Today, 1st graders at AES celebrated the 120th day of school in rockin' style. Common Core Standards requires first graders to be able to count to 120. As a result of this transition from 100 (which was our standard prior to CC) to 120, first grade decided to celebrate the 120th day instead of the 100th day. We chose to do a rock star theme and we are ROCKIN IT TO THE 120TH DAY!!!
The Boosterthon Fun Run kicked off yesterday with a fun Pep Rally and we are super excited about this year’s program. The Boosterthon Fun Run program involves all students in a fun, team building, fitness event while helping our school raise much-needed funds. The central focus of this year’s character program is COMMUNITY. This year’s character theme is ROCK’N TOWN LIVE, and the Boosterthon Team will take students on a fun-filled journey teaching them the importance of building community with this fun, music festival theme.
Here’s how you can help:
The School District of Clay County (SDCC) has held AdvancED’s most prestigious Accredited status since becoming a fully accredited school district in 2010. District Accreditation recognizes that increasing student achievement involves more than improving instruction. It is a result of how well all the parts of the education system – the District, school, and classroom – work together to meet the needs of students.To earn this distinction, the District and all of its schools must follow the AdvancED accreditation process by:
1. Meeting the five AdvancED Standards.
Each standard has multiple indicators that must be evaluated in order to determine if each standard is met.
2. Engaging in a continuous process of improvement.
3. Demonstrating quality assurance through internal and external reviews.
The District will conduct an extensive internal review in order to self-evaluate the extent to which it is meeting the standards. An External Review Team will visit the district in March 2015 to assess how well the District and its stakeholders are working together to meet the AdvancED’s high standards.
