Focus Block Information
What is Focus?
A daily block to provide an opportunity for all students to grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
The goal of FOCUS is to increase student achievement, promote positive meaningful relationships with adults, peers and to develop social-emotional skills.
Focus take place at the beginning of each day, 7:40-8:12AM.
Students will select their Focus activities for Marking Period 1 beginning on Thursday, September 8. Students will be able to make a selection based on academic need or interest. In some cases of intervention and resources rooms, teachers will assign students based on need, data, and IEP requirements. We will change each marking period so if a student doesn’t get their first choice, they will have multiple opportunities. Please see a complete list of offerings at the conclusion of this email.

Help Room - Provide re-teaching, review to students for their current course, retesting opportunities
