PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES

Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences (PTC) are scheduled for Friday, November 11, from 9:00-5:00 PM. At PTC, parents are invited to meet with their child’s teachers to discuss student progress and goals. Parents need to log into PowerSchool to sign up for appointments. Instructions on how to register for PTC are HERE.

Registration begins on Thursday, November 3, at 8:00 AM, and ends on Wednesday, November 9, at 4:00 PM.

ECC
This year, instead of having PTC, ECC students will have a normal school day. ECC parents do not need to sign up for PTC. For specific questions about your child’s learning, please contact your child's teacher.

CURBSIDE LIBRARY

The Curbside Library continues to be open during online learning on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 3:30-4:30 PM. On Mondays, there will be a Lobby Library checkout station in the main lobby. On Wednesdays and Fridays, the Curbside Library will be set up at the gate entrance.

Come talk to the librarians and return your books. If you want to borrow new books, please place holds in Destiny (the library system) by 3:00 PM.

SECONDARY SEMESTER-BASED GRADING

For Secondary grade levels, the district is switching from a quarter-based grading system to a semester-based grading system. In other words, grades will no longer be fixed at the end of the quarter; they will instead be cumulative throughout each semester. This means that the Quarter 1 and Quarter 3 progress reports can still provide important information about a student’s progress but these grades will continue to accumulate and change for the remainder of the semester.

There is no change for Elementary grade levels.

If you have any questions, please contact Principal of Teaching & Learning, Amanda Thornton, at amanda.thornton@wyischina.com.
