SUMMER READING CHALLENGE

Our school signed up to participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free online reading program that invites children to log their reading minutes to help set a new world record for summer reading.  The goal this year for schools around the world is to break last year's reading world record of 176,438,473 minutes!  Your child has already received his/her username and password.  Click here for more info.

 

 

TENMARKS SUMMER MATH PROGRAM

Research shows that summer learning loss in Math is an issue that impacts all students, with students losing an average of 2-3 months of math comprehension every summer.  TenMarks offers families a proven, scalable, online summer math program to reverse the summer learning loss and help students build a strong foundation in core math skills.  For more information see the TenMarks flyer and parent letter.

 

 

2014 - 2015 COURSE SELECTION CARDS

On May 22, 2014, all 6th & 7th grade students will receive their course selection cards for the 2014 - 2015 school year.  Parents should review the course card with their child and make selections carefully.  Course cards must be returned by May 28, 2014 and must have a parents signature.

 PROPOSED TIME CHANGE FOR THE 2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR

The Transportation Management Team has recommended that we delay the proposed bell time changes until the 2015 - 2016 school year allowing more planning and prep time for all stakeholders.  This approach will minimize risk and make the transition to the new bell times schedule as smooth as possible.

 INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL

ADOPTION PROCESS

Each year, the Florida Department of Education adopts Instructional Materials within content(s) or other areas of classroom instruction for the upcoming five year window.  In 2013 - 2014, instructional materials for 6-12 Mathematics and other 6-12 English Language Arts are being adopted.

The Florida Department of Education will open the online 2013 - 2014 Adoption Portal between January 15th and January 24th for the general public to review and comment on the instructional materials submitted for state adoption.  To access and review the materials, interested parties should email a request to the online Adoption Portal at the following email address, imstaff@fldoe.org.

 

Middle School Civics
4/10/12

The State Board of Education adopted new K-12 Social Studies Standards in 2008 called the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS).  These standards, which must be implemented beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, are aligned with the instructional materials adoption and implementation of new K-12 social studies textbooks.  In 2010, the State Legislature passed the Justice Sandra Day O’Connor Civics Education Act: HB 105 which has been written into the 2011 Florida Statute Title XLVIII Education Code.  The Statute can be found at www.myflorida.com.  This law requires middle school students to take a Civics course and earn a passing score on an end-of -course Civics exam.  Beginning in 2012-2013, a yearlong Civics course will replace the current Geography course.  Geography standards are embedded within the Civics course as well as in the other middle school social studies courses.  A field test will be administered to select middle schools throughout the state in 2012-2013 and beginning in 2013-2014, seventh grade students will be required to take a Civics end-of course exam that will count for 30% of their final grade.  In 2014-2015, students will be required to earn a passing score on the exam in order to receive course credit and be promoted to high school.  Please note:  Students entering sixth grade in 2012-2013 will be the first group of students affected by this new legislation.
