  • Report Cards

    Posted by Tamera Nicol on 4/28/2020

    Dear Glendale Elementary School District Families, 

    With the school closure, the following information is in regards to report cards and learning for the fourth quarter term. 

    Our teachers have been reaching out to students to check-in on their academic, social and emotional wellness needs. We have also provided online and paper packets of enrichment learning opportunities to ensure all students are staying engaged academically as each family’s circumstances allow.

    Since 4th quarter academic work is meant to enrich or extend the work already learned throughout the rest of the 2019-2020 school year, the work is not graded or given as homework or as an assignment. Moreover, all essential learning standards were taught previous to quarter four to be ready for the original implementation of the AzM2 assessment and as you know, this assessment has been waived for the 2019-2020 school year. 

    In order to communicate to all stakeholders, the following items have been established:

    • 4th Quarter Report Cards will not be issued. This does not impact a child’s school record. The 3rd Quarter Report Cards are the last of the school year.
    • Each child will receive a narrative explanation of what they should work on over the summer to be ready for the next grade level from their teacher. This document along with 3rd Quarter Benchmark result for 3rd-8th grade will be provided to families by May 21st.
    • Your child’s teacher will continue to provide learning opportunities and enrichment packets are now available online through May 21st. Teachers will continue to check on your child through phone, Google Classroom, email, and/or Class Dojo, Bloom, etc.
    • When school resumes, students will have an assessment of skills to see if there are gaps between this current year and the next year prerequisite skills. When we are back in session, staff will then have a course of action to meet individual learning needs.

     

    Please stay healthy and safe as you Stay Home, Stay Healthy, and Stay Connected.

  • School Closed for Remainder of Year

    Posted by Tamera Nicol on 3/31/2020

    Dear Bici North Families,

    It is with heavy heart that we announce all GESD schools to be closed for the remainder of the school year.  We are in the business of educating students and it just does not feel right to not have our students here on campus.  That being said, we support the Governor in this decision.  Keeping our students, staff, and families safe and healthy is our first priority.

    Your homeroom teacher will be contacting you in the next couple of days to gather information regarding your Home Internet Services.  GESD is gathering data to assess next steps for delivering instruction during this closure.

    We will continue meal distributions on site from 9-11AM, Monday - Friday.  Please check the GESD website and and Facebook for the most up-to-date information.

    Please know how much we miss you all!

    Sincerely.

    Tamie Nicol
