Physical fitness testing results have been released. Our students performed well. Our staff implemented physical fitness training days on Tuesdays and Thursday and the results are positive. 100% of our students met the abdominal strength testing goal and 90% met the trunk extension. At a 60% mark, aerobic capacity, upper body strength and body composition are areas of emphasis for 2015-2016.
Eat healthy and exercise!
Our 1st CAASSP testing results gave us some great feedback on student performance on the new standardized testing. Like the majority of the state, many of our students struggled with the new state standards and computerized testing. Because of the increased amount of reading and writing, our students will really need to focus energy in these areas. This last year we piloted the Houghton Mifflin GO MATH! Program in Mathematics in grade 6-8 which is where we saw our best results with both the 7th and 8th grades meeting state standards above the state average.
We have purchased the GO MATH program for all grades to better prepare all of our students moving forward.
Teachers and staff have put forward time and effort to meet the new goals and will continue to work hard to help Shiloh student succeed!
