We are excited about expanding Standards Based Grading here at Price! This best practice grade reporting system is going to tell us SO MUCH MORE about each student’s learning, and how we can work together to help them achieve their goals. Over the last two years about 71% of our elementary teachers in Republic have piloted SBG, and now 100% of Kindergarten through 5th grade across our district will be receiving grade cards and report cards using the Standards Based Grading practice. To learn more about SBG, including a video explaining WHY this is best for students and example grade cards, visit www.republicschools.org/SBG.
Just a friendly reminder to all our new/returning Price Families, on our afternoon pick-up procedure. We have sent home white cardstock student name plates. Each student should have reiceved one, even if pick up is not a regular form on transporation for your student(s). We ask that you keep this 'name plate' in your vehicle, to help when in the car pick-up lane.
At pick-up, please slide the 'name plate' into the front dashboard so that we are ablet o call your student to meet you, at a specific cone. This will help the pick-up process move quick and orderly.
Please remember that if you do NOT have your 'name plate' with you/the responsible party, you will be asked to pull aaround and park at the front office, to get a new 'name plate' from the front office. Photo ID will be required...even for our regulars. After you receive your new 'name plate' you will be asked to join back in the pick-up line to pick up your student(s).
We understand that there will be times that you are in a hurry or have simply forgot to hand off your name plate. We just hope that you understand our purpose is to keep all children safe and our line moving along. If you have any questions, or have lost/misplaced your student(s) name plate, plese contact their homeroom teacher, so that we can get you a new one ASAP.
Thanks again for your patience and understanding in this procedure!
