'A Night at the Museum' Evening
March 28, 4:30-8:00 pm
Middle level students have unique needs and capabilities and are truly caught in the middle between childhood and adulthood. Students at Ecker Hill hold the key to much of what they know and are able to do. They understand their strengths and they can identify the things that are difficult for them. Too often they are the last people consulted in evaluating their own learning.
This spring we are holding a ‘A Night at the Museum’ evening in place of regular conferences. This will provide all of our students an opportunity to showcase their work and allow them to discuss their learning. ‘A Night at the Museum’ at Ecker Hill will focus on students and their growth. There are three main purposes for this evening:
1. Show evidence of student learning.
2. Provide opportunity for students to reflect on their learning.
3. Foster and promote responsible, respectful, and productive relationships
among school, family and community.
We are excited to see you all on March 28. ‘A Night at the Museum’ begins at 4:30pm and concludes at 8:00pm. Students have worked hard and are proud of their work.
Conferencia de Padres de familia “Una Noche en el Museo:”
28 de marzo, 4:30-8:00 pm
Estudiantes de 6to y 7mo grado están en un proceso de desarrollo único. Los estudiantes de Ecker Hill entienden sus fortalezas y pueden identificar sus dificultades. Muchas veces los estudiantes en si son las últimas personas en asesorar su proceso de aprendizaje.
Esta conferencia de padres de familia será diferente, “Una Noche en el Museo,” es un espacio para que el estudiante pueda compartir y mostrar su aprendizaje hasta ahora. “Una Noche en el Museo” tiene como enfoque el crecimiento del estudiante en la escuela. Los tres puntos importantes para esta noche son:
1. Mostrar evidencia del aprendizaje del estudiante
2. Darle la oportunidad de reflexionar sobre su aprendizaje
3. Fortalecer y promover la responsabilidad y el respecto entre la escuela, la familia, y la comunidad.
Nos emociona ver a las familias de Ecker Hill el día 28 de Marzo. “Una Noche en el Museo” inicia a las 4:30 pm y concluye a las 8:00 pm. Los estudiantes han trabajado mucho y están orgullosos de su participación. ¡No falten!

To set up a Parent PowerSchool Account, parents will need their student's parent access ID and password. (This information is mailed home the first week of September.) Parents can link all of their students to one Parent Account, all you need is the parent access ID and password for each of your students. For instructions, see the Parent Single Sign-On Instruction Sheet.
If you lose, or didn't receive, your Parent Account set-up instructions, contact the school. For security reasons, we will not give out account information by phone, fax, or email. Logins can be picked up in person or mailed to the home address we have on file. PowerSchool logins are reset every summer to protect your privacy.
With a Parent PowerSchool Account, parents will have access to a special Email Notifications page where they can sign up for automatic progress reports. Because of this exclusive feature, it is highly recommended that parents keep their account ID and password confidential and not share it with their student. Students get their own ID and password when they pick up their laptop.
How to sign up for PowerSchool Email Notifications
Parents can now create their own Canvas account and link to all their PCSD Students. Provided below is a list of information each parent will need to have on hand and links to the instructions on creating the account and linking the students.
