Happy Sunday Everyone! This is Ms. Emerick with your weekly announcements for September 12, 2022.
FSA ELA retakes begin this week. Retained 10th graders, along with 11th, and 12th grade students that need to take this test will be called to test beginning tomorrow. Retake testing is very important as this is a requirement for graduation. While the governor has moved us forward with Progress Monitoring tests, the FSA tests are still in play for all students outside of students that enter freshman year this year. The FSA ELA retake and the Algebra 1 EOC Retake are both required for graduation. It is all very confusing but Mrs. Burnett has organized everything very well to ensure that students that need these tests to graduate will be called for the test. Parents, if your child did not pass either of these tests in their 10th, 11th, or 12th grade year, they will be required to earn a passing score for graduation. I am asking for your help in encouraging your student to get a restful night’s sleep and give best to the test. This means taking every testing opportunity seriously and with a positive attitude.
On September 22, from 5:30 - 7:30 , we will be hosting our Annual Title 1 Meeting along with our Multicultural Night to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month . During 8th period, students will be learning about different Hispanic cultures and will be decorating their classroom doors and classrooms. We invite you to attend this event and let us tell you the ways that we are using Title I funds to support your child’s learning and to let your child show you around their school and meet their teachers. Food will be provided and a flyer will be sent home requesting that you let us know how many people will be attending so we can ensure we have enough food.
Progress reports are available on Skyward. Please be sure to log in to Skyward Family Access to view the progress report. I encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher directly to discuss any questions or concerns.
One final note for this week. Parents, we need your support regarding dress code. Alee Academy has a uniform and all parents and students were made aware of this in the Parent and Student Handbook . Many students are coming to school out of dress code. Please understand that our uniform is in place for a reason and failure to comply with the uniform will result in students being sent home or parents will be asked to bring uniform clothes for their student. Our uniform is very simple. It includes an Alee Academy t-shirt , jeans or dress pants, denim shorts, or khaki shorts. We do not allow leggings, joggers, sweatpants, basketball shorts or hoodies. All bottoms should be either denim or a blend of cotton similar to dress shorts. The leadership team will be cracking down on dress code violations because we have now been in school for 41/2 weeks. Students that receive more than 3 violations this year can be at-risk of losing their place at Alee Academy. Parents, please let us know if you are in need of assistance for your student to be in dress code. I appreciate your support in this matter.
Have a great rest of your Sunday!
