Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr Day! We had an impactful speaker share with scholars the choice of love that Dr. King embodied. Over the next month, we will shift our focus to the unfinished business of Dr. King: ending the systematic oppression of white supremacy.
As we launch the final 2 weeks of the semester, we want to encourage all scholars to turn in all of their missing work! The Insufficient Evidence (IE) will soon be turning to Failing (F) grades. Next week, scholars will get clarity on an opportunity to make up missing assignments/assessments that would demonstrate a meeting of standard. This opportunity will show up as an "I" on report cards, which stands for Incomplete. Scholars will have one month to turn in the necessary work to receive a A, B, or C.
We are excited to launch our virtual Sequoyah Student Store! Scholars will get a lesson about how the store operates next Thursday with a launch date of February 1st. Scholars will earn points which they can redeem for certain privileges/prizes. They will earn these by demonstrating a specific focus area. The first, will be engagement. We will then shift to work completion. More details to follow.
We will be working on a smooth transition to second semester. Scholars will have a change in SS or Science, as well as Elective course. Scholars will have opportunity to understand these changes in an upcoming SEL/CCR lesson. ELA teachers completed the iReady Reading assessment this week with math to follow.
As always, Principal Joe Rush can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or concerns.
