Here is an overview of the key activities we worked on in relation to teaching and learning this month.
Monday’s: Most of our time was once again used for department collaboration time. However, we will use this upcoming Monday (5/21) to prepare for the Smarter Balance (SBAC) testing with teachers. We will meet in our School Improvement Teams one final time on Monday, June 4th. Again, we truly appreciate the time to be able to work together.
Other information: Our athletic programs had a good spring and we are sending golfers, track competitors, and our Soccer and Softball teams to the state championships. This is in addition to our students who competed at state in SkillsUSA and Floral competitions.
State Testing: We are beginning the state testing cycle here this month. We have the Math testing on Wednesday, May 30th, and Thursday, May 31st. We then test again in English/Language Arts (ELA) on Wednesday, June 5th, and Thursday, June 6th. The June 5th date coincides with our 3rd annual Most Valuable Parent (MVP) breakfast for our seniors and their parents. There are also Juniors testing in ELA, Math, and Science in the midst of the sophomore testing too.
Graduation: The current plan is to hold graduation outside. However, if the weather is inclement like it was last year, we will go inside. Each graduate will receive 7 tickets for the inside graduation ceremony. We believe we have an awesome plan to live stream the event on our YouTube channel with new equipment that was purchased. Thanks to Steve Rippl and William Weaver for all of their help in making this happen.
