Dear Commander Community,
Thank you so much to those of you who attended virtual conferences and our Fall Choir Conference. Connecting with teachers and attending extracurricular events builds our school to home connection, which is critical to the success of our students.
If you were unable to attend conferences, please reach out to your student’s teachers by checking Schoology and connecting with them via phone or email addresses shown here. We are hoping to send out Progress Reports for Quarter 1 via email on Friday.
Students are able to revise and resubmit their assignments up until two weeks prior to the end of the semester. Please encourage your child to submit all of their work so they can receive feedback and earn the best possible grade in each class. Congratulations to those students who attended school on Wednesday, as all of these students had opportunities to either get on track with their competency graduation requirement, get on track with coursework, or meet with the Future Center.
Transportation Reminder and Update: DPS transportation provides RTD passes for transportation eligible students only, while the City of Denver’s On MY Way! program is providing passes through December and is open to all DPS students to apply. Please note that DPS Transportation does not manage the On MY Way! Passes. On MY Way! passes are accessible through the RTD app. Learn more about the program here. If you have any questions about On MY Way! passes, contact Mikhail Vafeades at email@example.com.
Reminder from last week: Parents, we need your help teaching our students to create healthy habits when using technology. Encourage your student to unplug from their cell phones and their Chromebooks at night; and, store their devices in an area away from where they sleep. Additionally, refrain from calling and texting your child during the school day. Our teachers are working hard to engage our students in relevant and rigorous learning experiences; and, it causes a significant disruption when students are on their phones and express that they must talk to their parent/guardian. If there is an emergency and you need to contact your child right away, call our main office and we will get you connected asap.
There is no school for students on Monday 10/18 for Teacher Professional Learning.
Have a Commander Kind of Week!
