HARVEST FEST - October 28th!
As part of Building a Bridge to the Future, we are connecting with our community this year by learning about career opportunities in the area.
We are thrilled to have representatives and/or donations from three area farms: Heimerls, Hendrons, and Lynd's Fruit Farm. Our students will learn about different types of farming, see farm equipment, and have a craft and game station. Look for photos on the website in a couple of weeks.
Remember to have your student wear "farm clothes" on Friday.
Our Halloween parties will take place at 2:30 on Friday, October 28th. This will be a fun way to end our Harvest Fest Day! Students may bring their costume and put them on over their clothes. Remember, we encourage students to dress like a farmer on Friday. Thanks to the PTO for supplying a snack. Lynd Fruit Farm has also donated apples for our students that day. The parties will be for students only, as we continue to work on limiting exposure to COVID and other viruses.
Picture Retake Day is Monday, October 24th. This date is for all students who were absent on September 19th or who wish to have their pictures retaken.

A Word About Report Cards
Johnstown Intermediate School's report card is a hybrid card, containing two grades.
1. Traditional Grades: As we build a bridge to the future, we wanted to better prepare parents and students for the marks they will receive at middle school and beyond. Each core subject will have a traditional letter grade.
2. Standards-Based Marks: As we have done in the past, we will continue to record the level of mastery of individual standards, or essential learnings, in each subject.
The marks are:
M: Mastery - Student performance meets the demands of the standard and/ or benchmark while demonstrating a firm grasp of concepts and procedures involved
AM: Approaching Mastery - Student understands relevant foundational concepts but requires support to meet the demands of the standard and/or benchmark
DV: Developing - Student is developing understanding of foundational concepts
L: Limited - Student has limited understanding of the foundational concepts, requiring consistent support
You'll notice report cards look very different this year. We hope you will appreciate more room for comments and the dual grades.
Thank you for your patience as we work through the implementation of this part of PowerSchool.
