  • Parent Teacher Conference Scheduling Instructions Fall 2021

     

     

    Dear Hammarskjold Families,

    During conferences October 19-22, there are no after school activities or late buses. All students are dismissed at 12:43 PM each day for early dismissal unless they typically remain at our after school encore program, as previously enrolled.

    Linked here is our conference list with links or call instructions, which is organized in subject order.


    Please locate the subject area your child is in and then alphabetically locate your child’s teacher.

    Here are video instructions if you need help with conferences and remember to email the teacher you are scheduled with if you have any difficulty connecting.

    Good luck with conferences!

     

    Kindly,

     

    Mike Gaskell, Hammarskjold Principal

  • MATH PLACEMENT

     

    During grades six and seven, students transition to pre-high school mathematics starting with sixth grade math. Some sixth-graders are placed in Math Prime, an advanced course.  Multiple measures determine Math placement for 6th grade students. The following criteria is considered for Math Prime eligibility:

    • Grade 5 Math NJ Student Learning Assessment (formerly known as PARCC)
    • Grade 5 Math Mid-Year Assessment
    • Grade 5 Math End-of-Year Assessment
    • Grade 5 Math Problem-Solving Average

    The typical student entering Math Prime in Grade 6 has earned a PARCC score of 810, scored 96% on the Grade 5 Math Mid-Year Assessment, scored 95% on the Grade 5 Math End-of-Year Assessment and has achieved a Grade 5 Math Problem-Solving Average of 96%.

    The study of pre-algebra then follows in seventh grade. Some students qualify for Algebra I in seventh grade, an advanced course.  Multiple measures determine Math placement for 7th grade students. The following criteria is considered for Algebra I eligibility:

    • Grade 6 Math NJ Student Learning Assessment (formerly known as PARCC)
    • The Algebra Aptitude Assessment
    • Grade 6 Math Midterm
    • Grade 6 Math Final Exam
    • Grade 6 Math Course Grade

    The typical student entering Algebra I  in Grade 7 has earned a PARCC score of 810, earned an Algebra Aptitude Assessment score of 181, scored 95% on their Math Prime or 98% on their Math 6 midterm, scored 95% on their Math Prime or 98% on their Math 6 final exam, and has achieved an overall course grade of 94% in Math Prime or 98% in Math 6.

  • Just a reminder about our procedure for dropping items off for your child:

    Please be sure to drop items off before your child's scheduled lunch so we can announce for them to pick up their item at their lunchtime. 

    *If you are unable to get to the school before their lunch, kindly contact your child at their lunch time when cell phones are permitted, to let them know the time you'll drop the item off and they can come pick it up  between periods in the afternoon. 

    We do not call into classrooms and disrupt instruction at Hammarskjold, which is why your communication with your child is important to convey this message.

    Thanks for working with us to make Hammarskjold as disruption free to your child's learning as possible.

    Kindly,

    Mike Gaskell, Hammarskjold Principal
