We are at the 'final countdown' for the end of the year! This is an incredibly busy time, with final exams, projects, and 'fun' activities. Students will need to focus on instruction and on completing work and getting it turned in on time. If students have not started on the State, VIP, and Scientist for a Day projects, they should begin immediately. Students have had time in class and in the computer lab to get started.
I have been sending out email messages to parents of students who do not turn work in on time. Please check Power School carefully to make sure your child has turned in all work, especially if you are receiving multiple notices of missing work.
As we get closer to the end of the year, we will try to get as much done in class as possible. If your child seems to have an inordinate amount of homework, let's try to determine the reason. Some students work slowly, some do not use their time productively, some may need extra help, or organizational support. Please speak with your child and/or email me if this seems to be happening.
Parents and students, please check this web site weekly to receive updates about what we will be learning and to review assignments. You can email me from this site or just use my trinity email: firstname.lastname@example.orgIf you click below to subscribe, you will receive an email whenever the site is updated.
AR Reading: Students will receive their new point goals this week. The comprehension goal will remain at 85%. Happily, most students have been meeting and even exceeding this goal! Students who have enough points but a low comprehenson score should continue to read to try to improve their comprehension.
Uniforms: Most students are doing a great job. If your child is still having trouble showing up in the proper uniform, please help them organize to ensure they have the correct socks and that they find their belts the night before. It may seem like a small thing, but the uniform is part of the tradition and discipline of Trinity. Adhering to the uniform policies sets the proper atmosphere of respect and self-discipline. Many students play sports and are used to wearing a uniform for games and practices. Let's remember that it is even more important to wear the correct uniform to school.
