RtI Reminders - Darden

Just a reminder that work samples are to be uploaded for students on your RTI caseload on a weekly basis. I understand that you all are extremely busy, however, we need this data to assign our students to the proper tiers for support. If you are in need of another tutorial for uploading documents, please let me know. I will be happy to assist in any way I can. Thank you to those teachers who have been uploading work samples and documenting interventions in the student folders.

Shout outs to Ms. Montooth, Ms. Ward, Dr. Van de Water, Ms. Knight, Ms. Ross, Mr. Boone, Ms. Mills, Ms. Steffen, Ms. Griffith and Mr. Patel for uploading some samples and documenting behaviors and interventions!

Thank you in advance to everyone else. I know you all will find the time in your busy schedules to get these samples uploaded. Have a great day! You're all awesome!!

International Skills Diploma Seal

The International Skills Diploma Seal is awarded to graduating high school students who complete an international education curriculum and engage in extracurricular activities and experiences that foster the achievement of global competencies. It is a signal to employers and higher education institutions that a student is prepared to participate in the global economy.

  • At least three credits in the same world language and/or ESOL
  • At least four credits in courses determined to have an international focus, such as international economics, world/non-US history, world geography, etc.
  • At least four extracurricular activities and experiences with global themes and/or in global contexts (e.g., exchange programs, international and language clubs, travel abroad)
  • Twenty hours of community service involving a global/cross-cultural public service project
  • Capstone presentation on the knowledge gained in the courses and activities listed above

Interested students should complete and return the ISDS application to the Main Office by Friday, April 14.

The National English Honor Society students will be conducting a Books for Africa drive the week of April 17-21. Please let me know if you're willing to have a student come into your class during the week of April 10 to explain the drive, what's needed, and leave a collection box in your classroom. I'me raised the money to ship 2,000 pounds of books, so we're really hoping to have a successful collection!

*Students donating books will be asked to put a slip of paper with their name on it into each book. At the end of the drive, one name will be drawn and that student will get a $50 gift card to Chick Fil A!

First, I would like to highlight Hailey Crosby terrific performance. As a freshman, she placed 4 th in the golf tournament with 30 other golfers. And congratulation also goes out to Aujenay Easley, who played her best match. She was the only golfer in her group that qualified to continue playing the remaining 9 holes.
