Parent Update - January 8, 2015

Jan 8 2015

Dear Gardiner Families. 

I hope that you had a nice winter break and are easily transitioning back into the school routine. Following many family gatherings over the holidays we were able to take a short road trip to spend more time with family in Lake Tahoe. It was nice to get away and enjoy some snow and blue sky. I hope you too were able to enjoy your holiday and new year. 

At this point in the year we begin to wrap up our first semester courses and ensure things are set for second semester. 

Next week we will be inviting all students who have C's or better in all of their classes to join us on the field trip. 

These trips are intended to reward those students who have managed to keep their grades above a C at this point in the semester, while providing a focused opportunity for other students to get caught up.

With only 2 weeks left in our semester it is important for all students to make the necessary progress in their courses before report cards are completed January 23. 

Students who have not yet made the necessary academic progress and have lower than C grades in their classes will stay at school that day and work with teachers on the assignments they still need to complete. 

Their attendance on this day is imperative and students usually share that the time was well worth it. The accomplishment of this work will be reflected on their final grades. 

Eighth graders will go to Milwaukie Theater and Wunderland on Tuesday morning and the sixth and seventh graders will attend Oaks Park Roller Skating rink on Thursday morning. 

More details will be sent home with students as the dates approach. 

Please remember that you have access to your students grades through Parentvue and your student can view their grades as well through Studentvue.

We will be finalizing second semester schedules in the next week or so. Students will be given them in their advisory classes the week of January 20th. 

Please remember there is no school on January 19th in observance of Martin Luther King and there will not be school on the 23rd as teachers prepare report cards. 

There is a PTSO sponsored dance on Thursday January 22. 

I am looking forward to a great 2015.
