SNOW/REMOTE Day Tuesday February 28th 2023

Attention GD Families:
Due to the inclement weather, Gardner-Dickinson will have a SNOW/REMOTE day today, Tuesday, February 28th.
The building will be closed and all instruction will occur remotely. Please have your student(s) log into their google classroom or seesaw account and refer to this page on our website for Google Meet links and the Remote Learning Schedules.
Thank you!

Note Regarding Potential Remote Learning Day Tomorrow

Attention GD Families:
 
With the anticipated inclement weather tomorrow, please review the following items:
 
As per Dr. Yodis’ snow day letter sent last month, all allocated snow days for this year have been used and in the event of another snow day being needed, we will provide remote instruction to our students in order to meet NYSED’s 180-day requirement.
 
If a snow/remote day is declared tomorrow morning, all instruction will occur remotely. Students are being reminded daily to bring their Chromebooks home in the event that they’re needed. Please have students check their google classroom or seesaw accounts for information from their teachers for remote materials and instructions (if a student needs assistance logging into google classroom or seesaw, please email their teacher for access).

Second Quarter Honor Roll

Wynantskill UFSD is pleased to announce the Honor Roll for the Second Marking Period!

In middle school, students in grades six, seven, and eight are eligible to earn placement on our Honor Roll or High Honor Roll list for exemplary academic achievement.

 

Students who have achieved a quarterly Grade Point Average (GPA) of 94.50 or higher qualify for High Honor Roll and those who have achieved a GPA of 89.50 or higher qualify for Honor Roll. When calculating quarterly averages, classes that meet daily weigh a 1.0 percent of the numeric grade, while courses that meet on alternating days weigh a .5 percent.

 

When we publish the Honor/High Honor Roll, we will publish student names by grade level and alphabetical order.

 

At the end of the third quarter in eighth grade, we will calculate each student’s class ranking. This rank is based on courses taken during eighth grade only. The top two students for the 2022- 2023 school year will be recognized as the Valedictorian and the Salutatorian.

Please join us in congratulating the following students:

Final chance to buy a 2022-23 yearbook!

Dear GD Families:
February 28th is the LAST DAY to order Yearbooks.  Ordering by the end of February is the ONLY way to guarantee that your child will get a yearbook – there are no longer a bunch of extras for sale at the end of the year.
Did you know that our GD yearbook has a 2-page spread for ALL of our classes (pre-K through 8th grade)?  Plus, great candid shots of students of all ages!
If you have great pictures of your child at a GD event, PLEASE submit photos (click link) for us to consider for the yearbook.
If you have any questions, email Mr. Mesh:
