Can You Spare a Roll?

tp.pngToilet paper is something most of us take for granted.  Could you spare a package for those who can't afford to buy this basic necessity?

The Team Leadership Xperience is a program of the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce that involves of 26 high school juniors.  We are collecting toilet paper to distribute to The Outback, the school district's food and clothing pantry.  We will also distribute to numerous local organizations.

Our goal is to collect over 11,000 rolls of toilet and build the world's largest toilet paper pyramid.  The toilet paper will then be donated to The Outback and other local organizations to distribute to needy families.

Be a part of this event.  Send a package (or more!) of toilet paper with your child to school.
Thanks for making a difference in our community.

McNair & Vandergriff Named High Performing Schools

Posted by Alan on February 18, 2011 8:34 AM | Filed in News | Comments (1)

home_right.pngThe National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA), a department of ACT, released its 2010 NCEA Higher Performing Schools List for Arkansas on its public website www.nc4ea.org this week. The list identifies NCEA Higher Performing Schools--those elementary, middle, and high schools that have consistently outperformed their peers that serve similar student populations--and recognizes their achievement in bringing more students to college and career readiness than expected. McNair Middle School and Vandergriff Elementary School were included on the 2010 list.

The 2010 Higher Performing List conveys a strong message to schools and districts across the nation that all students can achieve at high standards and school improvement is possible no matter the zip code.

"Making the list, and especially in all subjects, is a great achievement for these schools. With education reforms focused on higher standards and higher accountability measures such as the Common Core State Standards Initiative, these higher performing schools show us that all students can, and will, get there," says Efrain Mercado, Director of Outreach at NCEA. "Our Arkansas educators are doing great work, but if we want every student to graduate with the skills to be successful beyond high school, there's still more work to do. The schools on this list show us that Arkansas is making college and career readiness a priority." Notably, for the spring 2010 Arkansas Augmented Benchmark Examinations (ABE) testing, fewer than 2%, or 17 of the state's public schools, were higher performing in all grades and tested subjects.

Schools on the list are identified by one of two measures: academic growth of students at the school and/or absolute achievement of students at the school using the ABE's advanced performance level. The measures exemplify not only those schools that are able to improve their student performance from previous years but also those schools that push their students beyond the proficient level--a level that is typically too low to accurately measure student preparedness for postsecondary learning. NCEA's identification of Higher Performing Schools is selective and comprises approximately 8% of public schools in the state.

NCEA (formerly known as Just for the Kids) began identifying Higher Performing Schools in Arkansas in 2000 and continues to annually release these lists as well as College and Career Readiness Charts for every public school in the state.

Fayar_TV_moving.pngFayar.tv has moved to channel 217 on Cox Cable TV as part of a reorganization of the Cox channel lineup. To continue receiving Fayetteville government, education and community access channels in their new locations on the channel lineup, customers will now need to have a digital set top box. Cox will offer a two-year free box rental option, and customers will have until February 28, 2011 to request one from the local Cox Digital Store

The move allows the Fayetteville Public Schools to broadcast 24 hours per day on Cox, instead of the 1 pm to 7 pm time slot currently available on channel 14. Looks for lots of new programming on channel 217 from FPS!

FHS vs. Rogers Games Moved

Posted by Alan on February 5, 2011 1:04 PM | (Not Filed) | Comments (2)

The sites of the Rogers vs. FHS basketball games scheduled for this week have changed. On Tuesday, February 8, the game will take place at Fayetteville (jv boys & girls @ 4:30, varsity girls @ 6:00, varsity boys @ 7:30). The makeup game scheduled for Saturday, February 12 will now take place in Rogers (jv boys @ 4:30, varsity girls @ 6:00, varsity boys @ 7:30).

The change was needed to accommodate the scheduled blasting of rock as part of the construction at FHS. The blasting requires that the entire campus be vacated as a safety precaution, therefore no games can be played at FHS on the 12th.
