Parent Orientation Reminder

reminder4

Dear Parents,

Sixth Grade Parent Orientation is tomorrow from 5:30-6:10. This event is for parents only! This is not a drop in event, so our start and stop time are firm since other grade levels are also presenting. If you cannot attend, please do not worry, we will post all the slides and information on our blog on Friday. Please do not park in the school parking lots as these spots are reserved for teachers and staff. There is two-hour parking available on the street and nearby parking decks. Please contact your Crew teacher if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Exploris Grade 6 Weekly Letter

Welcome back! We are so happy to be back at school. We hope all of you stayed safe during Hurricane Florence. Please remember that Parent Orientation was rescheduled for this Thursday, September 20th from 5:30-6:10. 

SIXTH GRADE OVERNIGHT FIELD EXPERIENCE: Sixth grade’s overnight field experience will be March 18-March 19. We will be visiting AstroCamp in Clover, VA. http://astrocampschoolva.org/programs/ Parent chaperones and drivers will be needed and we will send out more information about chaperoning soon. The trip will cost $150 for overnight lodging, programs, and meals. The chaperone fee is $70. A $50 deposit is due by Wednesday, October 10th. You may pay in full or send in your deposit prior to the 10th if you would like.  If you cannot make this deposit or need assistance for the cost of this field trip, please contact your Crew teacher as soon as possible.

From the Student/Parent Handbook Section 2: Field Experiences and Service Learning

Each year, multiple classes will take an overnight trip. It will last 1-5 days, depending on the grade level. These trips are a big part of who we are as a school. They allow our crews to develop positive cultures, stretch students beyond their comfort level, and create opportunities for leadership and adventure. Students who are comfortable taking risks out of the classroom often gain the confidence to take bigger risks in the classroom, building confidence as leaders and collaborators. Student attendance is NOT optional.If you are not willing to let your child participate in these overnight trips, then this school is not a good match for you. Costs of overnight trips will be communicated to families as early as possible in the planning processes.

Science Olympiad: Students interested in joining Science Olympiad should complete the participation form and turn it in as soon as possible this week. The club will meet every Monday from 3:15 – 4:30 pm to prepare for our February 2019 Regional Tournament. If you did not attend the informational meeting but are interested in joining, please email Helene or Emily as soon as possible. Our first meeting will be Monday, Sept 24th but please turn in your participation forms as soon as possible.

Minecraft/Gaming Club-A Minecraft & Gaming Club will begin on Thursdays beginning October 11th through December 20th.  Students will need to bring in their own laptops and gaming consoles.  Our initial meeting will be Thursday, October 11th where we will make agreements balancing school values with the desire to virtually build, design, and compete. (3:15-4:15, 8 South) Sponsors Jason Stegall & Shannon Hardy

ALLIES CLUB: Allies Club meets Thursdays 3:15-4pm in the Art room. Everyone is welcome to come to join the conversation at Allies club. This is a student-run club where students discuss issues they care about surrounding social justice, inclusion, and equity on all fronts.

Attendance & Tardy- Please review the Exploris Attendance Policy. Middle school teachers submit attendance based on who is in their seat at 8:15. If students are not in class by 8:15, they must sign in on the computer by the main office. Failure to sign in could result in inadvertently being marked absent for the entire day.

Exploris Grade 6 Weekly Letter

Please read the entire weekly letter! There is information regarding parent orientation, emergency weather updates, and our overnight field experience.

PARENT ORIENTATION: We look forward to seeing you at Parent Orientation on Thursday evening! Teachers will be sharing information pertinent to their grade-level. Since this is not a drop-in event, we have staggered times to accommodate families with multiple children. The presentations will be at the following times: 6th Grade (5:30-6:10), 7th Grade (6:10-6:50), 8th Grade (6:50-7:30). There will be a representative from Outward Bound on campus starting at 6:30. If you have apprehensions or questions about this required capstone trip please stop by to talk with Lindsay.

EMERGENCY WEATHER UPDATES: In the event of a potentially hazardous weather event or emergency situation, The Exploris School will follow the decision of the Wake County Public School System to ensure the safety of all students and staff that travel to our schools.  Wake County will monitor the National Weather Service, local weather forecasts, and road conditions with area law enforcement.  Please keep in mind that there may be events that cause Exploris to modify the school schedule that would not affect all of Wake County.

Additionally, The Exploris School has partnered with One Call Now to provide an emergency communication channel to all family members.  The One Call Now system is used to send important voice, text, and email messages to parents in case of school closures or other emergency alerts.

We have set up all parent/guardian phone and email information provided to the school into the One Call System so that we can reach you in the event of a weather event or emergency situation.  It is important to make sure you update the school if you should change your phone or email address. If you would like to add additional emergency contacts you can update your information directly in the One Call Now system using the link below.  Once you sign-up for an account and match the email address, you can update the contact numbers, emails, and contact options for your family.  There is also a My One Call App that you can install on your mobile devices to review all previous messages and make changes to your account.

Update One Call Now Emergency Contact Information

Weekly Planner Reminder

reminder4

Dear Parents,

This is just a reminder that you should be checking in and signing your child’s weekly planner each week. Each student is given a new weekly planner at the beginning of the week. Some homework assignments are already filled in but students are expected to write down new homework assignments as they are assigned. There is a place for parent signatures on the weekly planner (on the back) and we ask that parents sign the planner each week. We collect the signed weekly planners on Monday mornings. Please contact your Crew teacher if you have any questions. Thanks for your support!
