In case you missed the Parent and Leadership Circle Meeting, please see the recorded virtual meeting here.


Aug Prep hosted its first Parent and Leadership Circle of the year. The presentation was led by the Director of Enrollment, Sean O’Reilly and translated by Fatima Munoz, Enrollment Coordinator. Families learned about the enrollment process for new and current students, the cost to educate a student at Aug Prep, Choice reimbursement dollars and plans to expand in August of 2023. Ms. Alamo closed by informing parents of our K4 - 8 Open House and encouraged to spread the word about our growth. 


Parents stayed after the presentation to complete the school application for new students, register for choice assistance in February and register for our K4 - 8th Grade Open House. We had a combination of 25 in-person and virtual attendees.

Good Afternoon Middle School Parents,

 

Thank you for your continued support and partnership in ensuring our scholars experience success.  We are writing to inform you that your scholar will be participating in our upcoming MAP testing. We take the MAP test three times a year in reading, math, and science. This test assists us with identifying what areas your scholar is excelling in and what areas your scholar needs additional support in.  We use this information while planning for instruction and assigning your scholar to an intervention and enrichment program. This information is extremely vital as we want to ensure that your scholar is prepared for the next grade level, high school, college, and beyond. Please encourage your scholar to do their very best on these assessments.

 

Here a few steps for how you can support your child experience success:

 

  1. Please mark your calendars for January 23rd-February 8th. All scholars need to be present each day so that we can be sure all tests are complete. Please try to not schedule any appointments during this window. PLEASE TRY TO SCHEDULE APPOINTMENTS AFTER THESE DATES AS EARLY PICK-UPS WILL AFFECT THEIR SCORES. If your scholar is out due to quarantine, we will be in contact with you.

  2. Make sure your scholar is getting enough rest during the testing window (and always!) Go to sleep early, put the electronics away, and make sure to have a restful night each night!

  3. Make sure your student has a healthy breakfast or encourage them to eat our breakfast at school. We offer healthy options each day that are free to each student. They should not be eating sugary items before the school day as this can affect their attention. If you send lunch to school, please send healthy items.

  4. Cheer them on! We know our Aug Prep scholars will do fantastic. We will be doing a variety of test preparations and joyful incentives to encourage our kids!

Thank you again for your continued support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] 

 

In Christ,

Jim Kalupa

Middle School Principal

Buenas tardes padres de familia de la escuela intermedia,

 

Gracias por su continuo apoyo y asociación para garantizar que nuestros estudiantes experimenten el éxito. Le escribimos para informarle que su estudiante participará en nuestras próximas pruebas de MAP. Tomamos el examen de MAP tres veces al año en lectura, matemáticas y ciencias. Este examen nos ayuda a identificar en qué áreas se destaca su estudiante y en qué áreas necesita apoyo adicional. Usamos esta información mientras planificamos los cursos y asignamos a su estudiante a un programa de intervención y enriquecimiento. Esta información es vital ya que queremos asegurarnos de que su estudiante esté preparado para el próximo año, la escuela secundaria, la universidad y más allá. Anime a su estudiante a hacer lo mejor que pueda en estos exámenes.

 

Estos son algunos pasos sobre cómo puede ayudar a su hijo/a a experimentar el éxito:

 

  1. Por favor marque sus calendarios del 23 de enero al 8 de febrero. Todos los estudiantes deben estar presentes todos los días para que podamos estar seguros de que todos los exámenes estén completos. Intente no programar ninguna cita durante este tiempo. POR FAVOR INTENTE PROGRAMAR CITAS DESPUÉS DE ESTAS FECHAS YA QUE LAS SALIDAS TEMPRANAS AFECTARÁN SUS PUNTAJES. Si su estudiante está fuera debido a la cuarentena, nos pondremos en contacto con usted.

  2. Asegúrese de que su estudiante descanse lo suficiente durante la ventana de exámenes (¡y siempre!) ¡Duerma temprano, guarde los dispositivos electrónicos y asegúrese de que tenga una noche de descanso todas las noches!

  3. Asegúrese de que su estudiante tenga un desayuno saludable o animelo/a a comer nuestro desayuno en la escuela. Ofrecemos opciones saludables todos los días que son gratis para cada estudiante. No deben comer cosas azucaradas antes del día escolar ya que esto puede afectar su enfoque. Si envía almuerzo a la escuela, envíe comida saludable.

  4. ¡Anímelos! Sabemos que a nuestros estudiantes de Aug Prep les irá fantástico. ¡Haremos una variedad de preparaciones para exámenes e incentivos divertidos para animar a nuestros niños/a!

 

Gracias de nuevo por su continuo apoyo. Si tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo a [email protected] 

 

En Cristo,

Jim Kalupa

Director de la Escuela Intermedia
