Fairgrieve reaches school-wide goals


Students at Fairgrieve Elementary School have worked hard throughout the first marking period to surpass school-wide math, behavior and attendance goals.
Ariana Suhr, Fairgrieve’s School-Home Liaison, shared the 10-week update during a recent Morning Express program at the school where she lauded the students for their accomplishments.
Throughout the 2016-2017 school year, the school-wide attendance goal is for 90 percent of students to attend school 90 percent of the time. Students in grades kindergarten through six were right on target for that.
The behavior goal is for 90 percent of the student body to have one major referral or none; that percentage is now 98.
Suhr said the Math and English Language Arts goals are based on Star testing data from students in grades second through sixth. The math goal is for 80 percent of students to be on a Tier 1 Level, and thus far 83 percent of students have met that target.
Students remain diligent in their efforts to meet the school-wide ELA goal of 80 percent of students to be on a Tier 1 Level.
While the school’s overall goal is to become a top school in the region, Suhr first encouraged all Fairgrieve students to achieve the status of top elementary school in the Fulton City School District.
That can be accomplished, she said, if all students work toward improving their own reading, math, attendance and behavior goals.
