Lost Mountain Middle School is excited to bring our students the “Eagle Block” that will serve students in remediation, acceleration, clubs, and fun activities. The Eagle Block will start in January and run on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 3rd and 4th period. This gives all students the opportunity to take part in tutoring, make-up tests and school work, clubs, and special interest classes during the school day.
Students will have the opportunity to choose their Eagle Block class from a class catalog designed by our teachers, unless their teacher has assigned a student to a specific tutorial or make-up session. Some examples of classes that may be offered are: Study hall, Book club, Robotics, Coding, Science Club, Jr. BETA, drawing, and organizational skills. The list will change every week and will allow our students to explore new classes and interests. Students will record the sessions they will attend each week in their agendas.
Students that need to re-test or make up work will be assigned to a teacher that leads that session. We will prioritize days for specific curriculum each week.
ALL students will be present in a session. Students without an agenda, roaming the hallway, or refusing to attend a session will be taken to ISS for the Eagle Block session that day.
Our hope is this block of time will allow the majority of our clubs and activities to be run during the day to limit the amount of time students are required to come early to school. This should allow more access for our students to become part of a group and try new interests.
If your student needs to purchase a new LMMS student agenda, please provide $10 and a written note requesting a new agenda to the bookkeeper, Mrs. Liedberg.
