Saxe Daytime Open House

April, 2014

Dear Saxe Parent/Guardian,

You are invited to attend a “Daytime Open House” during the weeks of April 28 and May 5, 2014.  The schedule below depicts the specific day, date and time for each team’s/homeroom’s open house.  Our format during the daytime open house replicates the core academic rotation portion of our traditional evening open house in October.  Parents spend approx. 10 minutes in each core classroom as they rotate amongst all four subjects:  Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science.   Some Gr. 5-8 teams may decide to host the entire program in one single classroom.

SBAC Follow-Up Letter

As we all work to develop curriculum and assessments that reflect what students will need to know, understand and do in the 21st Century, we need to design and validate next generation resources. This includes assessments. The Smarter Balanced Assessment field test, which is designed to be a "no stakes" event for students and teachers will begin during the month of March. The test window will be spread out over time due to the computer based administration. Testing is required by state mandate in grades 3-8 and the high school (in this case grade 11). Additionally, privacy and confidentiality protocols continue to be in place at district and state as in past. For more information, please see attachment below.

Many Saxe Students have already completed some wonderful projects for class that utilized technology.  Why don't you come share that with the world at the NCPS - Tech Night 2014?

 Click here for more information and the opportunity to send in your application.

NCPS Tech Night provides students and educators an opportunity to showcase how technology enhances and encourages learning. Technology is not a means to an end but rather a spark that makes magic. Tech Night is an evening that highlights our sparks, the students, as they demonstrate the uses of technology for innovative projects created outside of school and within the school.
