May 30, 2014 Friday Parent Letter
May 30, 2014
Happy Friday! We had an exciting week with a spectacular visit with Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) Board of Control and Dow touring our school! Our Student Council Taim Allah Muhammad president and Isaiah McNeal vice president were great tour guides showcasing the highlights of our school. I believe our guest were impressed with our STEM program and plans for the future. SVSU is our authorizer and has provided excellent support as we launched our first year! They are seeking ways to continue the partnership to enhance student and staff learning for a successful educational journey.
Parent/Teacher conferences will continue next week Tuesday, June 3 and Thursday, June 5th from 4:30-7:30pm. Please, make sure you attend this important final conference for the school year. Due to conferences there will be no after school activities next week.
Attendance is critical for students’ success! We have an extended school year, with school ending Thursday, June 26th. Students will have their end of year assessments starting June 9th thru June 24th. Students who aren’t present for assessments are in jeopardy of not being promoted to the next grade. We appreciate your support in making sure your child is present and ready for success until school ends.
We have many exciting adventures planned for the end of school including “Transition Day”, when students will visit their class for next year! If you haven’t returned your Letter of Intent” to reserve a placement for your child next year, please send a note to school a.s.a.p. We are accepting new enrollments and wouldn’t want to give up your child’s placement for next year. Failure to provide written communication by June 26 to reserve your child’s placement at Genesee STEM Academy could result in removal from the school.
