The school year runs for 36 weeks, each week is to be completed by Saturday at 11:59 p.m. and you will be assigned work weekly.
Students will be responsible for ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies weekly, and will be loaded into one special (PE, Health,Art, and Music) each nine weeks.
• 1st nine weeks- weeks 1-9
• 2nd nine weeks- weeks 10-18
• 3rd nine weeks- weeks 19-27
• 4th nine weeks- weeks 28-36
4th graders this is a big year for you, as you will have multiple teachers, and you will be using Schoology to turn in all assignments, communicate with your
teachers, check grades, and use multiple resources.You need to make sure that you can maneuver around Schoology because you will not only be going in to
Compass anymore; you will only be going to the programs and resources that your teacher in Schoology tells you too.
8th graders you have the potential to earn one credit towards the 20 required for high school graduation.You will take HS Physical Education and Health.
If the work is not completed by Saturday at 11:59 p.m., you will get a message in the course management system letting you know that your child needs to
attend the mandated tutoring that week. Students will then enter into their Google Drive account and sign themselves up for a specific tutoring time.
Students will meet weekly with their teacher to discuss concerns, questions, group work, mini-lessons, and parent-teacher conferences (once a year, or per
teacher or parent request).
Parents need to be very active in their child’s education, so they are successful at these critical ages. They will need much support to understand the
curriculum, and help with their technological skills. Remember that they have to do the work, and you are there as a support.
Please make sure you are in constant communication with your children's teachers and ACE office staff, as we want to make this experience the best they’ve
