Here are a few snapshots of our building to welcome our students this new school year:
(please forgive the quality...I forgot my camera at home so I used my iPhone instead)
Every student in our school spent the first 2 weeks in Art class creating a graduation portrait of themselves and writing a paragraph about what they plan to do after they graduate.
Each grade level has a data board outside of their classroom to track student success and to make the information available for students, parents, and administrators to access. It really motivates the kids to do better because it shows the pre-tests and the post-tests.
Our theme this year is Halls Ferry University, as you can see. We are encouraging our students to set goals, think about their personal skills and talents, and push them to do their very best. All of our students here at school spent weeks 2-3 working on pennants for the University or College they plan to attend after High School. You can see those in the above photos. Our school shows spirit, goals, uniformity, and provides a welcoming environment for students and their families. In fact, not to brag, but we had over 300 people attend our curriculum night!
