Field Trip Update & Late Work Policy

The field trip has been rescheduled for Thursday, 12/22, the day before vacation starts! Since I already have the permission slips and payment taken care of, I will expect the same for this new date unless I hear from you specifically that your child CANNOT attend. Students need a bagged snack and lunch and are asked to dress nicely for the theater. We are very lucky that the theater group offered to do a new show - let's hope the weather cooperates this time!

Also, the seventh grade teachers would like to improve student work completion and understanding of due dates, so we would like to start practicing the Traip Academy late work policy with the students starting this trimester. If students miss major assessments, they will have two days to communicate with the teacher and make a plan for getting the work done. They will then have two weeks to complete the missing work. We are committed to all students and their success, but we also want them to understand time limits, due dates, and skills that need to be built upon within a timely manner. We will have many reminders for students to develop their independent learner skills and communicate effectively with their teachers about making up missing work.
