Student-Led Goal-Setting Meetings
Wednesday, September 19, 2018 8:55 AM

You’re invited to student-led, goal-setting meetings on Wednesday, September 26, which is an early release day.

Meetings begin at 2:00 and continue until 7:30 PM. Each family will have a 15-minute slot to meet as a crew (student, guardian, and teacher) to discuss and create a plan for the success of the student.

The student will lead the discussion and share their strengths and areas for growth based on their grades and behavior. Leading this discussion helps develop essential skills that adolescents need to take responsibility for their education. Learn more about the value of student-led goal-setting meetings in this article from Education World magazine.

This meeting gives the student an opportunity to look at their progress and set an intentional goal for the year. Teachers and family members will then discuss ways to improve and support this goal. Students will practice running the meeting during Crew prior to the actual meeting.

If you have questions about grades, curriculum, or behavior, feel free to check the parent portal, email your student’s teachers, and/or stop by our drop-in conferences on October 16 from 4:30 - 8:00 PM and October 17 from 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM.

Students will bring home a letter with time slots to sign up for goal-setting meetings. If you have specific questions about goal-setting meetings, contact your student’s Crew leader.

Immunization Records
Wednesday, September 19, 2018 8:50 AM

All students entering 7th grade must have Meningitis (meningococcal) and Tdap immunizations, or a notarized medical or conscientious exemption document. Bring in any updated immunization forms to the JPS Health Office, or have your doctor fax them to 612-668-4050.

2018 MCA and MTAS Individual Student Reports
Wednesday, September 19, 2018 8:40 AM

Individual Student Reports from MCA and MTAS assessments will be shared differently this year. The MPS Department of Research, Evaluation, Assessment, and Accountability (REAA) will upload the 2018 MCA and MTAS scores to the Parent Portal instead of mailing the reports home. This change allows families to have more immediate and ongoing access to the results, and eliminating postage is a big cost savings.

Paper reports have been requested for all JPS students. Math and ELA teachers will distribute these reports to students by the end of September. The distribution date will be shared via ‘Around the Horn’ and robo calls.

Homework House
Wednesday, September 19, 2018 8:30 AM

Need a place to work on homework? Homework House is here for you!

Homework House provides a safe space for middle and high school students to work on homework after school on Tuesdays from 3:10 PM to 5 PM in the lounge at St. John’s Lutheran Church (49th and Nicollet).

Students of different ages and backgrounds sit side-by-side to motivate and mentor each other. While it is our goal to have tutors available, Homework House is not a tutoring session. We invite students of all academic strengths and interests — Homework House is a place for all.

Interested? Just show up! No pre-registration necessary. All are welcome.
