Success Maker -12th Month Summer Program
As an ongoing educational incentive the Catholic School Region of Manhattan and Mr. Tweed, the regional superintendent, has obtained funding for a summer initiative for all students in grades K-7 to continue the learning that has occurred here at OLQM from September to June.
While it has been our custom to assign books to be read over the summer months - this new initiative will focus instead on online learning in both Reading and Mathematics.
Students will be given access to Success Maker an on-line program that we have been piloting in grades 2, 3 and 4 and is similar to Freckle which we have been using the last two years here at OLQM. Students will be expected to do one hour of Reading and one hour of Mathematics per week and will be expected to complete and pass these lessons on Success Maker.
Teaching staff will be available twice a week Tuesdays 9:00 AM -1:00 PM and Thursdays 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM to assist students who are experiencing difficulty or do not have access to an electronic device to complete the assignments. Parents will be called once a week if the assignments have not been completed and reminded that this summer work will count as a student’s first grade in Reading and Mathematics in September.
Should you have any questions that you would like to directly ask me please feel free to see me on Sunday June 23rd from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM or send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recently parents have forgotton that there exists a Parent/Student Handbook that was distributed in
September 2018. The goverance of the school follows the rules of NYS education law along with policies that have goverened Catholic Schools for many years. Some malcontent parents recently have been vocal with teachers over rules that are basically common sense:
1. If a child is late - that means they have missed part of the school day- see NYS regulations below.
