Parcc (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and
Careers) Performance-Based Assessment testing will start the first week
in March. We have been practicing the online tutorials that are offered
by the PARCC website.
http://parcc.pearson.com/ is the official site to read more about the test.
Thank you for your support in this effort.
On behalf of Mrs. Fadli, Principal of
Kenmoor Middle School, this announcement serves as notification to
parents/guardians of the implementation of an after-school detention program.
Detention may be offered as an
alternative to suspension for students who have been involved in repeated Level
1 and/or Level 2 disciplinary infractions. Detention Hall will be a serious,
academic environment in which the student will not be allowed to talk and must work on homework, classwork
or assignments that will be provided in detention hall. Any assignments that
are provided in detention will not
be graded or recorded.
Detention Hall will be held Monday
thru Thursday from 4:30pm to 5:30 pm.
accepting this alternative to suspension, parents/guardians must agree to
provide transportation or authorization for the school to release the student
to walk after detention.
