I would like to take some time to thank the Triton parents, guardians, and families for your continued support, engagement, and partnership as we work together to make sure each learner is provided an appropriate instructional program. Thank you to the parents that attended the middle school open house, parent meetings, field trips, parent-teacher conferences and the numerous athletic/fine arts events that have taken place so far this year.
The middle level years are crucial in developing lifelong habits for success. For learners to reach their potential we need to establish and enhance partnerships with all families and the community. Most schools and families agree that establishing reliable communication and developing trusting relationships is key to a healthy partnership. As a middle school staff we have spent time discussing and searching for ways to improve school outreach and communication. The list below is a brief summary on steps that can be taken to increase your knowledge base and awareness of your child’s academic progress.
Middle School Parent Focus Group
In an effort to improve family engagement, we have started a Middle School Parent Focus Group. This group was initiated to enhance an environment where all families are involved and empowered throughout the educational process. We have and will be discussing items such as student achievement, conference formats, fundraising, scheduling, grading practices and communication strategies. Any parents interested in attending are welcome. Please contact me and I will make sure you have all meeting dates and information.
Planner & Infinite Campus Parent Portal
Each child has been provided a planner and is expected to use it for all classes. This can be a valuable resource for parents to view and monitor student progress.
All parents/guardians have access to the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. This tool can be used to view student grades, assignments, behavior incidents, and lunch account balances. Please contact Joan Henderson or Luke Lutterman if you need help accessing your parent portal. There is also a link located on the Triton Homepage under the middle school tab that can be used to access the portal.
School Webpage and Social Media
Middle School information can be accessed via the triton webpage at www.triton.k12.mn.us. Current teacher contact information and other resources can be found under the middle school tab. Triton also uses the following social media platforms for communication and promotion.

All students now have access to a chromebook or computer during every class. Teachers are utilizing the google classroom platform to deliver class content electronically. Please feel free to contact your child’s teachers for access code information.
