June Updates 06.01.2020

Students and Families,

I hope that June finds you doing well. With June comes the approaching of summer, and with that there are some things that we need to communicate about. Please look below to find a number of important items:

Dropping off/Picking Materials at Sheldon Materials:

If seniors were not able to pick up your cap and gown or other items during Senior Distribution Day (which happened on April 20), they will be available during meal time, from 11:00-12:00 every day that we have school (there will be a furlough day this Friday June 5th, and so it will not be available then). We will have a staff person dedicated to handing out Senior “stuff”.

On June 9 and 10 Sheldon will have a day set aside for students in 9-11 grades to turn in textbook and technology. Please look for additional information that we will send details out to families in the coming days.

 Virtual Graduation:  

This year’s Sheldon Graduation will be done virtually. The graduation will be available for viewing starting at 6:30 on June 11.  The graduation will remain up for 6 months after it is made available. Seniors, please keep an eye on your 4J email account as you will be receiving information about Virtual Graduation that you will need to fill out so that your graduation go as smoothly as possible.

 Final Grade for Trimester III:

As we head through the final weeks of spring term, I wanted to provide reminders about grading in schools in Oregon this spring. Classes in spring term will include only grades of Pass or Incomplete for students in grades 9-12 rather than letter grades A-F.

Pass (P) is given for students who are currently earning a 60% or higher in the course.

Incomplete (I) is given for students who are currently earning less than 60% of available points.

We are almost at the end of the year, and so I encourage students to work hard to make sure that they are currently working to pass all of their classes. Parents can check into the Google Classrooms or reach out to teachers if they have any questions. If students have an incomplete at the end of the school year, they will need to continue to work on passing the course during the summer or in the coming school year. I would rather see students finish strong here at the end of the year rather than be burdened with extra work in the months to come.

 

Thank you,
