Pass the Class

The sixth and seventh grade math teachers have collaborated to help support our students struggling in math. They have started a program called “Pass the Class”. Sessions are held in the morning, during lunch, and in the afternoons (when no after school meetings are scheduled – calendars are given to the students). During these sessions, students are given the opportunity to make up missed assignments, redo poor grades, and retake tests/quizzes. Mrs. Phillips is providing guidance to help students improve. As the work is made up and test grades improved, the information is forwarded to the student’s math teacher for adjustments to grades. Contact Ms. Phillips for February's schedule of sessions, and help support the efforts of our math department by encouraging our sixth and seventh grade students to attend!

Assessment Season

The Florida Standards Assessments are just around the corner! We will be administering the paper-based Writing portion of the ELA assessments to grades 4-7 on March 1, 2016 and the computer-based Writing portion to grades 8-10 on March 9, 2016. Our English department is working with students to make sure they have had practice with the appropriate paper-based or computer-based items. Please assist them by reminding students that they may prepare for the assessment by reviewing information found at the link that follows.
