I am very pleased and proud to announce that the State School Report Cards have improved for both the elementary grades (3-5) and the middle grades (6-8). The hard work of so many people, the school staff, the students, parents, and community supporters is finally being recognized.
The elementary State Report Card moved from an absolute value of "below average" to "average" and the student academic improvement value from "below average" to "average".
The middle school State Report Card remained at "below average". However, the academic improvement rating moved from "average" to "excellent".
If you would like a more detailed explanation of the State Report Card, please contact the school for an appointment.
Every 2nd Tuesday of the month McColl School works in partnership with Family Literacy to provide Parenting Workshops. The Family Literacy Program's mission is to empower individuals to achieve greater self sufficiency through family education and literacy instruction. During these workshops, parents learn to:
*Eliminate power struggles
*Discipline without yelling
*Be kind and firm
*Respond effectively vs. react emotionally
*Create an encouraging family
*Feel calmer and enjoy being a parent
*Develop mutual respect
*Minimize hassles, tantrums and tears
