This Week's Building Level and Departmental Update

MIS Student set SMART Goals
Peg Bryan, MIS Principal


           MIS students are being deliberate in their desire to increase their learning.  One new sixth grade student who moved in during second quarter found himself unprepared for the rigorous curriculum at MIS.  His math teacher told him that she was going to pull him into her RTI class so that she could work with him on division and other skills he was lacking.  He was very upset (almost angry) that he could not divide-that he had never learned this skill.  This student is now celebrating that he can now divide with great success.  He is very proud of his accomplishment.  One day when he and his mother were in the store and he saw his math teacher, he started telling his mother all about RTI and how he had learned how to divide and as a result, how to use divisibility rules, determine prime factorization of numbers, determine the greatest common factor, etc. all because he learned during RTI how to divide.
