October ASSERTION VIPS!
Congratulations to our ASSERTION VIPs for the month of October. Keep up the great work! November our focus will turn to RESPONSIBILITY.
SHPA Town Hall Meeting
Thank you to those of you that attended the Town Hall meeting on Tuesday evening. Mr. Peterson, Principal at our Bloomington Campus, shared an overview of the 2021-22 Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment results (2021-22 MCA & Testing Summary Results) and Mr. Lamprecht, Teacher Board Member, provided an update on the Bloomington Campus property search. We also summarized the feedback from the parent surveys to determine what are top priorities for our families in this search. Our next step is to survey our teachers and staff.
Bloomington Property Search
As we continue to work with Wildamere in our search for our own new Bloomington Campus, the goal of the School Board and the administrative team is to consider the following as top priorities:
Conducive Learning Classrooms, Space to build a Playground, Gym Facilities, Green Space, and Room for Transportation and Parking
Our goal is to finalize our property search by the spring of 2023 and start renovations to the new site during the 2023-24 school year. We would then have teachers and staff move in with the plan to open for all students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth grade for the 2024-25 school year.
For future Town Halls, we will plan to have an online option as well as in person.
Lost and Found
All items left behind by students are placed in the Lost and Found. Many articles of clothing have been waiting to be worn for a long time. Everything remaining in the Lost and Found at the end of the first trimester will be donated to a non profit organization.
Child Tax Credit Deadline
Millions of eligible families may easily claim the expanded Child Tax Credit (CTC) until Nov. 15, 2022. Eligible families can claim the CTC at GetCTC.org/mn.
Many families may not know that they are eligible for the CTC or that they can still claim it using a simplified filing tool. Families can also use the simplified tool to file their tax return if they have not yet received the third stimulus check. The simplified tool GetCTC.org/mn is for families who do not have a 2021 filing requirement – typically this means their income is below $12,550 if filing single, or $25,100 if filing married. The traditional filing method is still available until 2025. The November 15 deadline is for those interested in using the electronic portal.
