Dear Cavaliers Families;
The second quarter is off to a great start. We are starting our student support programs, ensuring that every child has access to additional academic interventions during the school day as well as after school and on Saturdays. Program information will be communicated via parentlink, email and our school app.
Our upcoming SAC meetings are on November 4th, December 2nd and January 6th. Please visit the SAC section of our website to view the specific times and locations of this year's SAC/SAF dates.
New Renaissance Middle School is an authorized International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program School. The IB Learner Profile is the foundation of this world renown program. All students have 4 classes on alternating burgundy and gold days for a total of eight classes which encompass the required IB coursework; language and literature, individuals and societies, mathematics, science, language acquisition, visual arts, performing arts and physical education. This block schedule maximizes enrichment and remediation opportunities for students.
New Renaissance Middle School is a Verizon Innovative Learning School. Digital Promise provides students with a seventh generation iPad which includes unlimited monthly data. Teaching and learning is centered around the iPad. Prior to receiving an iPad, students need to complete a digital citizenship course, and parents the electronic consent forms. Student iPad checks take place monthly and iPads are collected from students prior to the end of the school year.
Safety and security of students and staff is priority #1 at New Renaissance Middle School. Broward County Public Schools requires that ALL students wear IDs at all times. Students will receive ID’s during the first week of school. Student consequences will be issued according to the Code of Student Conduct and Discipline Matrix to students not displaying / wearing their ID.
Children need healthy meals to learn. Universal free breakfast and lunch is available to all students. The percentage of students eligible for free or reduced cost meal benefits determines the Title I Funding we receive. Families are asked to please complete the on-line Multi-Child Application for Meal Benefits at www.myschoolapps.com.
On behalf of the faculty and staff at New Renaissance Middle School, we are commited to working with you and your child throughout the school year.
Mrs. Janet Giancarli, Principal
