Hello Parkmont Families,
Here we are, less than 20 days of school to go! The next few weeks will be busy with wrapping up the end of the school year and lots of fun filled activities the teachers have planned.
Smarter Balanced Testing is still going on in some grades, you should receive score reports in August. Teachers and students have worked hard on these tests and we should remember these tests are just one indicator of student progress.
Next week, we will have a Parkmont Family Music Night on Monday, May 21. All Parkmont students are welcome to attend. This is a family event; all students must be accompanied by an adult.
I hope you enjoy your 3-day weekend coming soon, are you doing something or going somewhere fun? I sure hope so!
Enjoy your week!
Here's the latest newsletter.
Message to parents of 4th, 5th and 6th Graders about Health, Puberty and Sexuality Education
On May 2, 2018, the Board voted to approve the staff-recommended Sexual Health and Puberty Education curriculum for grades 7-9, which will take place in classrooms prior to the end of this school year 2018. Parents can continue to opt their children out of part, or all, of the lessons. Though the Trustees approved a Board Policy to provide instruction for grades 4-6, they voted down the recommended curriculum. A task force will be convened after July 1 to examine other materials and make a new recommendation to the Board by January 2019, for implementation in spring 2019. There will not be any Health, Puberty and Sexuality Education for elementary students until then.
Please email your email address and your student's name to Cathy in the office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be added to our distribution list. The school uses the newsletter to communicate important information to parents.
