  • Grant Survey
    As part of the 2016 MSAP project, we are asked to survey teachers, parents and students periodically.  Beginning March 11 through April 5, 2019, we would like for Rochelle School of the Arts teachers, parents and students complete the Gear Up MSAP Project survey. We need your input. Would you take a few minutes and complete this 10 question survey on our magnet school grant work?  These results will be used in our Annual Reporting to the US Department of Education. Thank you for your help!

  • Homework Help
    Students with parents who are involved in their education are more likely to earn higher grades, adapt well to school, and pass their classes. But is there a point when parents can be too involved—specifically, with homework? Consider these scenarios: Your child’s big science project is due tomorrow, but her schedule has been so busy lately that she hasn’t had time to finish it herself. You want her to get a good grade, so you end up doing most of the work for her. Your daughter’s entry for a school poetry competition seems pretty bad so far.  You suggest phrases that sound better. When the awards are announced, your daughter comes home and says, “We won!” Your son’s math homework packet is a big part of his grade, but he’s having trouble with a few of the concepts. You wonder if it’s okay to help him with some of the answers? If parents end up taking over homework tasks—as in the first two examples—involvement can quickly turn into interference. Check out this article for strategies to reasonably support your child as he or she tackles assignments.   Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)

  • Middle School Lunch Bunch
    Middle school students who would like to use their lunch time to read on a regular basis can sign up for our new Middle School Lunch Bunch.  Lunch Bunch will provide students a supervised, quiet space to eat lunch and read (and take AR tests). Middle school teachers will supervise these students in their classroom, while they eat lunch and read quietly.  These students should bring their books with them to the lunchroom, where the designated teacher will meet them.  Because Lunch Bunch is a privilege, students who abuse the privilege will be asked to leave.  Click here to sign up for Lunch Bunch.
