2/22/18 Mrs. Sheppard's School news broadcast to the students and faculty.
Dear Students and Parents,
On behalf of the entire faculty, administration, and staff of Triton Regional High School, I would like to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year. We look forward to helping all of our students develop the goals and work ethic necessary to reach their full potential.
The 2017-18 year will undoubtedly bring about new challenges for us and our students. In addition to teaching the curriculum, we will continue our goal to educate the whole child.
- We will lead students to make good academic and social decisions that will positively impact their future.
- We will create a culture…
- Where they are engaged, challenged, and expected to be involved in their learning.
- Where they feel safe both physically and emotionally.
- Where they feel supported by our faculty and staff and turnkey that support to their friends and peers.
- Where they take pride in the school, themselves and their environment.
- Where they learn how to live a healthy lifestyle, physically and emotionally.
When we educate the whole child we guarantee them the best opportunity for success after they graduate. I want to thank you in advance for supporting us as we guide your children to grow into mature, responsible young adults.
Now that all of our students have Chromebooks, our District Supervisor, Mrs. Baratta, has condensed the spring 2018 PARCC assessments to a three-day period. Yes, that’s right! The entire school will be tested in three days and they will be half-days for the students. May 15th, 16th, and 17th will be our testing days. As for our students’ performance on the PARCC, we are improving but there is still good work that needs to be done.
- Algebra I: State 43% met or exceeded – Triton 18% met or exceeded
- Algebra II: State 27% met or exceeded – Triton 16% met or exceeded
- Geometry: State 30% met or exceeded – Triton 21% met or exceeded
- English 9: State 51% met or exceeded – Triton 35% met or exceeded
- English 10: State 45% met or exceeded – Triton 33% met or exceeded
- English 11: State 37% met or exceeded – Triton 14% met or exceeded
We will continue to work with our students to help them understand the importance of this assessment and improve their areas of skill deficit. Our Math and Language Arts District Supervisors, Mrs. Sireci and Mrs. Geyer will continue to work with our sending schools to improve curriculum alignment and ensure that the students come to high school with the appropriate skill set.
We look forward to a terrific school year. Remember that the effectiveness of the high school experience is the result of a team effort between students, teachers, parents/guardians, and their involvement in school. Take pride in being a MUSTANG!!!!!
