Dear Families of Anne Sullivan 8th graders,                                                                       

We are writing this letter to inform

Sullivan Bee
you that in order to participate in the Anne Sullivan 8th grade promotion ceremony in June, your child must have passing grades in all of her/his classes for the 4th quarter - which starts today, April 9, 2018.  

 In just a few short months, your child will begin high school.  In high school, a student’s status is based on credits earned.  Credits are awarded based on meeting various course requirements and achieving passing grades.  Our Anne Sullivan teachers have conveyed this to your student throughout her/his education.  Through our partnership with Project Success, your student has learned more specifically about the high schools in MPS, what they have to offer, and the expectations of being a high school student.  Our Anne Sullivan teaching and leadership team feel that connecting participation in our Anne Sullivan promotion celebration to your student have passing grades in all her/his classes for the last quarter of this year is aligned with preparing your child for academic success next year.

 Please note, your child will NOT be able to make up work after assignments are due unless there has been an excused absence.  Your child must keep up and on track in real time, aligned with the expectations of her/his teachers.  There will be no “packets of missing work” to collect and turn in as we approach mid to late May.

 Some families may be wondering what you can do to support your child’s success.  A couple of simple

but powerful strategies that many of our students’ families already utilize include:

  • Log on to Parent Portal and check your child’s grades.  The teachers will update grades every two weeks throughout the quarter - you can expect updated grades April 23rd, May 14th, and May 28th.  There will be a link on the Sullivan website for how to access the parent portal.  
  • Ask your child “What are you learning about?” and “What are you learning how to do?”  Additionally, ask your child to show you her/his work.
  • Communicate with your child’s teachers. They are available by phone and email.  Unless there is an extenuating circumstance, they will respond to your communication within 24-48 hours during the week.
  • Come by school to check on your child and see what she/he is learning about first-hand.
  • Schedule a time to meet with your child’s teachers!

 This quarter will go faster than the others with testing and end-of-year activities.  If you have any questions or concerns about this information, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
