As we enter the home stretch of the 2016-17 school year at KIPP: Tech Valley Charter School, I wanted to take a moment to encourage our Kippsters to FINISH STRONG! Each of you has been working exceptionally hard over the past 9 plus months. The finish line is now in sight. It is hard to believe that next month marks the end of the 5th interval and the close of yet another academic year at KTV. With only a month or so to go, I encourage you to step up your game to power through to the finish. Remember what we said from day one back in August, "It is not about where you come from, but it is about where you are going...It is not about how you start, but about how you finish."
Over the past ten weeks, students in Choices Reading class have shown a ton of grit and improvement. I am exceptionally proud of some specific students for putting in the work during interval four. Their diligence, determination, and effort has resulted in some serious gains in their reading average. Please celebrate the awesome improvements of the following Kippsters listed below. As their English teacher leader, I am very proud of each of them.
Le Moyne Dolphins: Jasmyn G. (+8%), Maiasia T. (+9%), Evelyne J. (+10%), Devadre P. (+10%), & TyRiek L. (+13%)
St. Rose Golden Knights: Hafsa A. (+9%), Zhariyah S. (+12%), Elijah M. (+13%), Markel D. (+14%)
Oswego Lakers: Jada M. (+14%), Tamel G. (+19%), Ciara W. (+20%)
Again, congratulations and as the great Micheal Jordan once said, "I have always believed, that when you put in the work, results will come." (MJ#23)
