Goal #2: Literacy Goal- Increase student Lexile scores by 50 points after 4 consecutive terms of participation.
Plan- Contract with the University of Utah Reading Clinic to provide targeted literacy instruction for teachers in Fluency Oriented Reading Interventions.

If you have any questions or would like us to consider a different plan or strategy, please let me know by emailing me at email@example.com.
Student of the Month - Esperansa Mata
Esperansa is amazing and dedicated and graduated an impressive two months before the end of her Junior year! Prior to graduating, she was always here at school on time and ready to work! She was invested in learning and loved to ask for help when she didn't understand something. She was always friendly and eager to help others understand as well. Espy was part of the SBOs and was very involved with many activities in our school. Her participation in every class was outstanding. This year her attendance was 92%, her GPA was 3.6 and she earned more than 10 credits! We are excited that she is going to speak at our graduation ceremony and she has already started drafting her speech. Esperansa embodies each of our ARISE standards and serves as a wonderful model to other students.
Espy really enjoyed her ceramics classes and was proud of her work with the SBOs. She liked helping other students feel comfortable at school and planning our ARISE assemblies. Setting up games was something she was particularly fond of and good at. Bobbing for apples during the Halloween assembly was great fun for all. She was a natural emcee for these celebrations and had a positive impact on these events. Espy plans to attend OTech for Dental Assisting and is working with her counselor and advisor to get started with this program.
