Progress Reports
Progress Reports are available today. You will find information about the current year’s progress in MasteryConnect and PowerSchool. This afternoon you should have received a parent activation email for MasteryConnect. The activation email was sent to the address that you have on file in PowerSchool. This will allow you to access your child’s MasteryConnect parent portal. You will be able to see the standards that your child has been working on in class and their current level of mastery. Please remember, while some standards are learned and assessed just a few times, other standards measure progress throughout the school year. This is a change in the way we look at reporting student progress. It is much more than just a letter grade. For more information regarding the standards-based grading approach, please visit our Morrison Academy academic information page.

As in the past, you will be able to find your child’s progress reports in PowerSchool. Please check under ‘Teacher Comments’ to see if your child has a progress report.
If you have any trouble accessing the parent portal, please try this helpful tutorial created by our Educational Technology Coach, Mr. Andy Wu.

親愛的家長:
近程學習報告今天已上線,您將在MasteryConnect和PowerSchool中看到有關此學年學生學習進度的資訊,今天下午您應該已收到如何登入MasteryConnect的電子郵件,此登入郵件是寄送到您當時在PowerSchool中所留的郵件地址,您將可以進入到MasteryConnect的家長版本,能夠看到您的孩子在課堂上的學習指標以及他們目前的掌握進度。請留意,有些學習指標老師目前只花了一點時間教授與評量,某些其他的指標為整個學年度的進展情況,這是我們本年度與以往報告學生進度的不同之處,它不僅僅只是表面所看到的一個分數。有關基於標準本位教育評分方法的更多訊息,請參照馬禮遜學術資訊網頁

如往常,您可在PowerSchool中找到您孩子的近程學習報告。請在「老師評語」下方查看您的孩子是否收到學習報告。
如果您在登入時遇到任何問題,請上我們的教育技術指導員Mr. Andy Wu所建立的使用指南,可為您排解相關問題。

Moon Festival Information from the EMS Chinese Department

Dear Parents,
We are so excited that Moon Festival is coming soon. Are you all ready to celebrate this special holiday with family and friends?

Moon Festival is one of the biggest holidays in Chinese culture, and the Chinese department will continue our tradition to celebrate this special holiday with all students. Since there are so many different types/flavors of mooncakes, we welcome any extra mooncakes donated from Morrison families. You can have your child bring them to their classroom or drop them off at the front office (labeled “EMS Chinese”).  This way, we all get to try different styles of moon cakes and celebrate the holiday on Sept. 19, 20, and 21 together. The Chinese Department will purchase pomelos, the traditional Moon Festival fruit, for each student. We will enjoy the fruit and make some crafts with the fruit. Thanks for your support.

親愛的家長:
一年一度的中秋佳節即將到來了!相信您也開始計劃和家人共度美好時光!
中秋節是我們的三大節日之一,今年中文部依然會持續與學生一同慶祝。
為了讓學生在今年也可繼續有中國文化的傳承,我們中文部在此將會教導以及讓學生體驗這特別的中國文化。​由於月餅有許多種口味,歡迎家長家裡有多餘的月餅,請學生帶給各班的老師,或是放置辦公室(標註「EMS中文部」)​,讓學生有機會嚐到各地不同口味的月餅。我們會在九月十九,二十,二十ㄧ日​一起享用,同時也彼此祝福。中文部也將購買柚子給每個學生,做柚子相關的手工藝。謝謝各位家長的支持!
