WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!
2016-2017 DISTRICT BASEBALL CHAMPIONS
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF THE PLAYERS, COACHES, MANAGERS, AND PARENTS. WHAT A TERRIFIC WIN OVER THE WAHLQUIST EAGLES!!
It is that time of year when the suns stays out a little bit more and students start to get excited for spring. It is also time to prepare for testing season. We will start to have our CTE skills test, AP testing, and SAGE testing. It is imperative that students attend during this time. Their physical condition makes such a huge difference with their mental awareness. Please help us by encouraging them to get plenty of rest and to eat sound nutritional meals. A good breakfast is a great start to a day.
We have implemented an afterschool math tutoring program. These tutoring sessions are provided by our math teachers. Each afternoon a different teacher is available until 4:00 PM. The schedule is located on our website. This is a great way for your student to get the extra help that they need. We have also started our Homework Haven in our science pod. Students can receive help from a designated teacher Monday thru Thursday. We have been able to support these programs with Trustland and USTAR funding. Please see all of the great things that we are able to accomplish because of this funding. You can see the entire plan by clicking on the Funding Summary under Community Council on our website. Under Plan, click on Land Trust Plan 2015-2016. Math has been our point of emphasis, as decided by our community council team. We will continue to improve opportunities for our students with our Trustland plans. With the help of these programs we were able to reduce the number of students leaving Sand Ridge credit deficient from 27 in 2014-2015 to 13 in 2015-2016. We were able to see SAGE scores increase in all three tested areas. Sand Ridge had the greatest increase in growth out of all of the junior highs in Weber School District. We are so proud of our students’ accomplishments.
