Caution! DO NOT READ!!!
The example below shows this student made a 58. When a student sees that, they see a 58 as being a pretty poor grade and don't feel that great about how they did on the test. However, using this report, the student can see that over 1/2 of the questions he missed were all on one TEK! That's a relatively easy fix! As you can see by the note below, Mrs. Brown will meet with this student and go over 8.5A, and if he learns that one TEK, he will see that 58 turn into a 76, which is not terribly far off being commended. This is an awesome strategy and we highly recommend you implement it to see it work for you and your students. It will probably take you an hour or so to set up the template (which can be used every year), and once it is created, all you have to do is circle the questions each student missed.

Shout-out to Cammi Bruton for making our first College Day so successful! She did a great job providing a lesson that sparked curiosity in our students and got them thinking about the possibilities beyond high school! She gave some their first glimpse that college could be a possibility for them.
Shout-out to all the staff for helping the custodians by having the students use the trash cans in the hallway for food and drink items. Thank you!!

Either individually, or as a team, please nominate a student for Outstanding Student. This needs to be submitted by Wednesday, October 28th. If it is a team decision, please indicate that.
