The Weekly Wrap-Up

REACH High School

March 20 - 24 (28th Edition)

A Message from Mr. Licciardi

Dear REACH Community,

Well, believe it or not, March is coming to an end quite quickly. A week from today will be the last day of March. The one thing we can agree on is that we have not slowed down at all this month. In fact, we came back from spring break with gusto as we had our first Mock Interview Event. To say the least, it was a success. Our invited industry experts were phenomenal, our students were on point, and the REACH Team in partnership with the SBDM Committee helped tee up the event. Check out the pictures below!

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 Math and Science.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Pascal Licciardi

Principal | REACH High School

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.
