- Positivity Project – This week’s trait is Social Intelligence. Please see the attached document.
- Morning Drop-Off – Once students are dropped off on campus, they are not allowed to leave campus, even if they arrive before 8:30. We’ve had a number of students do this recently and it poses a liability risk. Please discuss with your student.
- Google Classroom & Student Progress Monitoring – Throughout the second semester, you may receive updates from teachers if your child is missing assignments or below a 70% in a class. This progress monitoring will be done about every 2-3 weeks throughout the second semester at the middle school. You and the student will receive an email from the teacher(s). As always, you can check on your child’s progress by having them log in to Google Classroom. Just in case, they say they do not know how – they do – and you can remind them that it is their full email address and the same password they use to log in to their ChromeBooks each day at school…just in case they need a little reminder . If you have any questions, you can reach out to your child’s teacher for more information.
- Norte is offering after-school bike programs from the Greenspire campus once again this spring. A few spots remain for the 5-week program, beginning May 3. Two programs are available, the Rally Team for recreational mountain biking, or the Race Team for those who are more interested in advancing their skill, riding faster and entering more advanced training. Additionally, Norte offers both Mountain Bike Team and Adventure Bike Club programs at various locations around Traverse City. Registration for after-school and summer camp programs can be found on the Norte website.
