From the Superintendent's Desk

  • Khan Academy is CONTAGIOUS!!!

    Posted by Raymond Jackson at 3/27/2017

    What started as an 8th Grade monthly contest has spread faster than the FLU!

    Thank goodness... it's much more fun and rewarding, also!

    Contests were held for the February to March time period for 6th, 7th and 8th graders in Coach Ball's, Mrs. Farmer's and Mrs. Wiist's classes as well as Tiger Tutorial groups and Math Enrichment sections.

    We are SO proud of our student progress and enthusiasm! Points only count for grade level material and are date ranged for each contest period, so each student has the same chance each month to earn new points for that contest period.

    Here are our WINNERS - March

    Coach Ball's 6th grade winner is Emily Richardson with 22,282 points.

    Mrs. Farmer's 6th Grade winner is Kassidy Walters with an IMPRESSIVE 87,625 points! The 7th Grade winner for Mrs. Farmer's classes is Sarahi Flores with another outstanding point total of 76,684 points.

    Mrs. Wiist's 7th Grade Tiger Tutorial winner is Alexis Plata with 25,482 points. The 8th grade winner this month was Kali Randal with 8,782 points.

    Please keep encouraging these kids to continue with their progress on Khan Academy. Remember that Khan Academy is an adaptive online program that is completely self-paced. It adapts to each student's aptitude as they advance through each grade level concept. Students can even move ahead to their next grade level when their current goal is reached. Khan Academy is available as an app on most smartphones and tablets, as well as online availability through any computer or laptop connected to the internet. Students can work on it at home or at school. Stay tuned... for next month's WINNERS!

  • Month #4 Khan Academy “Points” Contest

    Posted by Raymond Jackson at 2/15/2017

    Mrs. Wiist’s 8th Grade math classes are proud to announce the winner of our Month #4 Khan Academy “Points” Contest. Quinnon Gardner finished the contest, which ran from Jan 9th to February 8th, with a total of 11,677 points and 108 minutes of active problem-solving time. Congratulations, Quinnon!!!

    Q Gardner

    Each month, students compete for the $10.00 monthly prize by completing 8th grade math questions on their Khan Academy site. Students can work on Khan Academy before or after school, after classroom lessons are completed, during Tiger Tutorials or even at home with any Internet connection. The site is also available through an app for most smart phones and tablets. The point totals are filtered for each month, so previously earned points are not included in the winning tabulation.

    As students progress through the 8th grade concepts, they earn points, badges, and new avatars by correctly answering questions and watching the associated math videos available for each 8th Grade math concept.

    Khan Academy is a free, online learning site that is donation and supporter funded. Students who have an account can practice math concepts at any grade level from Kindergarten (Early Math) through 8th by grade level and High School and College level math by course (Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, SAT, GMAT, MCAT, etc.). Students can even search for specific math concepts to practice. Khan Academy is an amazing practice tool for students to fill any conceptual gaps, practice difficult topics, or even get ahead in the curriculum. Khan Academy is completely self paced and adaptive to each student’s strengths and weaknesses. Stay tuned for next month’s winner (February 9-March 8) and please help encourage Mrs. Wiist’s students to EARN THOSE POINTS!
