We have a number of celebrations from the last couple of weeks. First of all, congratulations to Ms. Anita Ardi! Ms. Ardi is now an Excel Award Winner. The Excel Awards are awarded through the Granite Education Foundation, and any teacher or administrator in the district can be nominated. Assistant Superintendent Rick Anthony came to school yesterday along with Brent Severe and the rest of the board from the Granite Education Foundation to recognize Ms. Ardi. There were over 1,000 nominations in the district this year, and there are nine winners selected each year. This is a great honor for Ms. Ardi.
Churchill SRI Scores:
I would like to recognize the Language Arts teaches and all of our students for the great progress they are making in reading and reading comprehension. Students take the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) three times each year, and student improvement in reading and comprehension is evident through the scores. So far, students have completed the first two rounds of testing. Churchill is currently second in the district among junior highs with 77% of our students being proficient or above of the SRI. Our proficiency was at 70% on the beginning of the year assessment, so a 7% jump in just a couple of months is great progress. The seven percent jump tied within the district for largest jump from the first to second testing. Churchill students also ranked third in the district with an average Lexile Growth of 40. We are the only junior high school in the district to be to be in the top three in both overall score and growth. The students are making great progress. There is one more round of SRI testing before the school year is over, and I am excited to see how much more growth our students make.

The cafeteria hummed with holiday cheer as Kimberly Reale’s 8th grade FACS Exploration classes very successfully combined both their business savvy and cooking skills at the food truck extravaganza. The winner is the student with the most profit (revenue minus expenses). Stay tuned for the podium results! Students had to provide a business name, logo, slogan and food concepts. Lucky 7th graders received fake $$ to buy yummy Christmas drinks and sweets!
