I am extremely excited about the 2016 – 2017 school year. We have made several changes that will benefit our students.
First, the faculty has been working on a new vision for our campus. We wanted it to be something that we truly believe in and something that our student would buy into. Our new vision is: TODAY WE LEARN…. TOMORROW WE LEAD….
Also, we have started a new reading initiative based on Lexile scores. By focusing on this life-long skill, we hope to improve the lives of our students.The data tells us that the better students read and comprehend, the better they will perform on any standardized test that is put before them. Whether it is the ACT / SAT or the STAAR, our students will perform better as a result of this initiative.
Another change is that we have move to a 9 week grading period instead of the 6 week grading period we have done in the past. At the end of the 9 weeks, our students will take a comprehensive test over what they have studied. We will not be giving Benchmark tests this year.
Here is what I believe. We have the best faculty and the best kids around. Together, we will make a difference. Please contact me if I can ever be of service or if you just have a question.
