June 5, 2015 Friday Parent Letter
June 5, 2015
Happy Friday! It was a busy week at GeneseeSTEMAcademy! Students have been working on their Science Fair projects and end of marking period assessments. Our Science Fair is Saturday, June 6th, 11:00-2:00pm. Please, mark your calendars and plan to attend this exciting exhibit! The students have done an outstanding job with their projects and we are excited to share their accomplishments.
Our 5th and 6th grade students had a wonderful learning experience visiting the HenryFordMuseum and GreenfieldVillage. They were able to observe engineering careers first hand with really cool robots! We only wish they had more time to explore.
We have begun our end of year MAP testing. The assessment measures student’s reading, math, and science academic growth for the year. Kindergarten–second grade students are given the reading and math assessments. Students third-sixth grade are given the math, reading, and science assessments. Their MAP reports will be included with their 6th marking period report card. Students’ final report card will be mailed home. Please, make sure we have your correct summer mailing address on file. See Mrs. Harvey to make any corrections.
School Dismissal is a very busy time. Please, make sure you drive all the way back and not park on the side near our entrance. We want to keep traffic flowing and avoid any accidents. We appreciate your support.
We are now enrolling students for the 2015/16 school year. If you didn’t complete your yellow registration form and return to school, please do so immediately to reserve your child’s placement.
Students who are suspended starting June 4th will not be permitted to attend any end of year field trips or participate in Field Day.
In closing, school ends June 25th; please remember your agreement for an extended school year. We expect all students to finish their school year completely, failure to do so could jeopardize their placement for next year.
