Needham News Oct. 23rd, 2020

Upcoming Calendar Changes 

The School Board has approved October 30th, 2020 to be a district-wide home-based learning day for students and Monday, November 2nd to be a day off for students.  During this time, teachers will be collaborating with one another and intentionally planning for the 2nd Quarter of instruction.  Teachers will send home assignments to be completed and returned on Tuesday, November 3rd.  Again, students will not be at Needham for school October 30th and November 2nd.  

1st Quarter Report Cards & Parent/Teacher Conferences

With the end of the 1st quarter, our teachers have been working to complete report cards that will soon be viewable in your Infinite Campus (IC) Parent Portal for grades 1-5.  Kindergarten parents can expect to receive your child’s Teaching Strategies Gold report, which is utilized across the state of Colorado.  Also be on the lookout for information on sign-ups for Parent/Teacher conferences.  These will either be held via Zoom or outside, as long as weather permits. Reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions about 1st quarter report cards or connecting for a conference. 

2nd Quarter Model & Schedule Changes

On Monday the 26th, we begin Quarter 2 of the school year.  Some students will be experiencing changes in their class placement and model. These changes have been communicated to families. If you believe your child is experiencing a change in class or model, but still have questions, please reach out by email and we will work to provide accurate information.
