Edgenuity Pathblazer

Today's middle school classrooms need rigorous, engaging learning tools that support students' varied learning styles. Edgenuity's online solutions help students receive the instruction and practice they need to excel academically. GMS students have recently completed the MAP assessments. Based on each individual student's RIT ranges in Math and Literacy, the Edgenuity Pathblazer computer based program has created a pathway for each student based on their strengths and weaknesses. Students will be using this program at school during Fast Focus, but can also access it at home to practice individual skills. Ask your child about this awesome learning opportunity that can be used at school and home and use the link below for your child to log in to Pathblazer.

Reminders:

  • GMS holds our students accountable to complete ALL assignments and therefore we have a "no zero policy. Every student will complete every assignment! If a student does not have an assignment from the previous week completed by the end of the school day on Tuesday, their name will be placed on the ICU list. Once a student's name is placed on the ICU list on Tuesday, they must go to ICU the following day even if they complete the assignment Tuesday evening. They will be given an extended learning activity for extra practice. However, if the student turns the assignment in on Wednesday, they will be taken off the list and will not have to attend ICU on Thursday. If student is still on the list on Friday, they will go to ICU during lunch and during their electives in order to be given the extra time needed to complete quality work. PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD TO COMPLETE EVERY ASSIGNMENT ON TIME TO AVOID BEING PLACED ON THE ICU LIST.
