The Ninth Grade Experience MISSION

VISION

Since 1854, the mission of Norwich Free Academy has been to “return to our hamlets and our homes its priceless freight of youthful minds, enriched by learning, developed by a liberal culture, refined by study of all that is beautiful in nature and art, and prepared for the highest usefulness and the purest happiness.”

The Ninth Grade Experience establishes an educational environment in which all students can achieve academic and social success, begin the path to earning a high school diploma, and leave the Academy with the knowledge, skill, and experience to succeed in their chosen path in life – work, further education, or the military.

Founder, John P. Gulliver Dedication Ceremony - 1856

GOALS • Provide a smooth transition to NFA • Promote pride in academic achievement, emphasizing high expectations

• Help students establish good work habits • Promote class and school pride • Encourage communication between parents and teachers

• Provide opportunities for parents and teachers to discuss, seek help for, and support students

• Provide faculty opportunities to make curriculum and student placement recommendations

• Encourage teachers to employ a variety

of classroom activities, methods and ideas and to share them with one another

• Provide a variety of interdisciplinary learning experiences

2


Students who enter NFA as ninth graders come from a variety of different schools, districts, and towns. To facilitate this transition, the ninth grade spends most of the school day in Cranston House. To make the ninth grade experience even more personal, the program is divided into units of about 100 students. There are five units, designated by Greek Letter, each with three teachers; one from each of three major content areas (English, science, and social studies). Classes in mathematics are based on course placement and include students from all five units. Each unit also has the support of a school counselor, special educators and faculty in elective subjects.

*Unit Leader

Teachers in each unit have common planning time and meet regularly to assess student progress. Unit teachers, mathematics teachers, and school counselors develop strategies, seek specialized help, and communicate with parents about each student.

DAILY SCHOOL HOURS 7:25 a.m. – 2:10 p.m. Students should be present and ready to begin their first period class at 7:25 a.m. 3


Becoming Involved CONNECTIONS PARENTS NIGHT 6-8:30 p.m., Thursday, September 12, 2019 Parents have the opportunity to follow an abbreviated form of their child’s schedule to meet teachers, hear classroom expectations, and learn more about the ninth grade curriculum.

PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES Thursday, November 14, 2019 Afternoon and evening appointments Parents meet with individual teachers in scheduled appointments to discuss student performance and classroom progress.

PARENT COUNCIL NFA’s Parent Council furthers the interests and needs of the students at the Academy. Membership is open to all parents and legal guardians of students attending NFA and to parents and guardians of eighth grade students in partner towns. Become actively involved. For more information contact John Iovino, Director, Student Affairs, or visit MyNFA>Parents at nfaschool.org.

4

ATHLETICS, ACTIVITIES, & CLUBS Participation in school activities is an important part of an educational program and key to young adult social development. Students who connect to school and their classmates through athletics, clubs, and activities generally earn higher grades, learn important social skills, and improve their sense of health and well-being. Encourage your child to join at least one activity. For a full listing of athletic teams, clubs, and activities, consult NFA’s Co-Curricular Activities Booklet or visit the Athletics and Campus Life pages at nfaschool.org.


BECOMING INVOLVED MyNFA>Parents You may find the answers to many common questions at MyNFA>Parents. MyNFA>Parents clusters information for parents. It is not password protected but does provide access to your password protected PowerSchool account. Here also find Daily Notices, forms, notifications, and other information for parents. If you have questions or suggestions about digitally connecting, contact Communications@nfaschool.org.

HELP YOUR CHILD SUCCEED AT NFA Most importantly, encourage your child to seek help before a problem grows. Open communication between students and teachers most often resolves classroom problems. Most ninth-graders find that the amount and the quality of work expected at NFA is different from that expected of students in the middle-school years. High school demands greater organization, effort, and commitment.

5


Focusing on Student Success SUGGESTIONS WHAT PARENTS CAN DO TO EASE ADJUSTMENT • Provide a well-lit, uncluttered

place for your child to study and do homework every day. A bedroom may not necessarily be the best environment if there are distractions and if your child needs reminders to stay focused.

• Encourage your child to work on the most difficult or least favorite subject first while he/she is still fresh and energetic.

• Help your child develop a plan to manage time. Show him or her how to balance time for school work with time for activities, friends, and family. Keep abreast of assignments to help your child plan for long-term projects.

• Expect about two hours of

homework per night. Quality work takes this long. Most students do not have enough study hall time to complete all of their work during the school day.

• Check your child’s assignment

planner. It should be visible while he/she is studying as a reminder. If your child claims not to have

6

any homework, ask to see the assignment planner. It should be filled out. If not, ask that it be completed in the future. Compare the contents in the assignment planner with work your child can show you.

• Have your child sign in through

the student portal to his/ her individual dashboard at MyNFA>Students on the NFA website. There you can find major assignments and information posted from each teacher for each class.

• Sign into your PowerSchool

account to check your child’s progress. Access PowerSchool on the NFA website at MyNFA>Parents. More information about PowerSchool is available under Grading.

• Encourage your child to put aside the cell phone and to disconnect from social media when studying to sustain concentration and prevent distractions.


• Set rewards and consequences

for accomplishments. Five or ten minutes to read a magazine, exercise, or make a quick phone call will provide breaks between periods of homework completion.

• Spend quality time with your child

as a reward. Become involved in his/ her life and learning. Pay attention to friends and behavior.

• Set reasonable limits for telephone,

television, computer, free time, and weekend activities if limits will motivate more responsible behavior with schoolwork.

• Know your child and help him/her

set reasonable goals (challenging, but attainable). Support him/ her every day. Adolescents need predictable, consistent support. There is a fine line between realistic and stressful expectations. High school will mature students, but maturity does not happen overnight.

• Be proactive and contact your

child’s teachers or school counselor if you have questions or are simply curious about your child’s workload, performance, or well-being. 7


ATTENDANCE POLICY At Norwich Free Academy, classroom instruction and experience are an essential part of learning. Prompt and regular class attendance enhances academic success. In addition, regular attendance teaches students responsibility. NFA’s attendance policy mirrors real life and workplace expectations to develop positive work habits. On the morning of any absence call the Attendance Secretary (860-425-5772) to report or to verify your child’s absence. Please provide a note to document each absence when your child returns to school. Please note: A student’s first 9 absences are excused if a note from a parent/guardian is submitted within 10 days of the absence. After the 10th absence and for each subsequent absence, the absence is excused only for illness verified by a licensed medical professional, observance of a religious holiday, death in the family or other family emergency, mandated court appearance verified by the court, or a pre-approved extraordinary educational opportunity. If attendance does not show improvement, school officials will meet with the student and/or family to create an attendance improvement plan.

To receive credit for a course, students must earn a passing grade and fulfill the class attendance requirements as stated below: 1. Credit will be withheld when a student exceeds nine (9) class absences from a class for the semester. 2. Class absences as a result of a student’s participation in an approved school-sponsored activity, absences with documentation from a medical professional, suspension days, religious holiday, court appearance, or approved college visit will not count toward the total. 3. Follow your child’s daily class attendance using your PowerSchool Account accessible at MyNFA>Parents. More information about PowerSchool is available under Grading. 4. After the tenth (10) absence from class, a student’s parents/guardians will be informed that credit will be withheld. Information for the appeal process will be provided before the end of each semester. 5. Credit withheld because of excessive absences will not affect recorded grades for GPA, and will not count for graduation or class rank. 6. A student whose credit is withheld for excessive absences may appeal the decision at the end of the semester. All appeals must be made in writing to the student’s House Principal. 7. Contact your child’s school counselor if you have questions about attendance.

Academic and Personal Expectations for Students

TARDINESS 1. School begins at 7:25 a.m.; students should be in their first period class ready to begin. There is no daily homeroom. Students not present in their first class at 7:25 a.m., are tardy to school; they must check in with the Cranston House Attendance Secretary to receive a pass to class. 2. Tardiness to school with properly documented medical, court or pre-approved appointments is excused. Proper documentation is an official appointment card/letter from a professional office.

nfaschool.org/parents AT A GLANCE

At a Glance – Knowing the NFA Way

3. Class time missed as a result of unexcused tardiness may count as an absence from class, may count toward the total number of semester class absences and may affect class credit, pursuant to the attendance policy. 4. Tardiness to school and failure to report to the attendance secretary are major factors in the deliberation of the attendance appeals committee. See the NFA student handbook, The Pilot, for more detail.

GRADING Norwich Free Academy uses PowerSchool, a web-based, student information system to manage and store grading, attendance, and scheduling information. Parents can monitor student performance via PowerSchool. Click MyNFA>Parents on the website, find the PowerSchool button to the right. This is your parent portal or “electronic doorway” to PowerSchool. Parents receive a unique Access ID and Password to set up a PowerSchool account. Follow the prompts after clicking the “Create Account” button. With your account, you can access real-time information – grades, attendance, assignments, and teacher comments. Everyone stays connected. Students can stay on top of assignments, parents can monitor progress, and teachers can share information. Parents will receive an email to notify them to check their PowerSchool account at the midpoint of each quarter. Report cards are mailed twice each semester (four times per year). The second and fourth report cards indicate final semester grades and credits toward graduation.

Achievement is reported as follows: A Superior B Above Average C Average D Below Average F Failure (no credit) The symbols - (minus) and + (plus) further distinguish quality; however, there are no A+, F+, or F-. I Incomplete (student allowed to make up work for credit) S Satisfactory (Progress Report) U Unsatisfactory (Progress Report) Unexcused absences from class result in a zero for the day; work and tests on that day may not be made-up.

10


MyNFA: Student Portal and Dashboard Every day, students should sign on at MyNFA>Students to check their Portal Dashboard for daily notices, school-wide announcements, updates, and other important information. From the Dashboard, students may access useful links, necessary tools, and their G-Mail account, which they should check daily as more and more communications and school operations are conducted electronically. Also, students can access academic group space pages for each class in their schedule and group space pages for their sports, clubs, and activities. On academic group space pages, teachers post and keep current information for each class. Pages include a course description and grading policy indicating those areas the teacher considers in grading. Areas may include achievement, effort, class participation, assignments/homework, attendance, and extra-credit. Teachers also post major assignments and assessment dates on a classroom calendar and post important content and links to useful resources and tools. The NFA APP – Students can access their academic group spaces, the calendar, news & events, and much, much more from their iOS or Android Device by downloading the NFA App available free from the App Store.

DAILY NOTICES Daily notices are posted for students on their Portal Dashboard; they are also posted for parents on MyNFA>Parents. Notices are available on Twitter@nfaschool. Other important information is posted on Digital Signs at strategic locations in each building and in the cafeteria.

EXAMS Exams are administered at the end of each semester. Exam days are early release days, and lunch is not served on those days. In order for your child to be eligible for a makeup exam/activity, please call the school to notify your child’s school counselor before an exam period begins. Failure to do so may forfeit a child’s make-up privilege. 11


nfaschool.org/parents

CODE OF CONDUCT and CHARACTER NFA students have composed this code to guide their conduct and set a standard for the school and community. It is a good reference for parents. To live with one another in our diverse society, we must recognize and reinforce the importance of character traits such as honesty, integrity, respect, and responsibility. Success lies in an individual’s respect for self and others. As an NFA student, I will do my best: • To be trustworthy to my teachers and peers • To maintain a high standard of academic integrity • To have respect for school and public property • To dress and conduct myself in ways appropriate for public places • To behave in a mature and responsible manner during all school-sponsored activities • To promote a positive school community and climate free of intimidation, bullying, or other inappropriate social behavior • To reinforce positive behavior and to model appropriate interpersonal interaction • To be proud of and loyal to my school

To exhibit good character as an NFA student, I will: • Demonstrate respect, consideration, and compassion for others • Take responsibility for my actions • Lead by setting a positive example for my peers • Promote honesty and trustworthiness in others and myself • Cooperate with teachers and peers to foster a safe learning environment • Participate actively in my school community

LIBRARY

SOCIAL MEDIA

The Land Library is open 7a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Thursday, and 7a.m. – 3 p.m. on Fridays. In addition the library is open 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., the first Saturday of each month. The library is also open during school vacations. Check library hours by calling the Circulation Desk at 860-425-5751.

Behavior on social media is an extension of behavior in person. The same guidelines which apply to face-to-face or verbal behavior also apply to social media. The use of social media to distribute, display, or share unauthorized images, video, or audio that hurts another person or persons at school or disrupts the learning environment in any way Is subject to the disciplinary consequences listed in The Pilot.

All online library products and services are accessible remotely. All students and their families have access to NFA’s library’s catalogue, databases, and search engines for their own research purposes. Parents can access them from MyNFA>Parents. Students access them from their portal dashboard at MyNFA>Students. Students receive a unique user name and password during library orientatation.

SMART PHONES AND ELECTRONIC DEVICES Smart phones and electronic devices may be used in the classroom only at the individual teacher’s discretion. Students should not use these devices in class at any time without their teacher’s permission. A student who does not follow classroom guidelines about electronic device use may be referred to the Cranston House Principal for insubordination.

Remember, social media is the tool; you are the user. Do not post any content (language or images) on any social media platform which you would not like to see appear on the front page of a newspaper or to be repeated publically in an adult forum. Remember, the Internet Is permanent. Deleting does not mean that your words or images have disappeared forever and cannot be discovered. Follow these simple guidelines to use social medial positively: • Think twice before posting • Always be respectful and positive • Know your audience • Don’t post if you are angry, upset, or In a negative emotional state.

EXTRA HELP Teachers stay after school at least two days per week to help students and to afford make-up privileges. Encourage your child to take advantage of this opportunity. 13


Frequent Questions... Frequent Answers What should I do if my child will be absent? On the morning of the absence, please call the Attendance Secretary (860-425-5772) to inform her of the absence. If the Attendance Secretary does not receive a call from you in the morning, the school will call home and/or your workplace to verify your child’s absence. If phone contact is not made, the Attendance Secretary will send a letter home to inform you of your child’s absence.

What if my child will be absent for a prolonged period of time? Please inform the Attendance Secretary and your child’s school counselor of the absence as soon as you know such absence is expected.

How do I arrange to receive homework during my child’s absence? A telephone call to the House Secretary (860-425-5771) in the early morning allows enough time to gather assignments from teachers. She will call you to make arrangements for pick up. You may come to school to pick up work or arrange to send the work home with a sibling, friend or neighbor. It is also possible to email the request directly to your child’s teacher.

What if my child arrives late to school? School begins at 7:25 a.m. Students should be present in their first period class and ready to begin at that time. Students not present in their first period class at 7:25 a.m., are tardy to school and must report to the Attendance Secretary to check in and receive a pass to class. Students with chronic tardiness may be referred to the Cranston support team for an intervention meeting. There is no daily homeroom, but there is a weekly homeroom 8:30-8:40 a.m., Tuesday.

14


What if my child is tardy because of an appointment? Let the Attendance Secretary know, and provide proper documentation if your child will be late to school because of a medical or legal appointment.

How do I obtain more information about NFA activities and programs?

A student must bring a note from a parent to the Attendance Secretary in the morning. The note should state the date, time and reason for dismissal. She will give the student a pass to leave class at the specified time and to meet you for pick up at the South (Main) Entrance to campus by the Visitor Check-In Station.

Visit the NFA website at www.nfaschool.org to gain access to information about all the programs, athletics, and activities taking place on campus. Campus News and the Calendar on the home page are good places to find information and learn about events and activities, as are MyNFA>Parents, Quicklinks, and Campus Life.

In exceptional circumstances or during an emergency, please call the Attendance Secretary who will make arrangements with you for pick up, and for a dismissal pass to be delivered to your child.

Follow NFA on Twitter and Instagram @nfaschool and on Facebook at www.facebook. com/norwichfreeacademy.

What if my child needs to be dismissed early from school?

We appreciate your cooperation since it is difficult to reach students on short notice. A note received in the morning will insure that your child will be dismissed as requested.

What if there is a problem with bus transportation, or how do I find out more information about bus transportation? NFA does not provide bus transportation to and from school. NFA’s partner communities provide bus transportation. If you have a question about your town’s transportation practices, the following information may be helpful: Town Canterbury Franklin, Brooklyn, Sprague Norwich, Lisbon, Bozrah Preston Voluntown

If my child needs to use a phone, what is the procedure? Students may use telephones in the Cranston House Office or in their school counselor’s office during non-class time. Students are not to use cell phones to make calls during school hours. Cell phone use is always at the classroom teacher’s discretion, and students should always use good cell phone etiquette.

16

How does my child learn about what is happening at school? Daily notices are posted for students on their Portal Dashboard; they are also posted for parents on MyNFA>Parents. Other important information is posted on Digital Signs at strategic locations in each building and in the cafeteria.

Are lockers available for students? If so, how are they distributed? There will be an announcement during the first week of school about locker availability. Lockers are distributed on a first come, first served basis. Students must bring a combination lock from home and register the combination with the office.


How can my child pay for lunch at school? Chartwells, a division of Compass Group North America, and a leader in educational dining service, partners with NFA to provide an affordable range of choices and nutritious dining options for breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack. The afternoon snack is available to all students at no cost.

At MyNFA>Parents, click on the Chartwells Food Service to access MySchoolBucks to arrange to pay online for meals at school. The MySchoolBucks button takes you to the site; follow a few simple directions to set up your account.

Food is available in the cafeteria in the Tirrell Building and from NFA’s food cart on campus.

Students use their NFA ID as a debit card to purchase food against their MySchoolBucks balance. Deposit money using Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or electronic check, set automatic deposits to manage your balance, view each child’s balance, and set e-mail low balance alerts. You will receive an automatic email notification if your account is overdrawn.

NFA participates in the National School Lunch Program. Please Note: Because NFA’s program does not provide universal free lunch to all students, students and families must apply to receive these benefits. (If your family receives SNAP or other state benefits, your child will be directly certified and will not need to apply.) A Free and Reduced Price School Meals Application Form will be given to students in homeroom at the beginning of the school year. To apply, fill out and submit all documents to the Cranston House Office. Find more information and forms (in multiple languages) at nfaschool. org/chartwells.

You will need to enter each child’s name, birthdate, and student ID.

Technical support is available at 855-832-5226 or at support@ myschoolbucks.com. Also, at Chartwells Food Service at MyNFA>Parents find the Nutrislice link to school lunch menus and nutritional information and find a link to NFA’s Charging Policy. NFA and Chartwells Dining Services do not wish that any student go hungry and/or be denied food; however, restrictions are placed upon a student’s ability to charge meals. Please review the terms and conditions under which students may charge for meals available at MyNFA>Parents on the NFA website. 17

Campus Access To serve families and the public and smooth campus traffic flow, three major access points exist on campus: a. The North Entrance on Broadway b. The South (Main) Entrance on Crescent Street c. The East Entrance on Joseph Perkins Road Morning Drop-off – Parents may use the North Entrance to drop off students in the morning. The North Entrance avoids the bus congestion to the south of campus and allows parents to pull in, drop off at the Shattuck Circle, and exit via Broadway. For student safety, during the morning bus drop-off period (approximately 6:55 – 7:25 a.m.) on the south end of campus, private vehicles may not drop off students by entering campus at the South (Main) Entrance on Crescent Street. Parents are asked to drop off their children curbside along Crescent Street. School-Day Access – Between 7:25 a.m. and 2:10 p.m. (school hours), the North and East Entrances are closed. To pick up or drop off your child between 7:25 a.m. and 2:10 p.m., use the South (Main) Entrance on Crescent Street and stop at the Visitor Check-In Station. Access to campus during school hours is through the South (Main) Entrance on Crescent Street. Stop at the Visitor Check-In Station at the South (Main) Entrance on Crescent Street. If you have an appointment, you will be expected, checked in immediately, and directed to visitor parking. Unexpected visitors will be accommodated in visitor parking and escorted to the Campus Safety Welcome Center in nearby Slater where visitor credentials will be arranged. If your child forgets lunch money, gym clothes, homework or a project, use the South (Main) Entrance on Crescent Street, and leave the item at the Check-In Station. It will be delivered to your child. This service is for important school-related items only.
