Restorative Practices Workshop
Come learn more about NTA’s approach to student support and discipline on Wednesday, February 22 at 5:15, when the PAC will be sponsoring a restorative practices workshop. Restorative Practice is a social science that studies how to build social capital and achieves social discipline through participatory learning and decision making, helping to improve relationships, reduce conflict, and stop bullying. We hope to see you there.
As you know, there’s a strong connection between attendance and student achievement. To recognize our Kindergarten thru fifth grade students who maintain perfect attendance each week, we’ve created new celebrations. All parents and guardians of kindergarten and first grade students with perfect attendance thru Thursday will be invited to a game fair in the cafe on Friday at 3:10. Parents and guardians are welcome to bring in their own games. All parents of second and third graders with perfect attendance through Thursday will be invited to a Friday morning breakfast with their child in the cafe. Families are welcome to bring their own breakfast. Fourth and fifth grade students with perfect attendance through Friday will participate in an extra recess period on Friday afternoon. More information about these great incentives is coming home with your child today.
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC test, is scheduled to begin the week of Monday, March 6. This test measures student mastery of the Common Core Standards, the set of standards to which all core curriculum at NTA is aligned. The test is administered to all students grades 3-8. A schedule will be sent home soon with exact dates for each grade level.
