    Dear Families,
     
    This week we have the 6th Grade Parent Meeting on Friday morning with Dr. Gold, Dr. Kover & Mr. Lynch
    at  8:30-10:00am in the Del Mar Library.  Don't miss this opportunity to discuss the typical development of our sixth graders.  What's normal at this age? What are other parents seeing?  What are the major challenges and concerns as your child starts middle school?  Come meet with the Del Mar team and discuss with other parents your questions and concerns.
     
    Due to the fires our Santa Rosa based photographer was not able to make it for make-ups yesterday.  They will re-schedule as soon as possible.

    You should have received an email with Log in information to our new Student Information System, ALMA. If you do not see the email in your inbox, please check your junk mail folder. If you cannot locate the email, please contact help@reedschools.org. For information on how to navigate ALMA from the student/parent portal: https://vimeo.com/228813959/dc80a457c2. Please note, we will be uploading previous student transcript information in the coming weeks.
     
    We encourage you to speak with your child about what she or he is learning, keeping the focus on positive and scholarly work habits and the learning itself-the questions and ideas raised in class.  The online grades provide feedback about whether students are: a) completing assignments on time (are they being motivated/responsible learners committed to excellence) and b) meeting standards (are they demonstrating ability to solve problems, think critically, and communicate in effective ways). We advise parents to always check progress with their student(s) and strongly recommend checking progress no more than once a week.
     
    Teacher websites provide information on assignments and other class information. Encourage your child to speak with adults at school if she/he has questions, ideas, or needs support.  Please forward any questions or concerns you may still have to the teacher or staff member most directly involved. I look forward to continuing our work together this year in support of your child in having a positive and productive experience at school.
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Brian Lynch
    Principal
