School is cancelled today due to snow. See you tomorrow!
BALANCED CALENDAR The district has established a Steering Committee to explore the concept of a balanced calendar and whether it will be beneficial to our district. This is something that most school districts in our county are exploring as well. Two districts are already in a balanced calendar this school year. What is a balanced calendar? With a balanced calendar, students attend class the same number of days and receive the same instructional hours as a traditional calendar school. A balanced calendar modifies the traditional 180 day calendar to keep the learning process continuous. Students have periodic, shorter breaks rather than one long break. If you were unable to attend the state-wide Balanced Calendar Parent Webinar a few weeks ago, here is the recording of the meeting. https://youtu.be/MRPJ1YoU4Jk As a parent/guardian, please let me know if you would like to serve on this district committee. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 654-7985. Families will be receiving more information on Balanced Calendar and requesting input after the holidays. Please let me know if you have any questions in the meantime.
Have you completed the communication survey from conferences? Last chance.... two names will be drawn tomorrow (Wednesday, Nov 10) at 12 pm (noon) for $50 gift cards to Applebee's! See ClassDojo for survey link, if needed.
FREE STATEWIDE WEBINAR - LIVE SPANISH TRANSLATION AVAILABLE Families, and community members are invited to join this webinar to learn how a modified/balanced calendar can support equity and student achievement! Washington’s regional Educational Service Districts, OSPI, and other state partners are hosting webinars throughout this year for schools and communities to come together on this topic. On November 17th, David Hornak, the Executive Director for the National Year Round School Association, and a parent panel will share insights for communities, families, and schools to consider. Like many districts in our area, Union Gap is evaluating this opportunity for the coming school year and we would like your feedback.
