High Success Rate

High Success Rate

Students at West Gate K-8 participated in SPARK testing to determine their level of digital literacy.  The focus of the analysis was on three major areas including: 1) Computing Fundamentals, 2) Key Applications, and 3) Living Online.

One hundred two students received certifications for global digital literacy during this initial phase of assessment — that’s a success rate of over 80%!  Ongoing support will be provided to enhance skills for other students as well.

WGK8 is proud of its students for setting the standard for technology success.

History Fair Projects Judged This Thursday

Two hundred history fair projects focused on this year’s theme of “Taking a Stand in History” will be judged by local dignitaries at IRSC’s Kight Center this Thursday (1-12-17).  Students from across the District have researched, analyzed, and interpreted information on the topic.  Working individually or in groups, they have submitted their findings and expressed their ideas in papers, exhibits, performances, documentaries, or websites.  Doors will open at 8 AM for a day-long vetting of entries in two divisions — junior (grades 6–8) and senior (grades 9–12).

 

According to Kate Ems, event organizer for St. Lucie Public Schools, the first- and second-place winners in each category and division of the District History Fair advance to the state contest in Tallahassee in May.  In addition, first- and second-place state winners in each category and division earn the right to represent Florida at the National History Day competition in College Park, Maryland, in June.
