Block Scheduling- Yes, No or Maybe So? Reply

Each year, on the second week of school, new students are bewildered with their schedule. No history class on Thursday but nearly and hour and a half of it on Friday! It sounded complicated with too many things to memorize. In reality, it is very simple.

Students and teachers at many schools have adapted to the ways of block scheduling, but both may not know the benefits.

There are different types of block scheduling for schools. Some schools alternate classes where they meet with different teachers every day. Others do a trimester switch off where students take two to three classes for 60 days in order to earn credits.

Here at Stacey, block scheduling takes place every Thursday and Friday. On Thursday, students are expected to attend their four odd period classes and on Friday attend their four even period classes.

The way the classes are set up on these two days is ingenious. During the first three days of the week, the classes are regular for the students and teachers.

MathCon 1

On February 25, Mrs. Doyle’s Math 7A classes competed in MathCon, a nationwide math competition where students took a 40 problem, 40 minute timed test on grade level appropriate problems.

The classes were competing with 45,000 students from over 330 schools in 40 states, but the 7th graders only competed against other 7th graders.

On the test, competitors faced grade level questions, patterns and problem solving, but as Mrs. Doyle said, the problems were “stepping it up a notch”.

She stated “I am very proud of my students”. Good job to our mathematicians!

Lexi Vanhorn, who was on fire, scored two times! Reese Rosas did great and scored off a free kick. Jocelynn Timmer and Leandra Gimenez, amazing athletes, each scored one time. More…
