Haynes Bridge Community,
Thank you for making arrangements for your child(ren) on Monday so that our staff had time for training to support our work for our strategic plan. This past Monday has focused on a common writing rubric to score writing samples in the all content classes. We will be teaching this rubric to the students in October and have resources available for our families as well.
Last week, we held our annual Curriculum Night. We appreciate all of the families who were able to make it out to meet the teachers. If you were not able to make it and would like to meet with any of your child’s teachers, please reach out to them individually to set up a time to conference. It is important that you have what you need to support your child during this academic year.
Our goal for PTA membership is that 80% of our families join. We currently have 215 family memberships which is ~35% of our families. We have a long way to go, however, you can help us meet the goal by joining for only $10 at https://www.myschoolanywhere.com/cartnew.a5w?cart=HaynesBridgeMS106182. You can also find information on the Haynes Bridge website—www.haynesbridge.com—under the tab “Parents—PTA”.
On Thursday, September 13, the first Interim Progress Report (IPR) is being sent home with all students. For students who attended Hillside Elementary last year, the 2018 Milestones report will be attached to the IPR. If you have been checking HAC regularly, the grades on the IRP should be what you were expecting. If you need your HAC password, please stop by school with an ID and we will provide it for you.
This is the half-way point for the 1st quarter and a great time to sit down with your child and review their achievements thus far. Celebrate the areas where your child has found success and discuss goals for the areas that your child may not be doing as well. If your child is failing any classes, you should have already heard from that teacher to discuss the current concerns. If you need support for your child, you can also contact our Graduation Coach, Mrs. Nigro firstname.lastname@example.org.
