Frost Middle Events

The Frost Middle School wants to learn more from your experience with our school.  This information will help our Team build on our successes and consider any changes that may help to better meet the needs of our families.  We continue to identify and implement strategies that work well within the school community, striving to be one of the top schools in the district.  Please take this survey once for each LPS student in your home.  

 

At the end of the questionnaire, you will be redirected to a separate webpage to enter an anonymous and random drawing to win a $200 Market Basket gift card.  The information you provide for the drawing will only be used for the sole purpose of the gift card drawing and will not be linked in any way to your questionnaire responses.  Your responses to the questionnaire will be kept completely anonymous.  Please view the QR code below or click on the survey link to participate.

 

Thank you for your help. Please do not hesitate to reach out to my office if you have any questions.  Thank you for your continued support of Frost Middle.  Go FALCONS!

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Every year, each public school and school district in Massachusetts receives a report card. Just as your child’s report card shows how they are doing in different subjects, the school’s report card is designed to show families how our school is doing in different areas. A link to our school’s report card is available at http://reportcards.doe.mass.edu/2021/01490525 .  A link to the district’s report card is available at http://reportcards.doe.mass.edu/2021/DistrictReportcard/01490000 .      

The report card includes multiple measures of a school’s performance – more than just MCAS scores. It represents a new way of looking at school performance, by providing information on student achievement, teacher qualifications, student learning opportunities, and more.  Report cards are designed to be useful tools for everyone connected to our school. Families can use the information to have meaningful conversations with us about what the school is doing well and where there is room for improvement. Community and education leaders can use the information to better understand how to support students and our school.

To improve student performance in our school, we are focused on inclusive practices to increase growth percentiles for all students, especially our English Learner and Special Education students. We encourage you to become involved in helping us improve our school. We see parents as critical partners in the success of our students and school, and we are grateful for your continued support.

Finally, if your child attends a school that receives federal Title I funds, you also have the right to request the following information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers:

  • Whether your child’s teacher is licensed in the grade levels and subject areas they teach,
  • Whether your child’s teacher is teaching under an emergency license or waiver,
  • The college degree and major of your child’s teacher, and
  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

If you have questions about our school’s report card, would like to become involved in school improvement activities, or would like to request information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher, please contact me at 978-722-8810.   

If you wish to see our district’s report card or to search for other schools’ report cards, visit reportcards.doe.mass.edu or the Lawrence Public Schools website www.lawrence.k12.ma.us .

 

Sincerely,

 

John Patterson,

Principal

Home Rapid Antigen Testing Program 

FRM Families, LPS is updating its COVID-19 testing program to provide weekly at-home tests for all participating students and staff.  Test kits have started to arrive from the state, schools have received communication from the district regarding distribution for staff and students.

Details of the program and an invitation to participate was shared with all families.  The opt-in form remains open, and we continue to message this opportunity to families and staff.  All of the current information and links – including paper forms – are currently posted on the COVID-19 Testing page found at the top of the district website.

 

 

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP Testing) will take place between now and February 18.  We will use the next 3 weeks to test in ELA, MATH and SCIENCE.  The test is adaptive to students' responses and will take approximately two hours per testing session.  It is also designed in such a way that students will get a percentage of items wrong as it changes to find their individual instructional level.  Please encourage your child to take these assessments seriously as it will provide information on their degree of improvement from the fall to winter.

 

Thank You,

Mr. Patterson
