Dear Ramsey Families,
Our 3rd grade students did a fantastic job last night at the Veteran’s Day concert. We are always inspired by Mr. Normington’s ability to prepare his students for such top-notch concerts. Your children are the beneficiaries of a fantastic music program.
Similar to last year, elementary teachers are using a semester system for grading, following the same format as our secondary schools. The longer grading period affords teachers the time to formatively assess and modify instruction to better meet the needs of all children. At conference time, your child’s teacher will share a progress report as well as examples of his/her work that demonstrates your student’s skills and abilities in reading and mathematics.
Shortly after the end of the semester in January, you will receive your child’s first semester report card. In the district’s continued efforts to create an effective reporting tool, the Standards Based Report Card has been modified to better express your child’s progress toward meeting our state standards. Standards may be grouped together or clarified to help parents better understand how their child is progressing.
The Ramsey Staff looks forward to conferencing with you soon about your child’s progress. If you have not yet signed up for a conference time, please do so ASAP! The linked document is below. It works best from a laptop or desktop computer (or you can use your smartphone if you have the app for Google Sheets on your phone, which is free).
The Jingle Books drive has begun! Check out THIS great article in the CDA Press about the annual event! We would love your participation and encourage you to bring in new or gently used books. It is a great feeling to see the faces of K-3rd grade students light up when they have new books in their hands.
Don’t forget, Ramsey is teaming up with the Kroc Center and their Families Feeding Families program! Each classroom will be collecting the “fixin’s” for one Thanksgiving meal (minus the turkey as the Kroc takes care of that). If you would like to donate non-perishable items to complete a Thanksgiving meal for a family, please send the items to your child’s classroom from now until Tuesday, November 15th. If you need more specifics, please ask your child’s teacher! Thank you!
Like the Energizer Bunny, Mrs. Burt is back at it again! The Elks National Hoop shoot begins next week for 8-11 year old boys and girls. Please check out the Ramsey webpage HERE for more details if your child is interested. When you get to the webpage, go to the “What’s New” section.
