Dear Gale Ranch Middle School Families,                                                                   

As many of you are aware, the district is in the process of implementing Personalized Learning Options (PLO) that focus on flexibility and options for middle and high school students.  Many of the ideas will be put into effect for the 2018-2019 school year.  While the majority of them will impact high school students, a few of them will affect middle school students and families.  Below are descriptions of the PLOs that could possibly impact your child next year:

 

Six-Class Option (Instead of Typical Seven-Classes):

WHAT: Students have the option of taking only six classes by NOT taking one of their elective periods (only take 6 periods of classes and a lunch period). Students will have the choice of selecting a time preference of Periods 1-7 or Periods 2-8.  *Depending on course options and budget/staff availability, we will attempt to honor your time preference; however, we cannot guarantee you will get your first choice. 

HOW:  You will receive information on how to choose this option during Course Selection in March 2018.

Please note:  If you choose this option, students must arrive/leave campus when their school day begins/ends.  There will be no supervision before/after school for students not enrolled in an elective, and they must leave campus. 

  

Independent Study Physical Education (ISPE):

WHAT: Students qualifying for ISPE are exceptionally gifted athletes who are competing at the regional, state, or national competition level within the school year in an individual sport.  The physical activity MUST be an individual sport (team sports are not permitted).  Students in 7th grade will still be responsible for completing their Fitnessgram Tests. Parent/Guardian is not eligible to serve as instructor/coach. In addition, instructor/coach must carry proper liability insurance for the activity in which they are giving instruction.

HOW: Applications will be available on the GRMS and SRVUSD websites under "Personalized Learning" by Monday, April 16 and will be due to Ms. Eberly, Assistant Principal. 

Please note:  If you choose this option, students must arrive/leave campus when their school day begins/ends.  There will be no supervision before/after school for students not enrolled in a PE class.

 

World Language through Heritage Language Schools:

WHAT: Students taking a language at an SRVUSD-approved Heritage Language School (current offerings include SiliconAndhra ManaBadi Telugu School, Chinese American Cooperation Council (CACC) School, and International Tamil Academy) will be able to use the classes for advancement purposes once they promote from eighth grade.  Students will not receive credit toward high school graduation for any courses taken prior to promoting from eighth grade.  If the Heritage School language is offered at the student’s home school, Heritage credit will not be awarded on the high school transcript.  

HOW: Parents are responsible for enrolling their child into the SRVUSD-approved Heritage School of their choice.  

 

We believe that the implementation of these Personalized Learning Options will truly help to reduce student stress, and increase student flexibility and choice with their program of study.  Please visit the district’s website at www.srvusd.net for additional information.

 

Sincerely,

Sue Goldman, Principal

State law gives families the option to transfer to a different school when there is space available. When schools have space, families can choose to transfer to another school within a district (intradistrict transfers) or to transfer to a school in another district (interdistrict transfers).

 

SRVUSD has moved up its intradistrict open enrollment window for elementary families. The open enrollment window for elementary schools is now open and closes on April 6, 2018. Families can find the link to the online intradistrict transfer request form and information about SRVUSD’s open enrollment/intradistrict transfer process at www.srvusd.net/transfers.

 

SRVUSD students will continue to have placement priority in our schools. However, after we place our resident students at their school of choice, because we now have space available, California law requires that we allow students from outside the district to apply to attend our schools (interdistrict transfers). Interdistrict transfers will only be accepted if there is space available. Students from outside the district must maintain acceptable academic performance, attendance and behavior. SRVUSD anticipates openings for interdistrict transfers students at nearly all SRVUSD schools.

SRVUSD recognizes that some students want to challenge themselves academically beyond the classroom.  Course advancement is one opportunity available for our students.  Students may enroll in an approved math, science, or world language (Spanish, French, or Chinese) course of study outside of SRVUSD that may lead to course advancement.  We also recognize that advancement is not for all students.  Families must determine if their student(s) can manage the fast pace curriculum delivery. 

 

Update:  SRVUSD is making many changes regarding math advancement (different than the past).  Please see the district website below for the most accurate information and deadlines:

Thank you for participating in the GRMS Math Selection Test. If, based on the test scores, you (or your student) were selected for the GRMS Competitive Math Team or the GRMS Math Olympiad Team, you should have received an email indicating the selection.

 

We had a very large number of students who took the selection test but could accommodate only 35 students for the above competitive teams. However, we are happy to announce the introduction of a new math program in San Ramon (Dougherty Math Circle) that is open to all the students in San Ramon.

 

Dougherty Math Circle is a program where students work in groups and collaborate on mathematical ideas not commonly taught in school or in a different perspective than commonly taught. More information including how to register can be found at:https://doughertymc.wordpress.com

There are limited spots available but we will do our best to accommodate as many students as possible!

 

Your tests can be picked up from Mrs.Bergen’s room starting November 10th.

 

Thanks,

The AMC 8 is a 25 question, 40 minute multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem solving skills. This year, the AMC 8 will be given in the MPR at GRMS on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, 3:00-4:00 pm. We will let you know details as we get closer to the test date. This is not a required exam for any students. It is entirely optional and quite challenging.

 

The test is not free. We are asking each participant to return $6 (exact change in cash or a check made out to GRMS) along with the registration form. Turn in the form and money to your math teacher or Mrs. Bergen by Friday, September 29th, 2017.

 

To register, click on the attached file and print out.

 

The examination provides students an opportunity to apply the concepts taught at the middle school level to problems which not only range from easy to difficult but also cover a wide range of applications. Many problems are designed to challenge students and to offer problem solving experiences beyond those provided in most middle school math classrooms. Additionally, the AMC 8 can promote excitement, enthusiasm and positive attitudes toward mathematics.

 

More information about the AMC 8, released and practice questions, and the AMC 10 can be found at
