From the Desk of Dr. Halley: MSIP, CSIP, APR Goals & Accomplishments

It is my hope that by sharing with you the State of Missouri’s history with Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP), Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP), that I can now reasonably explain our Annual Performance Report or APR. Annually, the board of education and administration discuss the APR. After APR scores of 75.4% and 77.9% in 2014 and 2015. The decision was made for our goals to become 85% for the 2016-2017 school year and 90% for 2017-2018 and remain above 90% thereafter. Putnam County R-I fell just short of our goal in 2016 as we only reached 82.1%. However, for 2017 we attained a 94.6% and followed a 93.3% in 2018. We have met our set goals for 2017, and 2018 school years. For MSIP 5, which is what guides the APR, we have five areas which our “performance” is measured. 1. . . .

Reptile Adventures

On March 20, 2019, the Zoology class and science club took a trip to Kirksville, where they visited the A.T. Still museum of osteopathy to learn about the origins of homeopathic medicine. After that, they visited the greenhouse at Truman State University, which contains a wide variety of tropical plants, cacti, and even hydroponic plants. Although this was fascinating, the highlight was by far, the visit to the herpetology department also at Truman. Students learned about a variety of snakes found in Missouri and about their importance to the ecosystem. They also got to interact with tortoises, skinks, and even legless lizards! If you are curious about these animals, don't hesitate to ask the students who went on the trip about them!

The pictures show students deciding which quadrilateral does not go with the others and then communicating the reason why. This same day, we did a two-minute frenzy listing everything we know about four special quadrilaterals and comparing our lists. There is a lot of information to remember regarding the six special quadrilaterals.  We hopefully will remember it all for the test this week.
