Bell Times for 2014-15 School Year


 May 9, 2014 

 

Dear Graham Hill staff and families,

Seattle Public Schools has finalized bell times – our start and end times – for the 2014-15 school year.   Starting in the fall, our school will start at 8:40am and students will be dismissed at 2:50pm.  This is the same as our current school year.  For those students riding the bus, the arrival time at school will be 8:25am and the departure time after school will start at 3:00. Please note there is no supervision before or after the times listed.

The full list of bell times for all schools next year is posted online at: http://bit.ly/2014-15belltimes

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Please Spread the Word! - Kindergarten At Graham Hill
 

  

Hello Families and Community,

If you know a family with a kindergarten student for 2014-15, please help us spread the word about some important “starting strong” events…

 

1. Due to the building renovation, Graham Hill will not have the previously scheduled Jump Start in August for incoming students and their families.  In lieu of this, teachers will be scheduling Home Visits with all families individually mid-late August. 

2. Kindergarten Slow Start:  in an effort to welcome our incoming kindergarten students into a calm and settled school climate, and to allow “late entry” home visits/family connections to occur, Kindergarten will start on Monday, September 8.  Kindergarten students will NOT begin on Wednesday, September 3 with the other Blue Whale first through fifth graders.  First graders in the K/1 classrooms will begin on September 3.  The “Slow Start” has been approved by SPS and OSPI.

3. A “Family – School Connections” brunch will be scheduled for all kindergarten students and their families on Friday, September 5th at Graham Hill.  This will allow students to see their classrooms, have a school tour, practice outdoor and lunchroom routines and introduce themselves to other students and parents in a supportive, relaxed and social setting.  It will be a sweet introduction for the 8th!

 

More details to follow (through robocalls and US mail) to all incoming Kindergarteners…this is just an early FYI for planning.

I know this is an exciting time for families and kids…and for us here at Graham Hill, too!  Welcome Class of 2027!  (wow!)

Getting to Know the Mood Meter
Have your children come home talking about a Green day or maybe a Red moment they had at recess. Well Graham Hill has implemented the RULER, a curriculum to help build our students' social/emotional wellbeing. If you would like to become more familiar with the Mood Meter, a visual tool to help students track their social /emotional wellbeing throughout the day, click on the link below.

Parent Toolkit
The Measurement of Academic Progress (MAP) is one assessment that the district uses to assess the students of Seattle Public Schools. At Graham Hill this test is done in all grades twice a year. We have included a link to help you better understand the MAP
