Welcome back to school!

 

The school year is beginning soon!  Students’ first day is Monday, August 28th.  Our staff will work hard every day for your student so you have the confidence that Moffat County Schools are the BEST choice for your student’s education.  I encourage students to access one or more of the great activities available to them.  The research is clear that students who are involved in activities are more successful in school.  

 

One of the focus area goals in our MCSD Strategic Plan is to use a variety of methods to communicate regularly and effectively with parents and district stakeholders.  Teachers and principals will use many different ways to get the word out to you.  You will see printed newsletters, websites, emails, and even text messages to ensure you have all the information you need about your student’s school.  Our student information system, Infinite Campus, will have a new way to get information about your student called “Messenger.”  With Messenger, you will be able to indicate preferences for how you receive information. 

 

For our parents of middle school and high school students, online access to your students’ information through the Parent Portal will continue to be available.  New this year, Parent Portal will be available for parents of elementary school students.  Parents of elementary students will now be able to monitor their students’ attendance as well as their lunch accounts.  The paperwork for signing up for Parent Portal will be sent home with your student in September.  Make sure your contact information is up to date so you don’t miss out on any items throughout the year.  

 

As for me, besides this monthly article, I will alert parents via text message and email when I update the Superintendent’s Message.  The text message will include a link to the district’s website at moffatsd.org

 

Another focus area goal in our strategic plan centers around iPads for our students.  The use of mobile devices in support of student learning can be very powerful. By providing increased access to tablets and other technology resources, teachers and students have opportunities to participate in rich opportunities for learning that can expand beyond the classroom walls.  This year, our 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students will be issued iPads.  High school students who access Advanced Placement classes will be issued an iPad as well. 

 

We are excited to partner with families as we show how the learning can be extended to the home and can include the entire family. A portion of back to school night at Craig Middle School on Thursday, August 24th beginning at 5:00 pm for 5th and 6th grade families and 6:30 pm for 7th and 8th grade families, will include a presentation from Jon Bergmann, recently named one of Tech & Learning’s 10 Most Influential People of the Year.  Originally from Colorado, Jon has been in education for over 25 years.  Jon empowers teachers, educators and families to engage deeply in the learning process. I encourage parents of 5th-8th grade to attend the presentation.     

 

Connection days at the elementary schools will continue this year.  The goal of connection days is to build positive relationships with parents and students.  This helps the transition into elementary as well as moving to a new grade level.  Elementary principals will send specific details to parents in their Back to School Welcome communications.

 

Registration is open at all schools.  As a reminder, helpful documents to bring with you to the school: birth certificate(s), immunization records, proof of residence and relevant custodial documents.  Pay particular attention to the registration forms as they have changed this year.

If you have a question about which elementary school your child attends, call our office at 970-824-3268

 

I wish everyone a great 2017-18 school year!

SchoolBlocks offers a unique and powerful personalized search system. A member of the public, searching for "homework" might see an announcement from the school as the first result. However, if the user is logged in, they would see their teacher’s latest homework assignment as the top result.
