We made the Courier Cover!

Catholic Courier photographer, Jeff Witherow, came to Blue and Gold Day where he took some wonderful pictures of this wonderful event. One even made the cover of August's Courier. Two other photos also appeared in this edition on page 19.

Also be sure to read the story on page 16 that talks about how participation in our school class plays helps build confidence in students.

Common Core Standards

The Common Core State Standards define the rigorous skills and knowledge in English Language Arts and Mathematics that need to be effectively taught and learned for students to be ready to succeed academically in credit-bearing, college-entry courses and in workforce training programs.

These standards have been developed to be:

•Fewer, clearer, and higher, to best drive effective policy and practice;

•Aligned with college and work expectations, so that all students are prepared for success upon graduating from high school;

•Inclusive of rigorous content and applications of knowledge through higher-order skills, so that all students are prepared for the 21st century;

•Internationally benchmarked, so that all students are prepared for succeeding in our global economy and society; and

•Research and evidence-based.
