We would like to explain a new curricular program we have started to use in our district.  Each week essential standards are taught to our students.  Usually at the end of the week assessments will be given.  Based on the data, students will be placed into reteach or enrich groups. This can mean in 7 & 8 grades they could have a temporary schedule change.  Our goal is to have all students master the essential standards.  If your child comes home talking about being in the reteach group, it is okay.  This is to help support their learning.  Enrich groups are those students who have mastered the essential standard the first time.  This change will be a process of figuring out how it will work best for us at Anthem.  Our goal is to have all of our students being successful.  Your child’s teacher is working hard to implement this new program.  They are doing it because they care.  If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher or myself.
