If you didn't get the email, here is the message we just sent home about portfolios and keeping 8th graders on track for success.
Dear 8th grade parents
Spring break has almost arrived. We hope you have an excellent 2 weeks with your students and that they get the rest and rejuvenation they need to finish their last year strong.
With 8th grade winding down, portfolio time is almost upon us. Students will be presenting their portfolios on May 14th and 15th. They have been working hard in class to hone their ePortfolios. They have been writing and revising their cover letters. They have begun the first of many rounds of practice interviews.
We have checked in with students and believe most to be on track for success in this culminating project. Even so, here are a few things you can be watching for over the next month that will help them stay on that track to portfolio success.
- Look at your student’s ePortfolio. Look for professional layout and help them edit for typos and grammar.
- Students should have evidence of their best work samples embedded in their ePortfolios.
- Students have already written draft responses to their interview questions. Many could benefit from help refining those answers to greater depth and reflectiveness
You should be able to access information about your student's ePortfolio and see their written responses to interview questions through their Technology class on Schoology. ThePortfolio Handbook can be found on our website.

Happy Spring Leading Edge Families. Just a reminder that Spring Break is coming right up. We will be on break from Monday March 30 through Friday April 10.
Leading up to break Leading Edge ASB is hosting a Rally Wednesday morning from 9:20-9:45 in the gym and LEAP is sponsoring movie night Friday at 3:30. We are showing Big Hero 6. $3 for pizza and snacks.
Leading Edge 8th graders spent last week in Ashland, Oregon seeing plays and training with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. A great experience in its own right, this trip is preparing them to prepare their own theatrical productions of fairly tales that they will perform for area elementary schoolers.
