DMES – US Curriculum

Weekly Bulletin

December 10 – 14 , 2017

Field Trips - Effective Immediately there will be no field trips for grades 5-12 during the school day. There are a number of reasons for this including students who are choosing not to attend the field trip and decide to take the day off instead. Field trips may be scheduled for Saturdays, however I would look to see if the cost to pay teachers can be included in the trip costs.

Distribution of MAP, CAT and Attainment grades to parents – This information will be distributed to parents starting Monday afternoon December 11. This information will bring about questions relating to student scores and the grades you assigned the students. For some of our students and parents this may come as a shock when the students are not receiving high grades. Please be prepared to discuss with parents the grade you assigned and why along with your evidence.

January Professional Development – January 7-11, We are in the planning stages for this important set of days as we begin to prepare for the return of our students after the long break. We have a number of activities and trainings planned for the week which we are certain you will find beneficial. We have also scheduled in time for you to work in your classroom.

January 14 Students Return – Please keep in mind the importance of consistently stressing to your students the importance of good attendance. In the past many of our students have taken an extra week or longer of at the end of a break. Please stress to your students that you will continue to teach right up to the exams and that some revision will occur along with homework, quizzes and projects. Students attendance will be recorded and students will be marked absent.
