Launch is a program that is designed to reward students for doing their part academically in the classroom while still providing the opportunities for students who need it to get academic support from their teachers.
Students will attend their four academic classes during the first six weeks of school.
On October 10th when the 1st six weeks grades come out any student who has fallen below an 80 in a class will be required to attend a 25 minute academic support session for that class from 8:00-8:25 am.
Academic support sessions should be purposeful and may include reviewing work or material, preparing for tests, scaffolding new material, filling in holes or missing concepts, breaking material down into more manageable chunks, or helping students understand how to improve their organization or study habits.
Academic support sessions should not be used to complete busy work, do last night’s homework, catch up on sleep or gossip, as a free period, help the teacher make their daily copies, or used as a BSD (Before School Detention).
Students looking for a social environment should report to the cafeteria where they can hang out and talk with friends as well as access the school wi-fi. Cell phone use will be permitted in this area during this time.
Students looking for a quiet reading or work place should report to the Media Center no later than 8:00 am.
Students looking for a physical activity can report to the gym where we will once again conduct team intramurals focusing on five on five soccer and basketball. Students must report to this location no later than 8:00 am.
We hope to be able to continue to offer our students the opportunity to work with the outside community agencies we have established partnerships with during the Launch time rather than pulling them out of instructional time later in the day.
I want to thank our incredible School Improvement Team for their leadership in crafting this new program and taking the time to better balance the needs of our students, the challenges of implementation, and the wishes of the faculty into a manageable plan.
