Ruckel Middle School, an A+ school for thirteen consecutive years, started off the school year with an Academic Pep Rally on August 28, 2014, to celebrate student success on last year’s FCAT.
“We like to start off the year thanking the students and teachers for working hard and doing well in school and on the FCAT last year,” said Paul Whiddon, Ruckel Middle School Principal. “We also like to promote, encourage, and challenge students to do even better this year. We have a new challenge this year with the AIR test.”
The students who had perfect scores on the FCAT were presented with certificates.
“We have 34 students that received certificates and that does not include last year’s eighth graders,” said Whiddon. “We were also honored today that Assistant Superintendent Marcus Chambers could attend. I know our teachers and students were honored to receive his recognition.”
“To be an A+ school for thirteen consecutive years is something that does not happen by accident,” said Chambers. “When you talk to Mr. Whiddon, it is not about being an A+ school, it is about the students; and it is about what our teachers are doing for each and every one of you to help you transition to high school and then one day college.”
Chambers went on to credit the students, teachers, administrators, and parents for Ruckel Middle School’s success.
“I cannot tell you how proud we are of Ruckel Middle School,” said Chambers. “Congratulations on being an A+ school.”
