Trailblazer Times 5/21/23
Happy Sunday, Trailblazers! We hope you all had a great weekend.
Students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades will take the EOG state test at the end of this school year. Should your child meet the criteria for our EOG Remediation and Readministration program, you will receive an invitation for your child to attend the retesting days on June 29th and June 30th. Transportation will be provided, and breakfast and lunch will be available.
Teacher placements for 23-24- feedback is welcome
As we begin to look towards the 23-24 school year, we will take many factors into consideration to ensure that each child is placed into a learning environment that is the right fit for them- both academically and socially. While it is not possible to honor requests for specific teachers, we do welcome your input into the process. Feedback will be accepted until June 2nd. Please email Ms. Simmons at firstname.lastname@example.org with any input you would like to share regarding the following parameters:
23-24 intent to return
As we work to make sure we have the correct number of classes at each grade level next year, it is imperative that we know if your child will/will not be returning to Banks Road. Please take this short survey (must take it more than once if you have multiple children) if your child is in grades K-4. Current 5th graders do not need to take it. Thank you!
EOG proctors needed
EOG testing will be here before we know it (June 20, 21, 22) and we will need volunteers to assist with proctoring. Please review the available time slots and click on the box(es) to sign up. You may choose as many as you wish. Remember you MUST complete the required volunteer registration & background check in the office (and be approved) prior to testing. Email Mrs. Dana at email@example.com if you have questions concerning how to register for volunteering or to check your status.
If you have specific questions about the testing process or proctoring, please reach out to the Testing Coordinator, Mrs. Alford, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please access the WCPSS dress code here for a reminder of what is/is not permitted.
It is the time of year to start planning for Field Day at Banks Road. This year, Field Day will take place on Friday, June 2nd. Field Day for grades K-2 will take place from 9:45-11:45. Field Day for grades 3-5 will take place from 1:00-3:00. This is an event that cannot occur without the help of the entire Banks Road community. We will need numerous volunteers to help run the many different events we are planning for Field Day. Volunteers must be approved by WCPSS. You can sign up by following this link.
