Dear Parent or Guardian:

As you have noticed, each week our counseling team is using GoogleForms to check in with students. We monitor all of the responses in order to consider ongoing adjustments and support students’ needs. 

This week, we will be augmenting our own check in process using the Panorama platform. You may remember the platform from the strategic planning survey completed last year. 

Our 3rd – 8th grade students will take the survey in the coming days, again mid-year, and at the end of the year to help us dive a bit deeper into data and provide interventions for students. Please note this survey is not for grades K-2 and they will continue to have the weekly check in from our team without any changes. We are putting the final touches on the sign-in process and anticipate that the students will have access to the survey beginning September 2. We will use our regular SEL days for most grade levels in order to complete the survey window by September 14. 

You have full access to the survey as it will be available to your student to complete at home. Students have the option to take this survey, just like the weekly check-in tool. We hope that you will encourage and support your child in the survey experience. 

These results will be very valuable to our school and our district in measuring the work we do to support programs and strategies that help students feel supported, connected, and respected. 

The survey will include:

  • Student Supports/Environment and Learning at Home
  • Back to School Schoolwork and Relationships/Connection to School
  • Student Wellness Perseverance and Empathy

Our middle school survey will also include six questions about student perspective about the climate in the classroom about race to support the District Action Plans as adopted by the Board in August.

Despite lots of changes to our school events this year, we still need parent involvement and have some open positions remaining. Please take a look and see if any of these roles interest you and let me know so I can provide further information:

Science Fair Co-Chair (will be virtual & easier to coordinate)
Yearbook Co-Chair

Additionally, we are looking for an amazing person to fill the 'President Elect' position on the H&SC Board as soon as possible!
