The MERIT Program (Meeting Expectations Realizing Individual Talent) rewards students for striving to be their best. Students can earn MERIT points for excellence in Athletics, behavior, attendance, academics, and participation. As students earn these points, they move through the following levels: Citizen, Councilperson, Mayor, Governor, Representative, Senator, Vice President, and President. With each rank received, students are rewarded with privileges and activities commensurate to their current ranking.
Approximately 50 grade 8 students from our school will be selected to participate. NAEP provides a common measure of student achievement across the country and is used to inform education policies and practices. Schools and students have an important role in ensuring that NAEP provides accurate results. Our goal is 100 percent participation in this important assessment, and we know that we can count on you to help us reach it.
Attached is the school calendar for the 2016-17 school year. Please note that the middle school does NOT do early outs. We have late starts on every other Monday as does the high school. Also, we do not do conferences the first week of October.
