Principal’s Report to the Board of Education
April 26, 2016
State AIR Testing is over halfway completed. Our technology is working great, staff members have embraced their role in proctoring, and students are exceeding expectations.
Our ACT scores are skyrocketing! With the implementation of College Readiness I and II, we are seeing direct benefits for students. We had students raise their original scores by 5 points in less than one year. The tracking being done by Miss Huffman assigns an estimated score based on practice tests. Those scores were within 1 point of actual scores! This ultimately opens college access even wider and provides much needed scholarship money for families.
Spring sports are turning the final corner of their seasons. Tournament schedules will be announced via social media and text alerts.
Thanks for Jonathon Patterson, we have new rules for who gets to sit at our outdoor picnic tables during lunch! He gave a stellar presentation to me about making a few changes.
April 14 at 6:30: 21st Annual Wood County ESC Recognition Banquet at Penta Career Center. Tyler Stimmel chose Mr. Pack. Kylie Hiser selected Miss Lauer.
May 4: Safety Awareness Assembly for juniors and seniors in the morning. SRO Slane is preparing the entire event, which will take place while Grades 9-10 are testing. We are having the Ohio State Patrol, Wood County Presecutor’s Office, and North Baltimore Police Chief Baer coming to speak about making good choices and the consequences of making poor choices. We will also offer a simulator for students to experience that makes them experience impaired driving.
