Parents are encouraged to attend parent conferences to meet with the teachers and hear about your son/daughter’s progress. Students are encouraged to attend with their parents. Administrators and counselors will also be on hand for questions. As usual, our fall conferences are “arena style.” All teachers will be set up in the commons. Stop by, pick up your student’s midterm progress report, and visit with any or all of the teachers. We do ask that you limit your conversation to five minutes per class. If you need or want a more extended conference, we are happy to schedule an appointment for you at a later time.
*Please note: all staff will be leaving at noon on Friday. There are no afternoon or evening conferences on Friday.
We look forward to seeing you!
Washington Achievement Award combines state’s Accountability Index and federal accountability criteria
OLYMPIA— A total of 413 schools are 2013 Washington Achievement Award winners. Winners were notified Monday via email from State Superintendent Randy Dorn and State Board of Education Chair Dr. Kristina Mayer.
The Washington Achievement Award is sponsored by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education. Award winners are selected using the state’s Accountability Index and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Waiver.
“It is important that we use the revised Achievement Index to not only provide feedback to schools and districts on their progress, but also to identify schools with exemplary student performance,” said Mayer. “These awards shine the light on what is working well in schools across Washington.”
Schools are recognized as top performers in one of six categories:
Dorn supports this collaboration. “So many schools in our state are doing good work to make a difference for kids,” he said. “These awards represent some of the best. It’s an honor to recognize them and celebrate their success.”
The award-winning schools will be honored at a ceremony on April 24 at Timberline High School in Lacey.
