The Weekly Wrap-Up

REACH High School

April 3 - 7 (30th Edition)

Easter Edition

A Message from Mr. Licciardi

Dear REACH Community,

Leading up to Easter's extended weekend, we most definitely kept busy. We had our annual Egg-Stravaganza in partnership with members of the student community of Joy James Leadership Academy as well as welcomed a representative from Tarrant County College. We are grateful to have had Ms. Heredia meet one-on-one with students all day to map out the application and enrollment process for new students.

Now for attendance, nothing has changed. It truly matters to avoid a Truancy Prevention Measure and fine and the students' eligibility to earn credits in order to graduate as planned. Remember, attendance is crucial when a passing grade academically cannot be granted if students have 10 or more absences. For some, it will prevent you from walking the stage in May.

News to note!

  1. Due to weather days in late January into early February, the school year has been extended through to Wednesday, May 31. This means that we will be engaging in year-end instructional and fun activities on those added days. More to come on that! See the updated calendar below.
  2. Check out the 2023-2024 school calendar by clicking here or scrolling down.
  3. TFAR (Texas Formative Assessment Resource) "at bats" coming next week in English and Social Studies.

Have a Blessed Easter and Passover weekend,

Pascal Licciardi

MAP Testing

What? Why? When?

REACH High School is participating in a Measures of Academic Progress Test. We will be using results from the test over the course of the year to help track student progress so that teachers are positioned to tailor their instruction to meet the needs of all learners. In addition, the test results will be neatly packaged into reports for students and families equipping them with meaningful performance information.

The next cycle of testing will be in May.
