Invitation to Join PupilPath!
We are pleased to announce that our school is using the "Pupil Path" website to bring you immediate information regarding your child's education. Pupil Path allows you to view the following:
Your child's assignments and projects along with due dates.
Your child's performance in each class including homework, classwork, tests and projects.
Progress reports from teachers throughout the school year.
Handouts and assignments when your child is absent from school.
Your child's transcripts and graduation eligibility status (HS only).
School announcements, new calendar listings and upcoming events.
And, in some classrooms, your child's attendance.
We hope that by enabling you to see this information on a daily basis we will be able to work together to ensure that our children remain on track in every class. As we work together we will ensure that our students get the most out of their education.
For instructions on registering for Pupil Path click HERE.
On this page you will also find many helpful links and postings that will help you and your child have the best experience possible at Renaissance. We endeavor to keep you informed of everything that goes on in your child's academic career, so please make sure we have your current contact information: phone number, address and email address. You can update your information at any time by downloading the forms from the SCHOOL FORMS link above, or call the office and ask for our pupil personnel secretary.
We will post important documents, such as the parent calendar of events and the APIL (every August) with important information about school policies and procedures, Emergency Contact and other important forms, and PTA Membership Information.
The green links to the left will give you additional information about how to support your child emotionally, socially and academically and how to support Renaissance with advocacy, talents, money and time. We hope you and your child have the best year ever, and we look forward to seeing you often at school.
While "PupilPath" gives you most of the information you will need to keep up to date with your child's academics, some teachers still use the middle and high school Homework Wiki-spaces to post homework. In addition, many elementary teachers maintain their own web-pages for homework and curriculum information, so please ask your child's teacher how best to keep up with your child's homework.
