WELCOME FROM YOUR PASSIONATE PRINCIPAL
Greetings Parents Guardians and Community Members,
Happy New Year!!! The third quarter of school begins next week, and our teachers and students are working extremely hard to meet the school improvement goals by engaging in rigorous classroom activities and assessments. As we continue to prepare for the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA). I encourage you to view the assessment dates posted on our school’s website and newsletter.
There are resources available for parents to monitor the academic progress of their children. Parents can utilize Pinnacle to check grades, assignments and attendance. Currently, we are encouraging all students to utilize iReady to prepare for the upcoming assessments. In fact, students took the iReady midyear Reading assessment on December 7-8 and will take the mid-year Math test on January 11-12. Students who score well will be invited to our iReady Movie Night on Friday, January 15th!
Also, we will be starting in-school and after-school tutoring in February. If you have any concerns about student support, please contact the school or attend our next School Advisory Council online meeting at 6 P.M. on the second Tuesday (January 12th and February 9th). Just go to our website www.browardschools.com/markham and scroll to click on the SAC link.
If you have additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call our main office at 754-322-6950. I am more than happy to assist you!
Shedrick Dukes, Ed.S. Principal
