As we approach the middle of April (hard to believe) I just want to reiterate to parents/guardians we have begun the 4th and last marking period of this school year. We have approximately 43 school days left. Please continue to collaborate with your child's classroom teacher regarding any topics of concern along with their assignments. Report Cards will be available on the Parent Portal on Monday April 19th. As a school community, we will continue working together to finish this school year strong! Please inform your child(ren) how proud I am of them and the effort they put forth each day.

Greetings School 18 Families,

It’s hard to believe that we have almost arrived at the midway point of the school year! Some may say it has gone fast, others the opposite. As we approach the 2nd semester, I wanted to share a few announcements:

 January 29 – Marking Period 2 Closes

 February 4 – Report Cards Available in Parent Portal

 February 12 – 100th Day of School

 February 15 – No School (President’s Day)

Asynchronous Wednesday's

 Beginning Wednesday, January 27th, the last Wednesday of every month will by an asynchronous learning day. Students will have an opportunity to complete assignments at their own pace, as well as work independently to hand in any missing/late work. Teachers will participate in professional development and/or provide individualized support to students struggling to complete new or missing work.

Small Group Lessons

 Beginning February 1st , teachers will be scheduling afternoon small group instruction. The purpose of these small group lessons is to increase contact time and create greater opportunities for student engagement, personalized instruction and differentiated content. Students will be scheduled for one (1) 30-60 minute small group lesson per month. Your child’s teacher will communicate your child’s group and schedule once complete. During these small group lessons the teachers will not have office hours.

I have been observing virtual classes the last three weeks and I just want you all to know I am so proud of all your children! They continue to persevere and work hard through these challenging times. Our teachers and staff continue to provide excellent instruction while supporting our students/families in a caring manner. I am proud to be the Principal of this great school and community.

Have a great weekend!

Stay safe.

As we close in on the conclusion of 2020, I wanted to once again express my sincere gratitude for your continued patience, collaboration, support, and dedication to our great school! We continue to face challenges and obstacles, but most importantly we face them TOGETHER! All stakeholders which have a part in the School 18 family continue to portray what a school family looks like. I want to wish you all a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year! Please take time this break to relax, unwind, spend time with family, and have some fun.....You certainly earned it! Tomorrow Wednesday December 23rd is our Festive Sweater/shirt day. The school day will conclude at 1:15pm for all students and staff (NO office hours tomorrow). School will resume on Monday January 4th. Again, if we can be of assistance in anyway please do not hesitate to contact the school. Continue to stay safe, wear your masks, and practice social distancing as you celebrate the holiday season.

Mr. Chiera
