School of Rock
Congratulations to Mr. Monk and our School of Rock students who performed so well at recent performances!  You can check out their 2013 Performance or their 2014 Performance here.
Daily Math Skills
 

Students in grades K-8 are now receiving the critically acclaimed Daily Math Skills curriculum available through Beyond Textbooks.  Teachers implement daily 20 minute math fact lessons to improve math fluency (speed + accuracy) so that students are able to perform computational tasks as well as higher level skills while not getting bogged down on the "ABC's of math."  Implementing Daily Math Skills in other school districts has historically demonstrated immediate gains on math AIMS scores, specifically the number of students who exceed the standard.
