We would like to inform you that Monroe Middle, Morton Magnet Middle,
McMillan Magnet Middle and Hale Magnet Middle Schools will be adding
6th grade students into their buildings for the 2016-2017 school year.
Therefore, Boyd Elementary School will serve grades K-5th starting the
2016-17 school year.
There are many benefits for our students who are in a 6th – 8th grade middle school:
Students have increased student achievement in core academic subjects
that include: math, reading/language arts, science, and social studies.
Teachers are departmentalized, which allows them to specialize in deep
understanding of one content area. As a result, many middle school
teachers earn master’s degrees in the subjects they teach.
* Students are on a team of approximately 120-140 students at the same grade level with the same 5 to 6 core team teachers.
Teaming at middle school allows teachers to have daily team meetings
and common plan time that provides teachers time for developing
individualized instructional strategies to support students, to balance
homework assignments and to provide curricular enhancements.
Students and families are provided continuity during these middle school
years, which increases engagement in the school and community.
Teachers lead advisory programs that are designed to create a structure
to help students get to know one another, meet their needs, work
effectively and build positive relationships with peers and adults that
extend into classes and become schoolwide.
* Middle school staff
members are provided professional development that increases their
understanding of the developmental needs of this age group (10-14 year
olds). With this understanding, the teachers recognize the importance
of applying effective strategies to engage students in their classrooms
as well as various clubs and activities after school.
invited to attend the Grade Level Configuration Meeting at your
student’s Middle School. The meeting will allow families to meet the
Middle School Principal, see the school and begin to get acquainted with
your child’s future school. Please call us at Boyd (402) 572-8928 if
you would benefit from clarification regarding which Middle School your
child attends based upon your home address. We would be happy to help.
