Middle school athletics is built on the philosophy that all students will participate. There is NO CUTTING in the middle school program. Students will have a chance to practice and participate in the sport that they choose. Please note that teams are divided according to ability level (ABCD) and then those teams will compete against the schools teams of the same level. Playing time is determined through some district-established guidelines. All students will play in the games and are required to attend practice for that sport. However, playing time will not be exact for each game.

At the start of each sport there will be a mandatory student meeting. The students will be given important information regarding that sport. This will be for students and parents do not need to attend. Middle school athletics provide many great opportunities for children. We encourage you to discuss with your child the many possibilities that athletics provide. Here are just some of the key components you can discuss: the fundamentals, commitment, hard work, perseverance, team work, and having fun during middle school athletics. We look forward to your child participating in our middle school programs.

Welcome to Patrick Henry

Data Information

Achieving our mission, to educate and prepare each student to succeed in a changing world, hinges on our ability to continually improve the effectiveness of our schools. Multiple factors impact student achievement and serve as indicators of effective schools. This Data Profile Directory is prepared to provide parents, educators, and the community with a data profile of various school effectiveness indicators. The directory should be used as one source of data for identifying a school's present status, assessing overall student progress, and planning for continual school improvement.

 

Each year the South Dakota Department of Education (SD DOE) releases a report card showing the performance of schools across the state. The report card includes information about academic achievement, student attendance for grades K-8, the graduation rate for high schools, and professional staff qualifications. These criteria are used to determine the school’s performance index or SPI.

Although the federal and state governments require building and district-level accountability measures, the District closely monitors the individual progress of each student to ensure that each student is being prepared to succeed in a changing world. By reviewing their student’s quarterly report cards, attending Parent-Teacher Conferences in the fall and spring, and contacting teachers with questions or concerns parents will have the best picture of how their children are progressing.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, state assessments were not administered, and therefore data for student performance, student progress, and school environment are not available for the 2019-2020 school year.

Based upon South Dakota's waiver approved by the U.S. Department of Education, the overall score was not calculated for schools for the 2019-2020 report cards, and the school support status is based upon school performance results from the 2018-2019 academic year.

 

All schools in the District are submitting their School Improvement Plan to the Board for approval prior to submitting them to the State. The Plans, developed by a team of parents, community members, and staff, serve as a roadmap for future planning and professional development and measure student achievement.

Each school has a building leadership team that meets regularly throughout the year to guide the development, implementation, and evaluation of the School Improvement Plan. Building leadership teams divide the larger plan into smaller segments with the following focuses: staff roles, goals, meetings summary, data processes, priorities and strategies, and the professional development plan.

This document guides the work in order to meet the District’s mission, priority statements from the Strategic Plan, and the achievement goals set by the South Dakota Department of Education.
