I want to thank you and your student(s) for being a part of Tooele Jr. High School’s community.  We have a great school, one with a staff that is working hard to increase teaching and learning for students.  Tooele Jr. High School is a great place to be, and once again, I invite you to visit us and come be a volunteer!  We need you in our school!

  SAGE PRESENTATIONS will be held at 4:00 P.M., 5:00 P.M., 6:00 P.M., and 7:00 P.M. in the school library.  A copy of each student’s SAGE Report will be in the student’s portfolio as presented in the student’s led conference.  We encourage all parents to attend the conferences.
December 8 – 16 – Winter Benchmarks - District Assessments in Math, Language Arts, and Science – Every Student will be assessed during the Benchmarks.  The assessments will help prepare our students for the spring SAGE Assessment. 
The 2014 District Fall Benchmark Assessments in Math and Language Arts have been analyzed by the entire staff at Tooele Jr. High School.   Teachers with their teams have identified key strategies and concepts needed to increase proficiency levels for all students in Math and Language Arts.  If you wish the results of your student’s benchmark results, please contact the school.
No Science District Benchmark was given this fall, however, the Science department is also identifying key strategies and concepts to increase proficiency levels for all students.
As you will see from the table below, we have work to do.  We are committed to making a difference in the learning of each student in our school.  The teachers and counselors have identified every student and where that student is in his/her proficiency level.  There are expectations for students, just as there are expectations for the entire staff in our school.  We have made a commitment to increase the proficiency levels of all students.  With that commitment, our work has begun and we hope to share it with you as we move through the year. 
It is important for your student to be in school every day.  Learning takes place each day, so when a student misses a day or even a period, he/she may fall behind.  I have asked teachers to teach every minute in every period and every day.  There is not time for “free time.”  As well, I have asked the students to come to school every day ready to work in every class with their materials needed to be successful.
We have excellent teachers, counselors and staff at our school.  We have the best students in the District and I am glad to be a part of their learning journey.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.  My email is tlinares@tooeleschools.org or call at 833-1921.
