DMS Enrichment Schedule

November 10, 2015

 

Dear Davis Middle School Parents:

For a few years now, we have been contemplating the benefit of changing our school schedule in order to allow “enrichment time” - helping students at their personal learning level in math and reading. Recent test scores have prompted us to take the leap. This letter is to give you some information about some upcoming changes to our Davis Middle School schedule.

We have done extensive research to create a schedule that will allow time for our staff to work more at each student’s personal level while still maintaining as much integrity as possible to our original middle school schedule. Included in this letter, you will find the proposed schedule.  As you can see, the schedule has a few changes – mainly that homeroom has been moved from the beginning of the day to after 6th period and that all classes have been shortened by 4 minutes.  This allows for every class to be 40 minutes long – including enrichment time – for every student. No classes have been eliminated from the schedule.

It is our wish to institute this change with a “trial run.” Our first day of trying out this schedule will be on Monday, November 16, 2015. Our hope is to identify any problems or issues, make any necessary changes, and have another day with this new schedule on Thursday, November 19, 2015. If all goes well, we will launch this new schedule starting Monday, November 23, 2015. 

Once this schedule is established on a daily basis, enrichment time will be offered every day.  Math will be the focus on “A” days and English/Language Arts will be the focus on “B” days.  One of the most exciting things about this schedule change is that every student will be helped and/or challenged at their individual learning level, every day!  

We understand that there may be questions or concerns about this change. We welcome any input you may have. In addition, if you would like to volunteer to help students during this enrichment time in reading or math, please call our office at 789-8096.

 

Sincerely,

Jim Harrell
