NEW for the 2017-2018 School Year-Trimesters along with a New STEM Lab
Every new school year is exciting. Ottawa Elementary Schools is pleased to announce some exciting changes for the 2017-2018 school year.
This year the district has moved to a trimester grading period.
Grading Periods for 2017-2018
1st Trimester August 23-November 10
2nd Trimester November 13-February 23
3rd Trimester February 26-May 25
Trimesters will allow teachers to better measure student growth. Teachers and parents can identify, address and correct areas of concern during the grading period.The trimesters allow more time for students to learn and demonstrate proficiency. Teachers have more flexibility to pace instruction and ensure student mastery.
A new STEM Lab was installed at Shepherd Middle School. To learn more about the Stem Lab and Expeditions, please visit Mrs. Anderson's webpage which features a list of the Expeditions and links to learn about each one.
