After a long vacation and break from school, KIPPSTERS have come back this week and have been working exceptionally hard in ELA 5. I wanted to take a few minutes to recognize the most improved KIPPSTERS in ELA 5 over this past week. All of these reward recipients were recognized for their hard work. A huge shout out to the following teammates:
Representing the Le Moyne Dolphins:
-Kaylahna R. for her grit in her writing...She improved over 20 points on this interval's writing project by working so hard this week, earning one of the highest marks in grade 5.
-Surmar W. for his optimism with his writing...After many edits and revisions, as well as super grit and never giving up Surmar earned his highest writing grade at KTV!
Representing the St. Rose Golden Knights:
-JayShawn M. for his great improvement in his character and choices in ELA class this week. Jayshawn was super focused going deduction free in ELA 4 of 5 days and this focus helped him earn his in class assignment project grade of his KTV career!
Representing the Oneonta Flying Dragons:
-Azari T. for her tremendous grit in her writing. Azari showed the greatest improvement this week in her respective college with her writing and should be very proud of her score on the in class project!
Way to go KIPPSTERS!! I am so proud of each of these award winners. After all as we say at KIPP, "It is not about where you came from, but about where you are going!" Each of these students listed above are moving in the right direction and it is all because of their hard work, positive behavior, and focus. It makes me pleased to see so much improvement this week in ELA 5!
