40 plus students were eligible to take part in the newly formed Academic Center. Each teacher will be working with 10 students maximum. Each group will meet with their A.C. teachers twice a week. The program will provide the following: Study Skills, Homework Assistance, Organization Skills, and overall Academic and Emotional Support. Students in the program are also encouraged to attend the school-wide Homework Center on days they do not meet with their AC teachers.
As we begin a new academic school year, we want to share with you the Promotion Policy stating the criteria every 8th grade student must meet in order to be eligible to participate in the Principal’s Breakfast and Promotion Ceremony at year end. It is very important that you familiarize yourself with this policy.
The 8th Grade Principal’s Breakfast and Promotion Ceremony will be held on May 29, 2014. Participation by your son/daughter will be contingent on the following academic requirements:
Students are expected to receive a passing grade in every class.
Any student that receives an “F” letter grade in their ELA or Math course in the first SEMESTER will be disqualified from the breakfast and ceremony.
Any student that receives an “F” letter grade in their other rotating courses (Science, Social Studies, PE, or Elective) in the first SEMESTER, cannot receive an “F” in that same course during second SEMESTER or they will be disqualified.
Students are expected to receive a passing grade in every class.
Any student that receives an “F” letter grade in their ELA or Math course in the second SEMESTER will be disqualified from the breakfast and ceremony, regardless of their grade in the first semester.
Interventions to Encourage Promotion
Parents/guardians of students who are at risk of not being able to participate in the breakfast and ceremony, will be contacted by phone/mail after each quarter that grades are posted. However, the Parkway Heights staff (teachers, administrators, counseling team) will also work with individual students on an ongoing basis to increase the chance of academic success as well as their ability to participate in these important events. This will take place in the following forms:
- Encouraging participation in Homework Center (Monday – Thursday from 3:15 pm – 4:15 pm)
- Mandatory assignment of students to one of our Strategic Homework Clubs
- Continuous monitoring of students at risk through Schoolloop and discussions with teachers
- Periodic meetings with a Counselor
- More home contact from Advisory Teacher as well as some opportunity to catch up on work during Advisory period
- Parent Teacher Conferences as needed
Details about the breakfast and ceremony will be given later in the year.
If you have any questions about the contents of this letter, please do not hesitate to contact our counselors Angelica Garduno or Pricila Rodriguez at (650) 877-8788.
