    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS -

    1. Starting Friday, December 4th, students that have completed all of their weekly Launch activities (i.e. Reading Plus) prior to Friday will not need to login to Launch on that particular Friday unless otherwise determined by the teacher. Of course, students should still attend office hours as needed/directed. This is a wonderful acknowledgement/incentive for those students that have completed all of their Launch activities ahead of schedule.

    2. Please make sure to communicate any changes in schooling decisions (in-person vs. virtual) as they occur.

    If a student is absent in-person due to sickness, but will be returning, no statement needs to be communicated. However, if a student is making a steady change returning in-person/returning virtual, please communicate that change with your student’s LAUNCH teacher.

    Please note: In order to keep seating charts and contact tracing as accurate as possible, we cannot have students coming in and out on a day-to-day basis. When a decision is made, the decision will be logged on ASPEN until a parent declares a change.

     

    ANUNCIOS IMPORTANTES

    Por favor comunique cualquier cambio en la decisión escolar (personal vs. virtual) cuando pasa.

    Si el estudiante falta a la escuela en persona por enfermedad, per van a regresar, no se tiene que mandar nada a la escuela. PERO, si están haciendo un cambio de largo plazo, por favor comunique con el maestro de LAUNCH del estudiante.

    Por favor note: En orden de hacer los arreglos de asientos y seguir el trace del contacto cercano, no podemos tener los estudiantes cambiando de día-a-día. Cuando se hace una decisión, la decisión se quedará en ASPEN hasta que el padre declara un cambio.

     

    AVISO IMPORTANTE: Empezando el viernes, los estudiantes que hayan completado todas sus actividades semanales de lanzamiento (es decir, Reading Plus) antes del viernes no necesitarán iniciar sesión en el lanzamiento ese viernes en particular, a menos que el maestro determine lo contrario. Por supuesto, los estudiantes aún deben asistir a las horas de oficina según sea necesario/dirigido. Este es un maravilloso reconocimiento/incentivo para aquellos estudiantes que hayan completado todas sus actividades de Lanzamiento antes de lo previsto.

    MYP: Did you know?
    IB INQUIRY ACTION CYCLE

    The International Baccalaureate (IB) requires that the parent community of IB World Schools have access to a copy of the General Regulations for their school’s IB programme.  This document can be found on our MMS school website on the International Baccalaureate page.

    In thinking about the key points from this document, did you know …

    • all Marietta City Schools students in grades 6-10 are IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) students?
    • at Marietta Middle School, we are considered year 2 and year 3 of the 5 year programme?
    • MYP schools must comply with the articles in this document as it applies to MYP years 2 & 3 as well as a document called the Rules for IB World Schools: Middle Years Programme?
    • these documents serve as guidance to schools and information to students and legal guardians?
    • the assessment services offered by the IB are optional and only pertain to MYP year 5 students in schools that use the services?
    • the mention of MYP Certificate, term “candidate”, e-assessments, and MYP Course Results in this document also only pertain to opt-in Year 5 schools?
    • MMS offers all eight subject groups for a minimum of 50 hours/year and use the MYP objectives and assessment criteria as required?

    For more information on the IB or MYP, go to ibo.org or contact me, Jill Sims, MMS IB coordinator, at jsims@marietta-city.org
