Arrival and Dismissal Traffic

Traffic during arrival and dismissal requires everyone to have patience as we move through the pick-up and drop-off zones around campus. We are a large school with over 1,100 students coming and going before and after school.   It is important to remember we are in a dense neighborhood and traffic laws must be followed when navigating this area before and after school.  We need to keep all students safe!  You must wait for your child in the drop-off and pick-up zone in the line until reaching the designated yellow zone. It is important our students are not entering vehicles from the street or red zone and are picked-up a the curb in the appropriate yellow school zone. Cars should never park in the yellow or red zone!

It is important we be courteous and safe during these times, patience in understanding the traffic patterns and wait time during before and after-school is greatly appreciated. Remember, our children watch our example, so please always be safe and respectful. Our goal is to always keep all Momongas safe!

Middle of the Year Assessment Window

The assessment window for Achieve 3000 and iReady is now open until December 16th. Please note that teachers and grade levels have selected dates during December to administer the mid-year assessments. Please be on the look out for notices from your classroom teacher for the specific dates of your child’s assessment.

Testing Tips:

  • Get enough sleep— 8-10 Hours of sleep per night helps children have the energy to do their best!
  • Eat a healthy breakfast— Start the day with a meal that includes healthy energy-boosting foods such as eggs, healthy cereal, fruit and/or whole-wheat toast!
  • Exercise— Physical activity helps improve attention!
  • Think positive thoughts— You can encourage your child to take slow deep breaths and think of something that makes them happy when they feel stressed during a test.

New Report Cards for Quarter 2

This quarter the district has created a new Progress Report (report card)for reporting grades. There will be a revised rubrics utilized by teachers to identify your child’s progress towards the grade-level standards throughout the year. To assist with helping families understand the changes to the reporting process, we will be sending home resources and a parent guide to accompany the updates with the report card. We hope you find the updates beneficial to understanding your child’s academic progress throughout the year. You may reach out to your child’s teacher, if you have further questions. Report cards will be sent home by the end of the quarter on Friday, December 16, 2022.
