Our annual Back-to-School Night will be held on Thursday, September 10, at 7:00 p.m. Please mark this event on your calendar and plan to join us for an evening of important information, especially in regards to this year’s accreditation process, our new standardized assessment tool, updates on school safety, and further implementation of our school’s 1:1 technology program.
A major part of the accreditation process includes the writing our Self-Study that, by its completion, will assist us in doing three things: honoring our past (we have a lot to be proud of); celebrating the present (this will be an in-depth focus on all that we are accomplishing now and the impact it has on student learning); and pondering the direction of our future (we never want to seek the least common denominator; we want to go higher and better in everything we do as we move forward). Our teachers will be asking for your participation in this Self-Study process as well.
Please also note that in anticipation of launching the next phase of our technology plan, all students and parents will be required to sign the Diocesan Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) form before students can begin utilizing the Chromebooks and iPads in the classrooms, or taking them home for academic use. Students will be signing this document in the classroom within the first week of school, and parents will be given the same documents for their signatures during our Back-to-School Night meeting. It is our hope that all parents with students in grades 5 – 8 will be present to sign the AUP form so that the Chromebook and iPad devices can be given to you to take home to your children.
We look forward to having you join us for this very important meeting!
