    update Parent/Teacher Conferences Fall 2020-2021

    10/27/20 and 11/11/20 from 3:30pm-6:30pm 

    Conferences are for parents/guardians to meet teachers, promote dialogue, and share your student’s academic progress. A plan for improvement made collaboratively can be a powerful tool for student success. In order to make your conference time efficient and effective, we recommend you complete a pre-conference review (sit down) with your child to go over the information on PowerSchool and on Schoology.

    Recap of Clague Virtual Curriculum Night 

    On Thursday, October 1, 2020, we kicked off our Virtual Curriculum Night with a few words from Mr. Carter and PTSO President, Sandy Rao. There was also an opportunity to participate in an abbreviated "virtual school day" by following your student's schedule using Zoom. By the end of the the virtual curriculum night, visitors should have been able to:

    • Experience your child’s daily routine 
    • Meet the Clague team 
    • Understand each teacher’s background and teaching philosophy
    • Understand homework and grading policy/syllabus for students
    • Receive recommendations for supporting students at home
    • Master how to contact each teacher and what to do if there is an issue

    Click here to recap what was discussed during Principal Carter's words of welcome. 

    Please feel free to email teachers directly to get any missed information if you were not able to attend.

    To achieve Schools to Watch designation, a middle school must demonstrate that it has met the following criteria:

    1. It is academically excellent and challenges all students.

    2. It is developmentally responsive and sensitive to the unique developmental challenges of early adolescents.

    3. The school is socially equitable, democratic and fair, providing all students with high-quality teachers, resources and supports.

    4. The school has norms, structures and organizational arrangements to support and sustain its path toward excellence.

     "Clague Middle School is a wonderful place for middle grade youth to grow, learn, and explore. Students are happy and behave as learners. The climate of caring is obvious from the moment the students enter the building. Students are set-up for success with supports, prompts and encouragement. Classrooms had clear learning objectives. The building is spacious providing ample space for special needs. Minimal class time is spent dealing with discipline issues and everyone understands that there is a focus on learning." --Quote from Schools to Watch report
