Single Subject Acceleration: Nomination and Testing Windows

Parent Information Session- Flyer (http://goo.gl/ZBWM0Y)

Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) is the practice of assigning a student to a higher-grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities.  SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of the content of a course without having taken the course.  For example, a parent could nominate his/her child to skip a grade level of content in either Language Arts OR Mathematics.

What is the process for Single Subject Acceleration?

Parents can get a nomination form from their school or through the online site listed below.  Once nominated, you will be contacted by your school to talk further about the assessment process and the program's logistics.

Live Bus Updates from WCPSS

Here's how it works: When we know that a bus is running late, using a substitute driver or experiencing any incident that would result in a change in service, we'll report it here. We can only report information that we know. (http://www.wcpss.net/Page/1898) As a school, we make every effort to notify parents of late buses via our email notification system. If you are not already signed up for email updates, consider signing up for them here. (http://tinyurl.com/krjafcv)

Birthday Wishes- All In Good Health:

We all love celebrating kids' birthdays - there's no doubt about that. But a school birthday celebration doesn't need to involve cupcakes or other unhealthy foods.

 

Many families have multiple birthday parties as they celebrate on their own on the actual birthday, with extended family and with their children's friends. Additionally, many students in any given class have birthdays in the same week and sometimes on the same day! That's a lot of cake, cupcakes and ice cream. Plus, many children have food allergies and other health conditions that can cause them to feel left out of such celebrations.

So perhaps the school birthday celebration, if there is to be one at all, should focus on the birthday girl or boy, rather than food. Here are a few fun ideas to celebrate birthdays in the classroom:

 

  1. Join the Celebration Book Club! This program allows families to donate a book to our school's library in celebration of their children's birthdays.
  2. Donate items to add to your child's classroom recess bag. Supplies for indoor or outdoor recess would be appreciated by your child's classmates.
  3. Contact your child's teacher to learn about other acceptable ways to celebrate in her classroom.
