  • 2nd grade students are required to take the SAT
    test in April. They will be learning all of the
    skills needed in order to do well on the test.
    It will include Reading and Math. As we get
    closer to that time you will receive more
    information about the test.

  • This year your child will also receive grades
    from their respective P.E., Art, Music, and
    Spanish teachers, which will count toward honor

Progress Report/Report Cards
  • There are 4 grading periods. In the middle of
    each grading period, an Interim Progress Report
    will be sent home indicating how your child is
    progressing in each subject area. Your childs
    work portfolio will also go home for you to
    review with your child. Interim Progress Reports
    along with portfolios must be signed and returned
    to school the following school day. You also
    have the option of going paperless on the school
    website parent portal.
  • Interim Progress Reports indicate how your child
    is doing at that specific time it is not the
    actual grade.

    e-mail or send me a note in order to schedule
    conferences where we can take the time to sit
    down and discuss your childs performance in

Parent Involvement/Volunteers
  • In order to go on fieldtrips, you must be cleared
    in the system and have a volunteer ID number.
  • Even if you do not plan to volunteer in the
    school regularly but would like to go on a
    special field trip you must be approved or you
    will not be able to attend. This is a Miami-Dade
    County School Policy.
  • This year you may register as a volunteer on
    line. You may visit the www.dadeschools.net
  • and fill out your form.

Accreditation Process
  • Miami Dade County Public Schools is applying for
    District-wide Accreditation using the Advanced Ed
    protocol. All stakeholders parents, staff,
    students and community members will be involved
    in the process through online surveys and small
    group meetings. The goal of the process is to
    ensure that everyone and everything is focused on
    student achievement.
  • Through internal and external reviews NSE SIB K8
    will demonstrate that it implements a continuous
    improvement process.

Thanks for coming
  • Thank you all for coming and I am looking forward
    to working with you and your child. With your
    help and support, I am sure that this will be a
    very productive year for your child.
