START AND DISMISSAL TIMES
Mrs. Marquez’s Memo
The School Site Council approved our School Site Plan for Student Achievement Thursday evening. We are excited that we were able to include more resources for our students and teachers in the plan. Thank you members of the Council for taking time out of your busy schedules to meet two times in the last two weeks! Our next School Site Council Meeting is February 19th at 5:00 PM.
The W.U.S.D. School Board also met on Thursday evening and voted to approve the same calendar that was used this year, for the 2014-2015 school year, for the 2015-2016 school year. School will begin August 19th next fall. There will be two weeks of vacation during Winter Break and one week of vacation during Spring Break.
Recently, I have received some emails and phone calls from concerned parents regarding attendance letters that have been sent to them even though they notified the school that their child was ill. The District uses a program called Attention 2 Attendance. One of the components of the program is to automatically send out attendance letters not only for students who have excessive unexcused absences, but also for students who have excessive excused absences. Whenever a student has 5 or more unexcused or excused absences, the parent will automatically receive a letter regarding their child’s attendance. The letters are generated by the company’s program, not by Stonegate or myself, even though my name is on the letter. The only exception to 5 or more absences generating a letter is if there is a doctor’s note for each of the absences. Data shows that a student’s learning is impacted if he/she has 10 or more absences during a school year, even if they are excused.
Our 6th – 8th Grade English teachers are looking for monetary or specific new book donations for America’s Battle of the Books program, a reading challenge between the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English classes. The purpose of the program is to encourage students to read, learn the value of reading for enjoyment, and increase their comprehension. If you are interested in helping with this program, you may send your monetary donations to the office or get a list of the books that are needed by contacting Mrs. Angel, Mrs. Judge, or Mrs. Koehler at 375-0960.
Announcements for 1/26 – 1/30:
Have a fantastic week!

NEW REPORT CARDS 1st-5th gr.
Report Card time is approaching for our 1st quarter of the school year. The change in report cards are only for 1st-5th grade at this time. The shift to a standards-driven report of progress is more than simply replacing letter-grades with numbers. Click here to read what parents need to know about their child's report card. Here is a PowerPoint presentation focused to help parents better understand what the new report cards are all about.
