THE GOLDEN TICKET THEATER PRESENTS ALADDIN
Students participating in Golden Ticket Theater performed Aladdin and it was outstanding! We were impressed with students' ability to sing, dance and act! We hope that you attend a show this weekend. Showtimes are the following:
Friday, May 20th at 6:30PM
Saturday, May 21st at 1:00 PM & 6:30PM
STUDENTS APPLY FINANCIAL LITERACY DURING MARKET DAY
Third grade concluded their study of financial literacy by hosting a Market Day. As students learned about the concepts of marketing and supply and demand, they created their own products that they priced and “sold” to their classmates and parents. Students then reflected on which products sold out and why. We were proud of students’ creativity, which was evident in their products and advertising.
LOST & FOUND
Lost items will be on display starting Monday, May 21st outside of the Art room. Please have your child(ren) check for any lost items. All items will be donated at the end of the week.
SUPPORT THE PARKER TASK FORCE NEXT WEEK
Gold Rush has donated over 5,200 food items to the Parker Task Force this school year through our No Waste efforts in the cafeteria! This food would have otherwise gone in the trash. We were just made aware that the Task Force is significantly down items. We also know that this is a critical time of year for many children and families as they head off to summer. We will be collecting nonperishable food items for the Task Force all next week. Please bring canned or boxed goods to end of the year celebrations and events and place them in collection bins in the front office and vestibule. This small act will make an incredible difference for many in Parker.
SPRING ELEMENTARY PROGRESS REPORTS (EPR) RELEASED MAY 30th
Teachers are celebrating students’ growth as they complete spring Elementary School Progress Reports (EPRs). EPRs will be released to parents on Wednesday, May 30th, through Parent Portal. You will be able to access your child's EPR on this date by following the directions below.
· Click on the Parent Resources Tab
· Select Parent Portal and use your credentials to log in.
· Click "View Elementary Progress Report" under your child's picture
As you may recall, you are able to view your child’s information in two ways. The highlights page includes a snapshot of how your child performed on content standards (reading, writing and math) and how your child met our school expectations of Going for the G.O.L.D. Also included in the highlights page are general classroom comments and individual student comments. The comprehensive view allows you to see how your child did on all subject areas and specials. You are able to view any additional comments for the specific content areas under the comprehensive view. You are able to access both formats by clicking on the links at the top of the EPR.
