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!~
