The All Together Lunch Period All students have lunch together in a 50 minute lunch period and are free to move about supervised areas aside from the cafeteria. Students use the extra time for make up work, remediation, and to attend club meetings.
Flexibility – for students • 1. The flexible nature of the All Together Lunch period has enabled CHS to offer student support programs such as SMART Lunch and RTI2. • 2. SMART Lunch identifies struggling students and places them in a lab setting to remediate missed learning before they fail the class.
RTI2 • 1. RTI2 is a state mandated program designed to identify students who have large gaps in their learning in multiple areas and increases their class time in these deficient areas in an effort to keep all students all pace to graduate. • 2. The use of 1 combined lunch time has created additional time in classes to permit CHS to implement the program seamlessly.
For Teachers • 1. The “All Together Lunch” has given teachers time to meet in Professional Learning Communities to review student achievement data and share strategies designed to increase student success.
Established 2007-2008 • 1. The “All Together Lunch” has been a key part of CHS for over 7 years. • 2. Numerous other high schools have visited CHS to observe the lunch period and have or are in the process of implementing their own version of the All Together Lunch period.
For Parents • 1. Please encourage your student to make positive use of the All Together Lunch period for academic, socialization, and taking care of necessary tasks such as paying fees, pictures, and meeting with teachers.
