Writing/ELAC Parent Night Tonight

Good morning Sunrise parents!

You are cordially invited to attend the Writing for Elementary Grade Students / English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) Parent Night which will be held on Thursday, April 9, 2015 in the multi-purpose room from 6pm – 7:30 pm. Parents will discover how students use Common Core State Standards (CCSS) to…

  • Write opinion pieces on topics or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons and information
  • Produce clear and coherent writing
  • Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research
  • ELAC parents will make decisions on proposed programs for students who are designated as English learners.

At the conclusion of the event, parents will receive a 3 Star Pass for their child(ren) to use at lunch time. The pass entitles students to have preferential dining seating and early dismissal to lunch recess. In addition, each student whose family attends will receive one homework pass for an assignment upon which the student and teacher both agree.

We look forward to seeing you here at 6pm tonight (Thursday, April 9, 2015).
