Dear Gale Ranch Middle School Families,                                                                   

As many of you are aware, the district is in the process of implementing Personalized Learning Options (PLO) that focus on flexibility and options for middle and high school students.  Many of the ideas will be put into effect for the 2018-2019 school year.  While the majority of them will impact high school students, a few of them will affect middle school students and families.  Below are descriptions of the PLOs that could possibly impact your child next year:

 

Six-Class Option (Instead of Typical Seven-Classes):

WHAT: Students have the option of taking only six classes by NOT taking one of their elective periods (only take 6 periods of classes and a lunch period). Students will have the choice of selecting a time preference of Periods 1-7 or Periods 2-8.  *Depending on course options and budget/staff availability, we will attempt to honor your time preference; however, we cannot guarantee you will get your first choice. 

HOW:  You will receive information on how to choose this option during Course Selection in March 2018.

Please note:  If you choose this option, students must arrive/leave campus when their school day begins/ends.  There will be no supervision before/after school for students not enrolled in an elective, and they must leave campus. 

  

Independent Study Physical Education (ISPE):

WHAT: Students qualifying for ISPE are exceptionally gifted athletes who are competing at the regional, state, or national competition level within the school year in an individual sport.  The physical activity MUST be an individual sport (team sports are not permitted).  Students in 7th grade will still be responsible for completing their Fitnessgram Tests. Parent/Guardian is not eligible to serve as instructor/coach. In addition, instructor/coach must carry proper liability insurance for the activity in which they are giving instruction.

HOW: Applications will be available on the GRMS and SRVUSD websites under "Personalized Learning" by Monday, April 16 and will be due to Ms. Eberly, Assistant Principal. 

Please note:  If you choose this option, students must arrive/leave campus when their school day begins/ends.  There will be no supervision before/after school for students not enrolled in a PE class.

 

World Language through Heritage Language Schools:

WHAT: Students taking a language at an SRVUSD-approved Heritage Language School (current offerings include SiliconAndhra ManaBadi Telugu School, Chinese American Cooperation Council (CACC) School, and International Tamil Academy) will be able to use the classes for advancement purposes once they promote from eighth grade.  Students will not receive credit toward high school graduation for any courses taken prior to promoting from eighth grade.  If the Heritage School language is offered at the student’s home school, Heritage credit will not be awarded on the high school transcript.  

HOW: Parents are responsible for enrolling their child into the SRVUSD-approved Heritage School of their choice.  

 

We believe that the implementation of these Personalized Learning Options will truly help to reduce student stress, and increase student flexibility and choice with their program of study.  Please visit the district’s website at www.srvusd.net for additional information.

 

Sincerely,

Sue Goldman, Principal

Principal's Message

May, 2018

 

It is hard to believe that I'm writing the last newsletter for the 17/18 school year, but here we are in the month of May--and it is chock full of activities. Before I list all that is upcoming in the calendar, let me pass along a few reminders that will help keep us all safe and sane.
 
Please be cognizant of the stress your child might be feeling as the end of the year comes to a close. Homework, essays and end-of-the-year projects can be overwhelming for kids and it is important to talk them through the importance of time-management. Please don't hesitate to reach out to our counselors if you need help or guidance, or to your child's teachers.
 
Please remind your child to head home right after school, unless they are involved with a club or other school function. Our staff only supervise until 3:00pm and it becomes a safety issue when so many students are on campus after that time.
 
As always, please drive slowly through our parking lot. I would much rather a student be tardy to class, than someone getting hurt.
 
Upcoming events:
 
OPEN HOUSE: Thursday, May 10th from 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Open House is an opportunity for your child(ren) to take you around to all classes and proudly show off their work. It is a non-structured 90 minutes for families to enjoy the learning that took place during the past school year.
 
PTSA Association Meeting: Tuesday, May 22nd @ 7:00pm
 
Spring Dance for 6th and 7th graders: Friday, May 11th from 7:00pm - 9:00pm
 
Spring Concerts: Wednesday/Thursday, May 23rd and May 24th at 7:00pm
 
Last day of school: Friday, June 1st (minimum day schedule, dismissal @ 11:49am)
 
Warmly,
Sue
