Additional Course Descriptions

Trooper Time: Trooper Time is a 30 minute class all students will have on Friday mornings. It is basically a student’s “homeroom”. Classes are typically smaller, between 12-15 students, which allows teachers to connect with students on a more personal level. In Trooper Time, students will participate in our anti-bullying program. This is also where they will plan for conferences. When you come for Student-Led Conferences in October and March, it is your student’s Trooper Time teacher who will meet with you first. If you have any questions about anything going on a school, or are not sure which teacher to contact, your student’s Trooper Time teacher is a great person with whom to communicate.Academic Strategies: Academic Strategies is a regular 54 minute class students will have everyday. On Fridays, students will have time to check their grades online and email you, their parents, with an update on grades and any missing work. On Fridays, students will also learn skills such as organization and spend time learning about and practicing our Trooper PRIDE values.

Beginning a few weeks into the school year, students will be placed into a Monday – Thursday Academic Strategies class based on their academic needs. Students will receive extra practice in math, reading or writing, or be challenged through extension classes. These placements are based on testing done at the beginning of the year, as well as studnet performance from the previous year. You will receive more information about these placements during October conferences.
