As Mr. Phelps explains in the attached live-action video presentation, Growth Week (04/27 - 05/01) presents every student with an opportunity to positively impact the decision that will soon be made regarding his or her retention (failing for the year) or promotion (passing for the year). Students are encouraged to do their best on all assigned growth measuring activities during this week and to "finish strong" by working hard through the end of the school year to insure that every Collegiate Academy student is promoted.
El jueves 2 de abril, Collegiate Academy mando boletas de calificaciones para el tercer período de la escuela a través de Skyward. Las boletas de calificaciones se encuentran en la pestaña "portfolio". Cuando se abre, la pestaña solicitará a los usuarios que firmen electrónicamente la boleta de calificaciones y esa firma se devolverá electrónicamente a nuestras oficinas. Tenga en cuenta que, durante este tiempo, las boletas de calificaciones no se imprimirán. Los padres sin acceso a Internet o teléfono podrán comunicarse con la Sra. Krueger, nuestra Coordinadora de Acceso a Campus Skyward, para obtener la boleta de calificaciones por correo electrónico o para solicitar que se envíe por correo una copia impresa a sus hogares. Se podrá comunicar con ella por medio de correo electrónico a email@example.com o al numero 409-761-6126.
On Thursday, April 2, Collegiate Academy issued report cards for the 3rd marking period via Skyward. The report cards are located under the “portfolio” tab.

Please be aware that during this time, report cards will not be printed. Parents without internet or mobile access may contact Ms. Krueger, our Campus Skyward Access Coordinator, to obtain the report card via email or to arrange for a printed copy to be mailed to their homes.

Para los estudiantes que necesitan tareas de papel / lápiz, hemos creado paquetes de acuerdo al grado de su estudiante. Los paquetes tienen las tareas y actividades que los estudiantes tienen que completar. A partir del 6 de abril, los paquetes de trabajo estarán disponibles todos los lunes de 10:00 a.m. a 2:00 p.m. También estaremos aceptando las tareas / actividades completadas durante ese tiempo. Con el fin de promover el distanciamiento social, para garantizar que las tareas en papel no contengan microbios, hemos diseñado un proceso simplificado en el que todos los productos se distribuirán desde la espaciosa cafetería. Se les permitirá ingresar un máximo de cinco invitados a la vez. Se esperará que los invitados se pongan guantes para su protección personal. Además, todos los documentos habrán permanecido intactos durante más de sesenta (60) horas para permitir la esterilización natural.
Tenga en cuenta que estas tareas de papel / lápiz NO son tareas adicionales, son un recurso para aquellas familias que pueden tener problemas tecnológicos.
¡La enseñanza y el aprendizaje continuara en Collegiate Academy!
High praise is extended to all of our students who have risen to the challenge of online distance learning and making connections with their teachers on a regular basis to receive assistance and direct instruction. Please continue to Set The P.A.C.E. for 21st century learning.
For students in need of paper/pencil assignments, we have created grade level packets with assignments and activities for students to complete. Beginning on April 6, the take-home packets will be available for retrieval each Monday from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. We will also be collecting completed assignments/activities during that time. In order to promote social distancing, as well as to ensure that the paper assignments are microbe-free, we have designed a streamlined process in which all products will be distributed from the spacious cafeteria with a maximum of five guests granted entry at one time. Guests are expected to don gloves for their personal protection. Furthermore, all documents will have been untouched for over sixty (60) hours to allow for natural sterilization.
Please note that these paper/pencil assignments are NOT additional assignments, they are a resource for those families that may have technology issues.
Because of our P.A.C.E. Setting Educators, Students, and Parents, teaching and learning continues at Collegiate Academy!
Parents: If you received an email regarding your students' grades, today, April 1st, please disregard.
We will contact you with report card information soon.
