Stout Introduces the Z.A.P Program!

It may seem obvious, but research has shown students who consistently complete their homework receive higher grades and score well on tests. I would also contend that these students experience a higher rate of self-confidence, and have a more enjoyable time at school. There are many reasons why a student does not complete or turn in their assignments. One excuse we would like to eliminate is the credence by students of “I’ll just take a zero.”

This school year Stout Middle School will be implementing a program called Z.A.P.  (Zeros Are not Permitted).Click on ZAP Program to get the full details

Summer Learning (Math) – Extended Due Date

Last week, student passwords were reset for the new school year. As a result, several students who were trying to complete summer math assignments were unable to access their Khan Academy accounts. Due to this situation, we are extending the due date for summer math assignments to September 7th.
