Weekly Updates and Reminders 09/24/23

Sunday, September 24, 2023 Weekly STAR Family Updates

Good afternoon Morehead STAR Family! This is Mrs. Traumuller with your weekly updates and reminders for the week ahead! We have so much information to relay this week, make sure to pay attention and get your calendar ready!

Monday, the 25th of September is a teacher workday with no school for students. Students have begun taking their first round of NWEA testing. This is an assessment that they do not need to study for but that gives us an idea of where students are and what needs we need to fill in order for them to have a successful year. They take this assessment on their devices and it crucial that they have their devices daily that are fully charged and ready to go for learning. Thank you for supporting us with the devices. Once the results are in whole school, we will begin looking at in school tutoring options and groups for learning supports and enhancements. Please also mark your calendars for our Fall pictures which will be held on October 10th.

STAR Families with bus riders - please help us reinforce positive bus behavior. Students should not have devices out, they should be in their seats unless the bus is stopped and they are getting on or off the bus, and they should be talking at a level 1. We are seeing an increase in bus write ups due to behaviors that are not within our schoolwide expectations. Students will be issued warnings at first but riding the bus must come hand and hand with good behavior as it is a major safety concern. Thank you for speaking to your STAR about this behavior.

If you are the parent of a kindergarten student, please ensure that we have both your NC Health Assessment on file and the updated Vaccination records no later than the end of day on 9/27. If we do not have these documents on file, the students will not be allowed to come to school after this date. Our wish is to have them all on file so that all of our STARS can continue to learn and thrive.
