• Lancer Academy

     
    McNeel was awarded a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant beginning the 2017-2018 school year. The grant has funded our Lancer Academy (before and after school) program and all of its activities. With the generosity of this grant the Lancer Academy is offered at NO COST for families! First Priority will be given to those students who are below grade level according to most recent MAP scores in Reading and Math and by teacher recommendation. 
     
     
    Our goal is to provide that extra academic enrichment piece to students in need. Our focus has been on service learning, literacy and mathematics extensions, environmental literacy, nutritional education, fine arts and regular physical activity. Each of these programs help build skills in STEAM. 
     
     
     Lancer Academy is a hands on learning program that provides extra support for students in need. After evaluating data from 2017 winter MAPS  scores to 2018 spring MAPS scores the Data shows regular attendees have increased, 61.4% in reading and 74.3% in math! Regular attendees have also increased their day school attendance by 40%.
     
    If you are interested in your student participating in this program please contact Mrs. Najera or the Main Office.
     
    McNeel recibió una Galardonado del 21st Century Centro de Aprender de la Comunidad a partir del año escolar 2017-2018. La subvención ha financiado nuestro programa Lancer Academy (antes y después de la escuela) y todas sus actividades. ¡Con la generosidad de esta subvención, la Academia Lancer se ofrece SIN CARGO PARA las familias! La primera prioridad se le dará a aquellos estudiantes que están por debajo del nivel de grado de acuerdo con los puntajes más recientes de MAP en Lectura y Matemáticas y por recomendación del maestro.

    Nuestro objetivo es proporcionar esa pieza extra de enriquecimiento académico a los estudiantes necesitados. Nuestro enfoque ha sido el aprendizaje de servicios, la alfabetización y la extensión de las matemáticas, la alfabetización ambiental, la educación nutricional, las bellas artes y la actividad física regular. Cada uno de estos programas ayuda a desarrollar habilidades en STEAM.

    Lancer Academy es un programa de aprendizaje práctico que proporciona apoyo adicional para los estudiantes necesitados. Después de evaluar los datos de los puntajes MAPS de invierno de 2017 hasta los puntajes MAPS de primavera de 2018, los datos muestran que los asistentes regulares han aumentado, ¡el 61.4% en lectura y el 74.3% en matemáticas! Los alumnos de el programa CLC que asisten regularmente, también aumentaron su asistencia escolar diaria en 40%.
