A letter has been mailed home to welcome you to the PowerSchool Parent Portal!

Studies have shown that parental engagement in a child’s education is the single most important factor in student achievement.  As part of Stamford Public Schools continued effort to improve communication and engagement with our families, we are happy to let you know that we are launching our PowerSchool Parent Portal for all middle school and high school parents beginning on November 20, 2014. 

This portal will provide you with secure access to information about your middle school and/or high school children’s grades and attendance records through a single account.  You will need a computer with internet access to create your account.  If you do not have access to a computer, you may visit the public library nearest you. A detailed information sheet enclosed that you should keep for future reference.

 

¡Bienvenido(a) a PowerSchool Parent Portal (Portal de Padres de PowerSchool)! Los estudios han mostrado que la participación de los padres en la educación de un niño(a) es el factor más importante de todos en el éxito estudiantil. Como parte del continuo esfuerzo de las Escuelas Públicas de Stamford de mejorar la comunicación y la participación de nuestras familias, nos complace dejarles saber que estamos lanzando nuestro Portal de Padres de PowerSchool para todos los padres de las escuelas (inter)medias y las escuelas secundarias (escuelas superiores) a partir del 20 de noviembre de 2014. 

Este portal le proporcionará acceso seguro a información sobre las calificaciones y los récords de asistencia de su niño(a)(s) de escuela (inter)media y / o escuela secundaria (escuela superior) por medio de una sola cuenta.  Para crear su cuenta, va a necesitar una computadora con acceso al Internet.  Si no tiene acceso a una computadora, puede visitar la biblioteca pública que le quede más cercana.  Hay también, adjunta, una hoja informativa detallada que debe guardar para su uso como referencia en el futuro.

There are approximately 250 scholarships on Naviance that are available to Seniors who are planning to go to college. Each scholarship has different application criteria and is looking for different things in student applicants. Some scholarships are looking for students with strong academic achievement, some are for athletes, some are for students who are planning to major in a particular area of study or pursue a particular career path, and others are for students with strong community service or a special interest. The goal of the Westhill Scholarship Program is to notify and inform students about specific scholarships that they are eligible for, and to provide guidance through the application process. 

In order to become part of the program you must submit the application package. 

Interested applicants should email a resume to: Nick Sotire @ NSotire@soundwaters.org. Or call 203-406-3305

Please see the attached information if you are interested in competing in the UCONN's Martin Luther King 2015 Essay Contest. 

The deadline for submission is December 5, 2014

 

2015 Essay Theme:


Breaking the Silence
Using the example set by Dr. Martin Luther King, JR.’s legacy and enlightened leadership, students are asked in their essay to discuss what it means to “break the silence” of injustice. Specifically, how can they as young leaders work to end apathy and help to promote greater involvement and engagement amongst their peers to realize the Dream?

 

Who can enter:

 

Connecticut High School students in grades 9 – 12. Prizes will be awarded in two categories: grades 9-10 and 11-12. All students who submit an essay will receive a certificate of participation from the MLK Committee. We expect to award, per grade grouping, one prize for first place, second place, and third place.

 

The entry form and additional information is included on the download.

 

Regards and Good luck,

Mr. Hilser

Policy Reminders

Absences:
When your child returns to school please have them report to Mr. Pereira in the main office between 7 to 7:25 in the morning with their documentation (parent note).
 
Early Dismissal: 

If there is a need for your child to leave school early, please send in a note (including a morning telephone number to confirm dismissal) with your child. They will be issued a yellow dismissal pass from class and you can meet your child in the office. Students should report to the main office before the warning bell for Block 1 to get the dismissal approved. We are hoping to greatly decrease the classroom interruptions that occur when we do not follow this procedure.
