Dear Principal Fisher and Superintendent Ross,

Congratulations! Mansfield Middle has been recognized by the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas as a school that is Beating the Odds, because students demonstrated high growth on the ACT Aspire even though the school serves a population of students who participate in Free and Reduced Lunch! As you may know, the OEP creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards, and this year we are recognizing schools with high student growth. We think growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that your school is having on students.

In our Beating the Odds report to be released tomorrow, Mansfield Middle received the following awards:

Statewide "Beating the Odds" Overall Growth: Middle Level

Statewide "Beating the Odds" Math Growth: Middle Level

"Beating the Odds" Math Growth: Middle Level (Northwest Region)

We provide specific content-area badges for placement on your school’s website (attached), and a personalized paper award will be sent to the district later this school year.

Awards are based on the 2018 content growth score calculated by the Arkansas Department of Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2017 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. We recognize schools based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately. To learn more about how we determined the OEP award winners and to see the full list of award recipients, you can view the report here.

We congratulate you on this accomplishment and hope that you will share this good news with teachers, students, and others who contributed to your school’s success.

This year’s full list of OEP awards can be found here.

For updates and insights, follow our blog at www.officeforedpolicy.com, and to be added to our weekly updates and roundup of education news, send an email to oep@uark.edu with the subject line “Sign me up!”

Congratulations again on “Beating the Odds”!

 

Sincerely,

 

Sarah McKenzie, Ph.D.

Mansfield Middle School 5th Grade Students of the Month.

We would like to take a few minutes and recognize our 5th grade November & December students of the month.  Teachers nominated a male and female student for their hard work and positive attitude that they have displayed throughout this current school year.  Our two young men that have been selected as the 5th grade student of the month for November & December for many different reasons, Kanon Fisher & Charlie Collier are hard working students that are beginning to flourish at the middle school.  Both were chosen by their teachers for their great attitude and leadership skills they personify throughout the school day.  Chloe Beran and Chloe Whiley are the 5th Grade November & December female students of the month.  Both Chloes continues to work hard every day and set a good example for all of their peers to follow.  Both ladies have transitioned well from the Elementary to the Middle School this year. 

 

We are extremely proud to have such great students at Mansfield Middle School and we are even more encouraged by the presence their parents are making in their life.  Each student continues to lead their peers by positive examples and we will be saddened by the day these two young people move to the high school.  Congratulations Kanon, Chloe B., Charlie, and Chloe W.

Mansfield Middle School Students of the Month.

 

We would like to take a few minutes and recognize our 8th grade November students of the month.  Teachers nominated a male and female student for their hard work and positive attitude that they have displayed throughout this current school year.  Trenton Leroy has been selected as the 8th grade student of the month for November for many different reasons.  Clint is a positive leader and a student that is trusted by peers and teachers.  Alayna Swanger is our female student of the month.  Alayna continues to work hard at Mansfield Middle School, and has earned the respect of her teachers by her tireless effort and tremendous attitude.

We are extremely proud to have such great students at Mansfield Middle School and we are even more encouraged by the presence their parents are making in their life.  Each student continues to lead their peers by positive examples and we will be saddened by the day these two young people move to the high school.  Congratulations Trenton and Alayna.
