Our Instructional Leadership Team worked with our faculty to hone in on an area of improvement for our school - perseverance in problem-solving. From there, we crafted our school's Instructional Focus - All Hartnett Middle School students will show growth in their problem-solving through increased motivation, resiliency, and perseverance. Growth will be measured through STAR and MCAS.
During the 2019-2020 school year, students chose their favorite student-friendly version of our Instructional Focus. We held an art contest for students to submit their artwork that includes the words and a visual that would become our new school logo. All students voted for their favorite design. The winning student design was turned into the graphic logo that you see on our left.
Chargers Come Fully Charged is our student-friendly version of our Instructional Focus.
During the 2019-2020 school year, as a faculty we decided and implemented an evidence-based practice in all content areas, ASE, to help students persevere in their writings in response to texts and prompts.
