• Dear Parents:                                                                                   

     

    Your daughter/son is on an outstanding, high achieving academic team.  Your child’s teachers are Ms. Facchin for Language Arts, Mr. Lane for Social Studies, Mr. Metcalf for Math and Mr. Lee for Science. Additionally, our extended team consists of Mrs. Yanez for Math Resource, Mrs. Orolfo for ELA Resource, and Mrs. Cranmer our team’s Counselor.  We are all anticipating another highly successful educational year and are looking forward to a very memorable experience.  We hope that this overview will answer most of your general concerns/questions.

    CELL PHONES

    Per Mendive policy cell phones will be confiscated if visible.  Please read this policy in your student’s agenda book and discuss this with your child.  There will be exceptions, but only for academic purposes. 

     

    EXTENSION OF LEARNING POLICY

    “LEARNING IS DOING; IF YOU AREN’T DOING, YOU AREN’T LEARNING.”

    In order to provide consistent learning and practice, all assignments are due on the designated due date. The LATEST any assignment can be turned in is ONE WEEK before the end of the quarter.  Without advance notice, special projects/activities may not be accepted late as deemed by the instructor.  ABSENCES are aligned with the WCSD policy. Students are welcome to attend our Homework Club for additional support or a quiet place to work. There is a balance of assignments between Classwork and Digital Learning; work that’s completed at home is balanced in the gradebook meaning the work is just as important and holds value as work that we’re completing in class.

     

    AGENDA BOOKS and TEAM WEBSITE

    As a parent, your daughter/son’s agenda book is your first step of communication as well as the quickest method of knowing exactly what is happening in ALL of your child’s classes. Please review the agenda book weekly, if not on a nightly basis. Class agendas will be posted on our Mendive Team Artemis website (www.washoeschools.net/artemis) , please refer to this for information on assignments for both in-person and at-home instruction. It is an extremely important tool not only to keep parents informed on class activities and due dates, but to teach students to be more organized. Please review frequently, so that we can both monitor students better.
