August 2011 Archives

We hope all of our Stone Bridge community is enjoying the summer months. We are looking forward to September and seeing all of our students, teachers and parents again.

We thought it would be helpful for you to hear about some of our updates regarding some important summer topics in preparation for the upcoming school year.

·         Algebra Placement (8th grade) & Advanced Level Math Placement (5th-7th grade). We have just received our NJ ASK scores back from the State, which allow us to begin the placement process for Algebra and Advanced Level Math (5th - 7th Grade) classes. Algebra letters to 8th graders who have met the criteria to be placed in Algebra will be mailed out by the end of the week (no later than August 4th). Advanced Level Math placement letters will be mailed out in the next two weeks (by August 19th).

If you don't receive a letter and would like more information about our algebra placment criteria, please feel free to contact us via email (guterlm@ufrsd.net).

·         5th Grade Orientation. 5th Grade Orientation will take place on August 24th from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. All incoming 5th grade students are invited to attend this worthwhile introduction of our school building and the "ins and outs" of middle school.

 

5th grade parents are invited to attend a parent session at 6:00 p.m. on August 24th. This will also be informative regarding the life of a middle schooler.

 

·         Math Voyagers. Students who are struggling in math or in need of extra support will also be getting letters soon. Students who receive a letter have scored "partially proficient" on their NJ ASK Math section, and are entitled to basic skills support. If you don't get a letter and would like your son/daughter to get extra support, please email us (guterlm@ufrsd.net).

 

·         Walking Permission Slip. While we strongly discourage students from walking home from Stone Bridge Middle School, we do understand the need and desire to do so.  Therefore, we have developed a permission slip for all students who walk home from school. This form must be filled out in order to allow a student to walk. Please feel free to download the attachment (Walking permission slip.pdf) and send it in with your son/daughter when they come to school.

 

We hope you have a great August. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

Thanks,

Mr. G. and Miss Negro
