A Message from Mr. Licciardi

Dear REACH Community,

This week has surely come in as a close second on the "Special Week" scale to Graduation Week. This week our campus realized a plan that positioned two successful Open House events. See the images 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. See the updated calendar below.
  2. Check out the 2023-2024 school calendar by clicking here or scrolling down.

May this Spring Break be a blessed one for you and your families,

Pascal Licciardi

Mock Interview Experience

We used our advisory period to begin to discuss the importance of presenting oneself in a positive light during the interview process. A key part of the equation is a resume. We had an opportunity to begin the drafting process this week.

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.
