It was so good to be back at Moran after my extended leave. Knee replacement went well and I’m back in full stride. So great to see all the children again, I missed them. It’s always important to keep current so check the Moran or PHM web sites regularly. Below I’ve listed some additional information for you.

2017 ISTEP TESTS WILL AGAIN BE CHALLENGING: ISTEP will be rigorous in content and require students to persevere through lengthy problems, requiring multiple answers. This will not come easily or natural to students. At Moran we start preparing students for the new tests from the very first day of school. Parents can help support their child by insuring homework is completed, keeping in contact with their child’s teacher and encouraging them to do their personal best each and every day.
eLearning: When students miss school due to cancellation they will be assigned eLearning activities. Parents should have already received information from their child’s teacher regarding eLearing lessons. These assignments are considered homework and are expected to be completed. Incomplete assignments will be treated just like any other homework that is not turned in. If you have questions about eLearning you may contact your child’s teacher.
