Second Quarter Wrap-Up,

Students here at Keys Academy-Culpeper ended the Fall semester of the school year with a bang! Many of our high school students were able to complete core classes which are a component of their graduation requirements. In addition to completing the classes, our high school students that were eligible also participated in the Fall 2017 SOL testing administration.

The focus for our middle and elementary school students has been on continuing to focus forward on their courses in order to be prepared for their testing administration that will occur later in the Spring semester.

Throughout the second quarter of school, KEYS staff focused a lot of their efforts on introducing KEY #3 “CAN YOU HEAR WHERE I AM?” and KEY #4 “FOCUS FORWARD.” The CAN YOU HEAR WHERE I AM key assists students in being able to let other people know how they are experiencing their life and what supports they may need along the way to reach their ultimate state of well-being.

Knowing how a student is experiencing their life or world can be very beneficial when it comes to helping that student connect with others and communicate their needs.

The FOCUS FORWARD key has been helpful for our students as they learn to create a power picture for their lives and goals. Focusing forward and visualizing their goals and dreams can help students push through difficult/undesired situations during the school day.
