  • Where should I drop-off and pick-up my student in the mornings and afternoons?
  • Who should I contact about _________?
    You are encouraged to follow the Communication Pathways for any questions or concerns you may have.  Team Lead and other Communication Pathway contacts can be found in this directory.
  • How are students placed in Literacy and Math classes?
    As in First Grade, Second Graders are placed in Math and Literacy classrooms based on their learning needs.  We use a body of evidence including beginning and end of year assessment results, MAPs testing scores, and teacher recommendations to aid in placements.  This type of grouping allows each teacher to be able to individualize more easily due to the fact that classes are more homogeneous. There may be substantial overlap in the curriculum and activities between classrooms, as we all strive to meet similar standards in several areas.  Groupings cannot be strictly ranked from highest to lowest. We take care to place students in Literacy and Math groups where we believe they will be challenged and successful. Maximum growth, engagement, and well being is our general goal in each group, while each classroom teacher has specific goals tailored to the learning needs of her particular set of students.  In the beginning, placements are flexible as students are being continuously assessed. We will suggest changes, as well feel appropriate, during the first few weeks. The 2nd Grade team spends a substantial amount of time planning together and coordinating our teaching efforts to enhance the education of all the students we share.

  • At the end of the school day, students will be dismissed at their homeroom teacher’s designated spot outside the front of the building. Please find your child's homeroom teacher after school and ensure the teacher releases the student before leaving the area.

2017-2018 Information
  • Curriculum/Team Policies: Please see our team documents for specific information for this school year.
  • Grades: You may check your child's grades at any time on Infinite Campus. If you don't know your access information please contact info@stargateschool.org.
  • Planners: Students are expected to bring home their 3-ring binder/planner EVERY DAY! If they do not have a stamp marked on that day it means they did not turn in their homework or were not prepared for class that day. If there is no homework due that day they will get a stamp for coming to class prepared.
  • Late Work Policy: If your child is missing work and it is older than 2 weeks old, they cannot receive an extra copy from the teacher. However, if the assignment is found they can turn it in as long as it is within the same trimester. Your child can check his/her cubby, desk, and the no name folder for missing work. If work it is found it needs to be turned into the appropriate teacher to receive credit.
