Greetings from the Principal
As we all gear up for a new school year, I wanted to point out a few important items of information:
As you will see on our home page, the district has implemented some changes to our grading system at the middle school level. These changes will help us ensure that our students' efforts are appropriately recognized and will help us to better transition into the high school years. Among the changes is a switch to how we calculate grades, a new minimum passing score for marking periods and final grades, a change to how geometry and algebra courses are weighted and new criteria for Honor Roll and High Honor Roll.
I encourage you to take a moment to view the district presentation on these middle school grading changes. It is very informative and will help spell out all the changes with examples. If you have any questions you are most welcome to discuss them with me either by calling or emailing me, seeing me during Back to School Night or at one of our Coffee with the Principal sessions come fall.
- Student schedules will be available on the Portal on Tuesday, August 25th.
- Bus Passes will be available on the Portal beginning Wednesday, August 26th.
Our Back to School Nights will be held on:
- Thursday, September 24th for 6th Grade
- Tuesday, September 29th for 7th and 8th Grades
We at Goetz wish everyone a safe and relaxing end to your summer!
