JCYMS Literacy Scholars have been recognized in APS this year for record growth in Reading Plus! Young Middle School received the award for top Reading Plus usage, lessons and words read in the entire district this year igniting a boost in reading throughout the entire district!
Please be reminded that right upon the students' return on Monday April 10th, students will be taking the GA Milestones Assessment in English and Writing on April 12th and 13th. We are advising that students take one hour each day of Spring Break to review the English GA Standards of Excellence with use of educational Youtube videos. Youtube and Teachertube is accessible daily via cell phone, tablets and computers. This practice will help refresh students on each English standard. Standards can be found on the Georgia DOE website or here at the Young Middle School website if students do not have a list of the standards. Thanks so much for taking charge of your student's education and continuing to support excellence. Have a safe and productive Spring Break!
Did you know that JCYMS was recognized as the #1 school in the district for Reading Plus? Please remember that there is no such thing as "No Homework". Students should be completing 2 lessons every day in Reading Plus. Parents can check to see if students are completing assignments by securing student's name and password from the student and logging on weekly to check the student's status.
If you have been at Young Middle School this year you have seen a great difference in the flow of transition, student uniform compliance, and behavior overall. Mr. Scott is a proven leader who has clearly communicated and supported the expectations set forth this year at Jean Childs Young Middle school. His "Know Your Role" Mantra asks that everyone be accountable.
