New Sixth Grade Schedule

Starting in 2017-18, our sixth grade schedule is changing to include more time in the core classes as well as What I Need (WIN) time. Lengthening our core classes will allow more instructional time in English, math, science, and social studies. This will be beneficial as we introduce a new core literacy program, StudySync, and focus on more rigorous assessments in conjunction with our Glencoe math program. WIN time is designed to provide supports, enrichment, and/or interventions based on each student’s individual needs. All students will receive “what they need” during this period, scheduled for seventh hour every day. Another benefit of the new schedule is that the sixth grade lunch period will move back in the day until 10:48 a.m. (a much more reasonable time to eat lunch than the current 10:19). The new sixth grade schedule is listed below:

AIMSWeb Data for Mason Middle School

Students at Mason Middle School take AIMSWeb Assessments during the fall, winter, and spring of each school year during AIMSWeb Benchmarking Periods.  These assessments (screeners) are used to provide intervention or support to those students that may need a boost in the areas of reading fluency, general reading ability, mathematics computation, and mathematics concepts/applications.  Additionally, these assessments are used to help identify students that may benefit from enrichment or advanced placement classes.  

Click on the links below to view the school data for the R-CBM (Reading - Curriculum Based Measurement - Fluency), MAZE (Reading - General Reading Ability), M-COMP (Mathematics - Computation), and M-CAP (Mathematics - Concepts & Applications).  Mason Middle School strives to have 80% or more of their students reaching benchmark (Tier 1 - Green) on all four of these assessments at each benchmarking period.
