Congratulations to our own Mrs. Amy Barnes

Amy Barnes
 Mrs. Amy Barnes was selected as one of the next Alexander Shunnarah Teachers of the Month! Hundreds of nominations nationwide are received each month and the competition was fierce, but after a thorough review of all applicants, the panel of judges selected Mrs. Barnes as the very worthy recipient of Alexander Shunnarah’s next Teacher of the Month for the 2021-2022 school year. Only 5 applicants are selected each month from nominations all across the United States. Mrs. Barnes was nominated by two of her students at Sweet Water High School, Halle Miller and Carson Jordan. Congratulations, Mrs. Barnes!

Alabama Literacy Act At Home Plan

The Alabama Literacy Act was created to help improve reading outcomes to ensure students are reading on grade level by the end of third grade. Students must demonstrate sufficient foundational reading skills to read and comprehend grade-level texts in English language arts, science, social studies, and even math.

Our district has developed an At Home Plan to support parents with activities they can do at home to improve reading proficiency. Increasing proficiency requires strong partnerships between schools and families. This is one way we are attempting to provide seamless support for our students. Paper copies of this plan will be sent home in the coming week to all students in grades one through three that are at-risk and have a Student Reading Improvement Plan. Parents, please take some time to peruse the plan and identify a few activities that you can do daily with your student. The work will pay off. If you have any questions, you may contact your child's teacher.
