Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
We are now at the start of the last trimester of the year. I hope all students will finish off 2014-15 strongly by putting forth their best effort every day.
I would like to remind all of our eighth graders that third trimester is especially important for them. Though every student will participate in the promotion ceremony, earning an ”F” on your 3rd trimester report card and/or displaying unacceptable behavior may limit your participation in some or all of the promotion activities. I hope all of our eighth graders will be able to enjoy the fun activities the promotion committee has planned for them and make wonderful memories as they cross stage with their classmates at the end of May.
It is important not to wait until the last few weeks of school to get serious about your academic and behavioral progress. This is the beginning of the new trimester. All students start out with a clean slate. Your choices and commitment to your studies will determine your academic success. Students who are currently struggling in their classes should make good use of their time during spring break to catch up on missing assignments, study and get ahead. Parents are encouraged to check their child’s progress on a regular basis in Parent Portal.
