Morey’s 8th Grade Elitches and Continuation 2015

 

Dear Class of 2015,

As you know, the 8th grade trip to Elitches and Continuation is rapidly approaching. Please remember that in order to participate in both events, you must maintain a 95% attendance rate, which is a district expectation. Strong attendance is necessary in order to have a full and enriched classroom experience. For those of you that have an attendance rate below the expectation, you will be meeting with a staff member frequently over the next few weeks to ensure that you have made up time in order to become eligible for both Elitches and Continuation. We are very hopeful that the make-up opportunities will allow all students to participate and celebrate in both of these events.

In order to make up time, Morey will be providing the following opportunities through the course of the next several weeks:

  • After School Tutoring in the Library on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:30-4:30pm. You must sign in and be an active and respectful participant in the tutoring session.
  • Saturday school from 8-12 (4/18, 4/25, 5/2, 5/9, 5/16). You must sign in and be an active and respectful participant during Saturday school. You can bring homework and/or make-up assignment described in #3.
  • Obtain an eligibility contract from Ms. Gianatasio and working with your classroom teachers to create assignments with specific number of make-up hours the assignment is worth. Please note that the assignment must be completed with a proficiency rate of 3 or 4. Upon completion of the assignment at a 3 or 4 proficiency, the teacher must sign off on the eligibility form and you must return it to Ms. Gianatasio.
  • 9 days are allotted as absences to hit the 95% threshold (excused or unexcused)
  • 3 tardies equal one day of absence
  • 2 hours of made up time = 1 day of absence

As we enter into the final stretch of the 2014-2015 school year, we look forward to having all of you participate and enjoy Elitches and Continuation.

Best Wishes,

Principal Tonk
