Message from Principal-Mr. Padgett
At Pierce Middle School our most important goal is to increase student achievement and to provide students with academic opportunities and advantages.~By providing more access to curriculum and support for students, we have seen an increasing number of students meeting the Florida Standards goals and District EOC requirements.~
To assist with student growth we will also continue with our ELP services and Saturday Enrichment programs to provide support and interventions for all students.~ The ELP services will be provided several services for students, including a Mentoring support program, tutorials, study time, and enrichment activities.~
We are also launching new elective courses this year.~ In addition, to our current AVID program which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination.~ It is a nationwide program that provides the support necessary to help students gain entrance to a four-year university. We will offer the program to this year’s six graders through the wheel.~ If you are interested, please contact me.
Throughout the year, there are several things you can do to help us guide your students toward ultimate success.~
We will continue to offer access to Edsby so that parents can~monitor their students’ progress frequently.~ We can work together to remediate an academic problem when it arises.~ If you have not registered for Edsby, we can help at Open House, or you can www. sdhc.edsby.com for directions.
Attend important school events, such as Open House, PSTA, and SAC committee meetings.~ We will always send out information through school website and use our automated calling system to keep you informed.
Please ensure that your child is at school every day ready to learn.~ There is a direct correlation between attendance and success.~
Encourage your student to seek help within our Guidance Department, and remember~all of our teachers are also available at various times to provide your student with one on one help.
Communicate with us when you have a question or need.~ Our counselors, teachers, and administrators are here to help whenever possible.
In closing, our goal at Pierce Middle School is to sustain academic growth.~ We will continue to work to improve our instructional program until all students achieve proficiency in every subject.~ I feel privileged to be principal at Pierce Middle, and I am available to help you.~ Please feel free to contact me whenever the need arises.~
We are having a great year!~
