Current Benchmark Completion Rates
All students should check to make sure they have done ALL assignments in each lesson. They can do this by clicking on the "OVERDUE" section of the progress area on the top, front page of Language Arts. Once that is clicked, it will give students a listing of all folders and the assignments that are included. If you click on Unit 1 and Unit 2, there will be a green checkmark next to the items that are complete. If there is no checkmark, it means the student skipped that assignment. Students should make sure that ALL assignments in a unit have a green checkmark before moving on to the next unit. You can also see completion rates on the weekly progress reports that are emailed home. Remember that students should be continuing to work on their lessons from home. They should pick up where they left off at school. The website URL is http://peak.getfueled.com.
Students and parents can find completion information in the weekly information that is emailed from PEAK as well as on the home page of the student's class (look at the progress bar). Remember that students should be continuing to work on their lessons from home. Students should make sure that all assignments have a green check mark before moving to the next assignment.
Remember that the meal applications on file from last year only carry over for the first month of school. This gives time for you to submit your application and get it approved.
Those families who do not turn in an application for the 17-18 school year will be removed from the meal program. Parents are responsible for any fees incurred for lunches after the approval expires, so be sure and turn in your application as soon as possible!
P.E. at Westside Academy
Students are responsible for completing 400 minutes of physical activity every two weeks. This includes students who are on home study. This averages out to 40 minutes per school day. Students are responsible for filling out and returning their P.E. verification log every two weeks. These logs are available in class, or students can download the form by CLICKING HERE. Each log is worth 10 points and counts towards the PE grade.
Our students will be taking the state tests May 7-11. It is very important that your child be in attendance EVERY DAY during this week in May.
Westside Academy is Open for new Students
