EXPLORER TEAM- May and June 2013
The months of May and June will be very busy for the Explorer Team. The Interim Assessment testing for the state in preparation for the PARCC Test has just been completed. This test will replace the NECAP Test in the near future. Our 8th grade students are preparing for the science NECAP test to be administered during May 7th - May 9th... On April 3rd we hosted our annual ESL parent night. At this time parents were able to ask questions about our ESL program, students’ transition and requirements for high school as well as general questions about the Park View Community. During this meeting, students and their parents/guardians met with Mrs. Romanelli, the ESL program supervisor, Park View administrators, Mrs. Conley their Park View guidance counselor, team teachers, and teachers and students from Cranston East. There were also translators available that evening to assist parents. Team teachers are now looking into placements for returning students which will be determine by a combinations of grades, classroom performance, NECAP and ACCESS Tests scores, and teacher recommendations. These results will be included in students’ final report cards in June. Diversity week will take place from April 29th through May 3rd. Activities have been planned throughout the week culminating with Multicultural Night on May 2nd at 6:00pm here at Park View. All families are welcome! Explorer Team students are preparing their country project posters that will be displayed that evening. The third session of after school activities begins on May 20th. All students have the opportunity to join any of the activities however, there is no busing available. Park View’s Eighth Grade Honors Night will be held on May 29, 2013 at 7:00pm in the school’s auditorium. A letter will go home to all students who will be receiving honors at that time. The Explorer Team Honors will be held on June 11, 2013 at 10:00am in room G-1, all parents and families are invited. We are in the process of planning our annual field trip to the Rhode Island’s beautiful coast; a letter will be coming home shortly with details regarding the date. For many of our students this will be their first visit to our beautiful shore. While visiting one of Rhode Island’s most beautiful beaches, students will investigate first- hand the wonders of the ocean. Using a checklist they will gather various objects from the ocean’s shore. Although this is a busy time of year please encourage your student to remain focused. Fourth quarter grades very important and used as part of their placement. . Report cards will NOT be sent home: your child will receive them in school. Mr. Calner, Mrs. DeCosta and Mrs. Hopkins wish all of our students a happy and safe summer vacation. Best of luck to all our 8th grade students going to Cranston High School East, and we look forward to seeing our 7th graders in September.
