Team Announcements for April 8th-12th

Here is this week's Team Newsletter

Here are the important updates and announcements for this week:

1.) 3rd Quarter report cards will home on Wednesday to coincide with Student Led Conferences.

2.) Please join us for our Student Led Conferences on Wednesday, April 10, 2019.  Student Led Conferences are an opportunity for your child to share their learning, progress and goals for the year.  Parents and guardians should sign up for a 40 minute time slot with their child's core teachers. Elective teachers will be in the media center where students and parents can visit before or after their core subjects conferences.  Two food trucks will be in the carpool loop and families can eat dinner at the picnic tables or in the cafeteria. Finally, the DRMS PTA will be selling spirit wear. We are looking forward to seeing all of our Dolphin Families on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 for Student Led Conferences!

Please sign-up for a specific time slot under your student’s homeroom teacher. Sign-Up using the following: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090a4baaad2ba46-student

3.) WCPSS is conducting the Panorama Family Survey again this school year.  One of the pillars within Vision 2020 is "Community Engagement," which centers around Parent Engagement.  In support of this, WCPSS will continue its successful Family Survey effort and aim to gather actionable data from all parents and guardians in the district.  Using this data, WCPSS school and district leaders will be able to both assess where they stand relative to their goals in Vision 2020 and better understand how they can align their resources to improve identified areas for growth.  The survey asks families about a variety of topics relevant to their experiences with their schools and district (barriers to engagement, family support, family efficacy, family engagement, school climate). All surveys will be administered from Monday, March 25 - Friday, May 3.  Parents/guardians with an email address on file with the district will be emailed a survey from Panorama. Parents and guardians will be asked to complete one survey per school that they have a child attending.

4.) Here is the PTA Newsletter for this Month: PTA Newsletter
