AHS Parents: We have had several questions about intervention this year during 8th period. This year, intervention is a true, purposeful intervention. Purposeful intervention means that the needs of the students are met based upon missing or weak skills or standards. It is not about bad grades or needing homework help. The intervention teachers at Acorn High School have put together pretests to determine missing or weak skill areas and are actively teaching those specific skills and standards to our students during 8th period. The benefits of this, seen on scores so far, have been great! We continue to see growth, which is always the goal! The teachers are working hard to fill in the gaps. However, many of you have asked about homework help for your students, and we understand that completely. Everyone needs help occasionally. Homework help is available before school from 7:45-8:00 AM or after school. Any of our teachers will be glad to help, but that is not the purpose of 8th period this year.

Deputy Gibbons, alongside his K-9 partner-Otto and Officer Harvey recently visited all Acorn Preschool classrooms during September-Community Helpers month. The preschoolers loved seeing the dog and how well he was behaved and obeyed his owner's commands!
