As you know, our 8th graders are currently completing and turning in applications for district pathways. While some 8th-graders have already made a choice about which pathway they are applying to, others are having trouble deciding.
8th-grade parents need to be aware that Pathway Tours are being offered to parents, students, and community members to assist students and their families in the process of deciding on a pathway. Students and parents can choose a high school and pathway to visit on Nov. 15th and Dec 6th at 9:00 AM and 12:00 noon. Bartlett School will be taking groups of students to visit the various pathways during these tours. If you would like to join us for a Pathway tour or would like your student to visit any of the pathways, you can contact the School Counselor at 559.782-7100.
Eighth-grade parents need to be aware that the application for the 14 Open Choice Pathways is available online at pathways.portervilleschools.org. Parents can also secure a hard copy of the application at the PUSD Pathways Office or at the Bartlett Middle School office.
We hope that you will take some time to talk to your students and help them make a choice about which pathways they are interested in. Applications must be returned to the school by November 29.
Parents are invited to call the school counselor at 559.782.7100 for information about the Pathways.
Please be aware that Monday, October 28 is the 8th grade trip to the Galaxy Theater for the PUSD Pathway Showcase. During this trip, our 8th graders will learn about the different pathways offered by the district so that they will be better able to choose a pathway as they enter high school.
We will be leaving from the school to the Galaxy Theater at 8:30 am and returning at approximately 11:30. Students have been advised to dress appropriately and look their best.
Parents are invited to attend a presentation at the Galaxy Theatre that same day at 5:30 pm. The presentation will be in English and Spanish and will give parents an overview of each Pathway.
If you have any questions, contact the School Counselor at 782-7100 ext. 3052.
Please be aware that we will be holding Parent-Teacher Conferences here at Bartlett Middle School during the week of October 14 through the 18. During this week, students will be released at 1:45 each day. Teachers will be scheduling 10-minute appointments with parents from 1:50 to 3:50 PM each day that week. This is a great opportunity for parents to meet with teachers and review their students’ progress.
At this time, teachers are making efforts to contact parents whose students are failing their classes. If your student is failing or nearly failing a class, we hope that they will be able to reach you and set up an appointment to meet. Parents wishing to make an appointment for a conference may call the school or contact teachers via email. Email addresses are available at our website at https://bartlett.portervilleschools.org
If you do not receive a phone call from any of your child’s teachers regarding his or her grades, but you would still like to meet for conferences then Wednesday, October 16th will be left open for walk-in appointments. You may come in and meet with teachers anytime between 1:50 and 3:30 pm.
Please call us at 559.782.7100 if you have any questions.
