The Weekly Wrap-Up

REACH High School

March 27 - 31 (29th Edition)

A Message from Mr. Licciardi

Dear REACH Community,

Ready or not, April here we come. In anticipation of Easter, REACH High School will continue its annual tradition in partnership with Joy James. I look forward to sharing pictures with you in next week's edition.

Attendance truly matters on so many levels. Our message at REACH has been consistent since forever but I feel it is essential that I share it again as some students are close to having a TPM (Truancy Prevention Measure) filed leading to a required court appearance and possible fines. In addition, lack of seat time due to attendance will not grant you credit even if you have received a passing grade. You will need to take the class over again. I urge you to make it a point to attend school regularly. For some, it will prevent you from walking the stage in May.

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.
