Hello MMA Families!
Our third week of school saw students continuing with normalization as well as working on graded assignments. Your child should know the difference between a formative and a summative assignment, and how that affects their grades. There is a great amount of learning taking place in the classrooms, from tending to the chickens in Erdkinder to conducting experiments in science. They also received their planners to help keep them organized and on top of the varying due dates in their class. Each advisory has gone over how to use their planners.
Another way for students to stay organized is by having all of their needed class supplies. This is different from upper elementary in that they keep for themselves what they bring. Many of our students have not yet brought in supplies, and they are often leaving assignments in their lockers or crumpling them up in their backpacks. Supply lists have been handed out, please check with your students to see what is needed for class.
Parent Education Night is on September 5th, 5:30-7:00. It is a school wide event, please attend if you can. Our Parent Association meeting is on September 6th, 8:45am. It is a great opportunity to get in your 40 hours of volunteer service.
Thank you all for your support and have a restful Labor Day Weekend!
