Dear Parent or Guardian:
I am writing to tell you about an exciting educational program we are starting this year at West Blocton Middle School called Tiger Time. Tiger Time is designed to meet the individual needs of both struggling and advanced learners. Teachers will be utilizing standardized instruments and teacher evaluations to determine their appropriate group during Tiger Time.
Tiger Time will provide students with time to focus on specific educational skills they need to ensure future academic success. During this time, your child will have the opportunity to enhance basic skills, focus on individual standards to ensure mastery, and use problem solving and critical thinking while working in teams to advance their collaborative skills. We feel strongly that this opportunity will help students succeed in the future, both in school and in today’s work world.
Students will be assigned to the smallest classes possible, and they will earn a grade every 9 weeks for Tiger Time. Teachers will utilize a wide range of educational resources and programs to maximize student learning and growth.
You can support the Tiger Time by encouraging your child to do his/her best to achieve in this program. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about Tiger Time!
