January Update

Big picture

Welcome Back!

I hope all the Stockton families were able to enjoy time together during the holiday season! Second semester is underway and students and teachers are back to work in the classroom. Senior parents, it is hard to believe this is your son/daughter's last semester at SHS! We are looking forward to another great semester, just like the first one.

Winter MAP Testing

All freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will take part in Reading and Math MAP testing in the upcoming weeks. The Reading test is scheduled for January 15th and the Math for January 17th. If your child is absent on one of these days, he/she will make the test up at a later date.

Senior NAEP Testing

The senior class has been selected to participate in NAEP Testing and a letter to parents was sent home before the break. Seniors will complete their testing on Thursday, January 31st in the areas of math, reading, and science. The total time it will take for the assessments will be about 120 minutes. There is no need for your child to study, as this information is only collected for statistical purposes. If you have any questions, please refer to the parent letter or call the high school office.

Congratulations to our Athletes

Congratulations to the girls' basketball team for winning the Warkins Holiday tournament in Erie over the winter break!

Also, congratulations to the Pantherhawk Wrestling team on taking 2nd place at the Abe's Rumble Tournament. There were 55 teams there, so quite an accomplishment!

SAT Review Begins

On Monday, January 14th, the freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will begin activities to prepare and review for the SAT exam. Students will participate in Khan Academy activities twice per week during homeroom, school-wide SAT review, weekly vocabulary activities, and juniors will partake in SAT practice exams. I encourage all juniors to also access their Khan Academy account at home to help review for the SAT exam on April 9th.
