QUEST Period: Interventions and Enrichments

Our QUEST Period: Interventions and Enrichment groups start this week. Our QUEST period is 30 minutes each day. Every Monday all students stay in their 5th period class and there is a focus each Monday on a variety of topics like: Krimmel Core Values, College and Career Readiness, and Character Education.

Tuesdays-Fridays teachers can draft kids into groups based on things like additional help in core content areas based on classroom performance or weekly assessment data for example. However, teachers can also draft kids into enrichment groups like, but not limited to, mixed choir, coding, club officer meetings, leadership academy, Krimmel Knights Live, Name that Book, The Rampart (Student Led Literary Magazine) just to name a few! If there is a day a student isn't drafted, their invited to the cafeteria where they're monitored and can work on homework, study for any tests or quizzes, read a book of their choice, etc.

The goal is for teachers to be able to reach students, during the school day, to provide targeted interventions as well as offer enrichment activities to get kids more involved in activities at school.

QUEST Rosters are uploaded into Schoology each Monday for students so they know where to report each day of the week.

If you every have questions about QUEST, please feel free to reach out to your child's grade-level counselor or assistant principal.
