek.

Thursday, November 8, 2012 will be the Curriculum Night for grades 3, 4 and 5.  This evening will begin between 4:45-5:15 as an open window to visit Specialists. At 5:15, parents go to these respective areas: Third grade to your child's classroom; Fourth grade to the gym; Fifth grade to the cafeteria. Teachers will present information and hold a Q&A.  For those interested, at 6:00 there will be a fifteen minute presentation by Mrs. Rynchek about the Advanced Math Pathway plan, held in the gym.

Thursday, November 15, 2012 will be the Curriculum Night for grades K, 1 and 2.  This evening will begin in the Gym with Mrs. Parrish discussing the changes in the Math Differentiated Instruction and the the Specialists providing information about their curriculum. Then each grade will get grade-specific information: the Kindergarten will go the Lunch Room, 1st Grade will meet in the Media Center and 2nd Grade will stay in the Gym.  

Use our Website Form to submit questions for your teachers.


If you have questions for your teacher(s), please use the provided form to submit them before the Curriculum nights.  This way the teachers can categorize and prepare answers to your questions.

The questions you submit will be used as a planning tool for the teachers to create their curriculum presentations; they may not be answered directly. Please do NOT include specific concerns about your student as you had an opportunity to discuss these types of specific concerns at your individual teacher conferences last week.  To ensure that the teachers have adequate time to prepare their curriculum presentations, any questions must be submitted at least 3 days before your scheduled Curriculum Night.
 
Please include your email in the form so questions not addressed on the Curriculum Night can be answered by your child's teacher personally.

Here's a link to the form for your questions.
