New playground equipment being installed. As you drive by the Middle School campus, you will notice new swings sets being put up for the entire Middle School. The district maintenance staff will be putting up four swing sets, two soccer goals, two basketball goals, and multiple equipment for student strengthening and endurance. The Mansfield School Board approved the improvments at the September Board meeting and students are growing more excited each day.
Mrs. Kandis Howard and Mrs. Renea Bryan have been approved for donorschose grants and will be purchasing student equipment and materials for student use. Projects and project based learning are areas the Middle School is promoting and these funds will help allow students to work more with hands out activities and instruction. Mrs. Bryan and Mrs. Howard are both staff members that have been approved for the grants in the past.
The Middle School will have several new updates this school year. The Mansfield School Board agreed to equipped the middle school with magnetic locking doors. This will prevent individuals from entering the building, without first being allowed to enter by the office. Visitors will have to buzz the office via a camera monitor before being allowed to enter the facilities. The Board also approved other safety devices to be added at the campus in order to keep students safe. The Middle School campus will also have a fully functioning cardio room for student use. The cardio room is located adjacent to the Middle School office and students will be able to utilize the facilities throghout the day. The School Board also approved the purchase to new playground equipment for the Middle School.
The Middle School finished the ACT Aspire testing the previous school year. The Middle School campus was tested in Reading, Writing, English, Science, and Math in grades 5-8. The Middle School scored above the National average on 16 of the 20 tested categories. Mr. Bryan’s 8th grade Middle School math scores were nearly 30% above the national average. Mrs. Howard's 6th grade science scores were 17% above the national average as well. The state reading scores overall were lower than expected and the Department of Education continuing to discuss why the state scores were lower.
The Middle School will be working toward student led conferences this year. The Middle School will be moving away from the traditional parent teacher conferences and focusing on more student centered in order to increase student achievement. Those are just a few of the changes for the 16-17 school year. Parents please remember to sign up for your HAC account. You may set up yoru account to receive updates when your students makes a grade below a specified perimeter that you set.
We look forward to having a tremendous year and we appreciate your time, diligence, and dedication to your child’s success.
