Okay, so it's not really MY school - but it is my kid's school. I'm sending out kudos and goodness to PG Jr High this morning.
Yesterday I had the privilege of sitting in on presentations from different departments at the Jr. High.
Originally these presentations were arranged so that the teachers could receive their first-ever bonus money from the state.
Needless to say -- no more money
But the departments went ahead and prepared presentations to deliver to a small group of parents explaining how they are educating our children and in what ways.
What a GREAT opportunity this was!
PGJHS is mastering the art of teaching. They are using student data to plan and compensate for areas of concern. There are steps in place to help at risk students and to reward students who are more advanced.
Take a minute to visit the school's website. The stakeholder's report is great! And while not everything is perfect, I feel great about the steps being made to quickly fix areas of concern.
I have great respect for the administration and several teachers at the school who are trying so hard for my child and everyone else's! Thanks!!!
