  • SBA Scores Posted in Family Access

    Posted by MARK BARNES on 5/15/2019

    Dear Families:

     

    Preliminary state test scores for Smarter Balanced English/Language Arts and Smarter Balanced Math are starting to become available on a per student basis.   While official scores don’t arrive until late summer, we wanted families to get a sneak peak and access these preliminary scores as soon as possible.   Student scores will be posted in Skyward Family Access on a regular basis throughout the next few weeks as they become available.   Listed below are directions for accessing scores in Family Access:

     

    1. Login to Family Access from top right link at www.bethelsd.org
      Note:  Your school’s main office can help you get a Family Access login if you don’t already have one.
    2. Select Test Scores on left margin.
    3. Click on the show scores link next to the test labeled “SBA” for your child’s grade level.

    To help you understand your child’s score, go to the state’s interactive test score guide:   testscoreguide.org/wa .   You can view a short video on how to navigate this test score guide at www.bethelsd.org/Domain/334.

     

    Please be advised that these preliminary scores are not finalized and in rare cases may change.  Officials scores and paper score reports will be available during the fall conferences. In addition, scores from the 5th, 8th, and 11th grade Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS) will not be available until fall.

  • Frontier SBA Testing Schedule

    Posted by MARK BARNES on 5/10/2019

    Parents,

    *Please talk with your son/daughter about their class schedule and identify which days they will be SBA testing over the next few weeks.

    *Testing sessions will occur in the morning, in extended testing blocks of time.

    *Please ensure that all students arrive to school on time, get a good night's sleep, and eat a healthy breakfast.

    *Students cannot in any case have a cell phone or 'Smart' watch on their person at anytime during their SBA testing. The state is enforcing this very strictly this year.

Principal's Message

  • Frontier Families,

    Greetings parents and students! We have had a great start to the school year. In fact, this is my 7th year at Frontier, and I can honestly say that we are off to the best start yet. I feel very optimistic about the learning and growth students will make this year.

    We are making concerted efforts to communicate with families even more this year. To better include you in your son or daughter's education, we are continuing or adding the following communication methods:

    1. We periodically send these recorded phone messages, that are accompanied by emails and texts too.

    2. We update our website "FMS News" links.

    3. We have added a Frontier Facebook page, with information you need to know.

    4. We are sending a short "This Week at Frontier" weekly update through Family Access.

    5. We have added a monthly parent newsletter.

    6. And we've asked teachers to share class information more often through Family Access messages. 

    Please view and read these communication efforts so you feel more connected and involved with Frontier, and please contact us if you feel we have missed any important information that would be helpful. 

     

    Sincerely,

    Mark Barnes

    Principal, Frontier Middle School
