We have recently received our preliminary TAKS scores for 5th grade and 8th grade. These grades take portions of their TAKS earlier than other grades because these grades receive up to three opportunities to pass their TAKS tests in reading and math. The reason for the three chances is that promotion to the next grade level in grades 5 and 8 is dependent on students passing the math and reading portion of the TAKS. Students that do not pass the first time are provided intense, accelerated instruction to focus on the areas of need.
The preliminary scores are as follows:
5th grade math – 86%
5th grade reading – 86%
8th grade math – 91%
8th grade reading – 97%
Students that pass the second administration of the math and reading portions are counted as passing in the overall percent; so, these numbers will increase after the second administration of the test.
A reminder that the Bulldog baseball team will be playing against Wills Point tonight at 6:30 (weather permitting). The game will be played in Canton.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
