As the leaves on the deciduous trees lining Park View Boulevard begin to change their colors and the burning bushes lining the tennis courts are turning red, the first mid-quarter marking period is upon us!


We have had a successful transition to the in-person learning environment, which is balancing students coming in on Tuesdays/Thursdays, Wednesdays/Fridays and full-time distant learners!  So far, the students have done a remarkable job at fulfilling their responsibilities.


Mid-Quarter Progress Reports reflect student performance as of October 15, 2020, and will be published and be able to be viewed on Friday October 23.  If you have any questions regarding those comments please contact us and we will be happy to explain or clarify that information with you.


Remember that mid-quarter comments are intended to notify you as to how things are going so far.  There is still plenty of time to improve, or address, any concerns or obstacles that have been identified at this time.


One notable observation this year is the amount of time that is given to students to complete their work throughout the school day (between 8:10 am and 2:20 pm).  The Period 5 Pathway to Success period is built into their schedule to allow students to catch-up on overdue assignments, work on current assignments, or seek extra help from their teachers.  It is encouraged that students utilize this time for academic support, as well as attending to their social & emotional well-being as we navigate through this distance-learning model.   


Please do not hesitate to contact any of us with your questions or concerns.  We are looking forward to meeting you at Open House (date to be determined).


Sincerely,

The Elements Team Teachers
