Teachers and students have worked hard this year and it has paid off. 88% classes have increased the percentage of students meeting or exceeding their goals from last school year in Reading. 57% of the classes have increased the percentage of students meeting or exceeding their goals from last school year in Math. 88% of the classrooms have 50% or more of the students meeting/exceeding their goal in Reading. 100% of the classrooms have more than 50% of the students meeting/exceeding their goals in Mathematics.

Lockdown Drill

Last week's Lockdown Drill went fairly well. Remember, students must not be visible from the classroom door glass. No one should be able to look inside the classroom and see students. Hiding under the desk or table is not appropriate because students can still be seen through the window on the door. The Lockdown Drill will take place on tomorrow, June, 2, 2016, at 10:40 a.m.
