Keystone Exams Keystone Exams are given to any student who is taking a Full Year Algebra 1 Course. (Algebra 1 Part 1 does not take it) Keystone Exam scores in 8th Grade count towards the High School AYP numbers. Failure to pass the Algebra 1 Keystone Exam in 8th Grade will result in a remediation class requirement in next year’s schedule at NHS. Given the fast pace of the Algebra 1 Course and the ramifications of the Keystone Exam, if you see your child is struggling, do not hesitate to contact me to discuss possible options. Last year Sandburg had 96% of the Algebra I students pass the Keystone Exam.

We must continue to work even harder and get that number over 90%!
PSSA Thank you for an outstanding effort on last years PSSA. Sandburg was 85% Proficient/Advanced. We must continue to work even harder and get that number over 90%!

Opportunity Period Rules & Expectations
plan in advance and arrive to class with ALL materials needed bring enough work to do to keep yourself occupied for the ENTIRE period if you need to see another teacher (for any reason) ask that teacher to sign a pass for you in advance……before OP begins work quietly work independently always bring a book to read

Effective Ways to Use Your Time
Work on any work that the math or reading specialist assigned read a book organize notebook review notes create flashcards re-read what was read in class write a brief summary of what you read complete homework complete late work study for tests/quizzes create quiz questions with answers write spelling words 5x each
