Dear QISS Families and Friends,
We are in full swing here at QISS. Teachers are continuing to assess the students to establish a benchmark and to help the them differentiate the instruction to meet the needs of all students. You will see that homework assignments are going to increase as we move away from learning norms and procedures in the classroom to delving deep into the content. Teachers and students have been discussing their essential questions, and are developing ideas for their upcoming key assignments at the end of the quarter.
*As a reminder and courtesy to our teachers: If you have a question or concern related to the classroom, please contact the classroom teacher, advisory teacher, or content teacher by email or phone as a first point of contact. They are the content experts in the classroom and see your child everyday. They will know your child very well, and will be able to address any academic or social concerns you may have. They are appreciative of your support in the classroom and at home.
Curriculum & Instruction:
- Parents, we continue to look for volunteers to come to the library and read books to the children. If you are interested, please contact your student's classroom teacher.
- Director's Saturday Swimming Program begins August 26th from 9am-12pm.
