U OF O SAIL PROGRAM

SUMMER ACADEMY TO INSPIRE LEARNING

What’s SAIL all about?
SAIL is an innovative pipeline program that helps local eighth
through twelfth graders prepare for college.
SAIL offers free one-week summer camps, where students
learn about various subjects from distinguished University
of Oregon faculty members through fun social and interactive
activities. Each summer, returning students choose a new
academic subject. SAIL camps include sessions on the
college admissions process, scholarship availability, and
the financial aid process.
During the school year, SAIL offers mentoring—administered
by UO college students—to eligible students in local high
schools who are navigating the college admissions process.

Peachjar is here!

Our District is partnering with an electronic flyer information system called Peachjar.  We at TMS will be using this to help share information instead of the old traditional newsletter.  The flyers are specifically designed to work well with the modern smart phone or computer when opening email.  Parents who have provided emails to us that are in Synergy have just started receiving these flyers.

You can see our most recent flyers (shared by us and also the District approved flyers) by clicking on the menu link that says PEACHJAR Eflyers.  After you get to this page – click on the big orange button.  This will show you all flyers that have gone out to Parents so far.

To learn more about this, you can visit our District website at the below link:

District TAG Testing – October 14th

On Saturday, October 14, 2017, Springfield Public Schools will hold their district wide Fall  TAG Testing at Ridgeview Elementary School. The TAG test assesses whether or not your child is at the 97%ile or above in the areas of Reading, Math, or Intellectual giftedness. The 97%ile means that if your child was in a line of 100 students, they would know more than the first 97 students in line. These children are at the top of their class, and typically above most students at their entire grade level at school.  If you feel your child may fit into this category, please talk to your child’s teacher and your school’s TAG contact  to refer your child for the fall testing. After you refer them for testing, you will receive a packet from your school with a parent questionnaire and more information about times of testing for your individual child.
 
If your child is already qualified as TAG, and you feel that your child may need to be accelerated a grade level, you would also speak to your child’s teacher and the TAG contact to refer your child for acceleration. The testing for acceleration will take place Saturday, October 14, 2017, for the above grade level test in Reading, Math, Writing, Science, Reference & Research and/or Social Studies. After testing, we will meet as a team with your school to discuss the next steps and fill out the Iowa Acceleration Scale.
 
Questions?  Contact your child’s school TAG Contact
TMS TAG Contact: Brandy Selby, brandy.selby@springfield.k12.or.us
Phone Number: 541-744-6368
