Helpful Links for Students and Parents:
Kansas Career Pipeline http://www.kansascareerpipeline.org
This site allows students to access interest and skill inventories and find careers that correspond to the high interest and skill areas. Up to date information regarding college and post secondary opportunities in Kansas and other states are displayed with current and relevant information. Students in each grade will explore and research information about the 16 career clusters.
Students have taken the NWEA measures of academic progress in the areas of reading, language usage, mathematics, and science. Scores will be analyzed by the teaching staff to develop guided lessons, interventions and goals for students. Individual student reports will be available to parents during parent teacher conferences.
Lions Quest: www.lions-quest.org
Students in grades 6-8 will participate in the Lions Quest Social Emotional and Character Development curriculum one class period per week. "At the heart of this program is the belief that young people are resources who can make a positive difference in the world." Lions Quest will teach students to develop respect for themselves and others. Building self-confidence and building on strengths to set goals and remain healthy and drug-free are just a few of the principle components of the program.
