Perry Township Schools has elected to take advantage of the fall and spring intersession time to provide opportunities for students to either review specific curricular material or participate in enrichment programs.
During that first week of spring break, students are invited to attend instructional programs that reinforce skills previously presented, provide test preparation and delve into subject areas not explored during the traditional school year.
This year the instructional opportunities will be offered during the week of March 23. Elementary classes will be held from 7:30-11:30 a.m. at Winchester Village and Burkhart. Open spaces are filling up quickly as more than 275 pupils have already signed up. Transportation and a quick breakfast will be provided. The same dress code and expectations for good behavior continue on whenever school is in session.
We are offering an intervention program that identifies third-graders who are struggling with reading. In addition, level 4 English learners will attend the intersession. The instruction will address their weaker English domains while also providing content grade level support that will improve achievement on the next round of ISTEP. Fifth-graders will undertake project-based learning opportunities.
Five-hundred students in Grades 6-12 are scheduled to participate in the intersession from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Sixth-graders will focus on improving their math and English skills while being introduced to college and career readiness.
Middle schoolers will receive either math or English instruction with a focus on language acquisition and ISTEP+ prep.
High schoolers may receive intensive instruction in either Algebra I or English 10. The added remediation will assist students as they prepare for the End-of-Course exams in those subjects.
Other high schoolers will use the intersession for enrichment and to prepare for the SAT and ACT.
All children 18 and under are welcome to participate in Baxter YMCA’s meal program during spring break. Breakfast and lunch will be served from 7:30-8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., respectively. We are grateful for our community partnerships.
Perry Township Schools … strong schools reflect a strong community.
