Congratulations Mr. McManus!
 
He was selected as our Chiles Middle School Teacher of the Year and has recently received word that he is one of the Cou

The Art Department Needs Your Help! Please start saving your Box Tops for Education! Please help Ms. Ruckel raise funds for art projects for her students. Please turn them into the front office!  This is an easy way to help support our school! You will be amazed at how many items have the Box Tops for Education! Our goal is to make at least $100 in box tops before the Spring deadline, February 27th.

Florida Standards Assessment Information for Families
Attached you will find the PowerPoint presented to parents at Hagerty High School on October 14th FSA Parent Night Information. For additional information please see attached Florida Standards and Florida Standards Assessments

New Calculator Guidelines for FSA- With the new FSA testing taking place this year, 7th and 8th grade students will be allowed to use specific models of scientific calculators during the test. LCMS is recommending the TI-30XA calculator for the testing as this is one of the approved calculators for the test, and provides a good combination of functionality and ease of use. Students and parents may wish to purchase their own calculator in order to have time for additional practice using it prior to testing. Any 7th or 8th grade student who owns this specific calculator will be permitted to use their own, as opposed to the school provided one, when they take the FSA math test. The TI-30XA is available from many retailers for under $20. 

New Student Insurance
Please see the attachment regarding student insurance.
