What We Teach and Why We Teach It
 
 
Our Mission Statement
Through the Falcon Creek Middle School community, students will achieve academic excellence and demonstrate responsible citizenship in a safe, supportive learning environment for young adolescents.  Within this framework, the following occurs:
  •  Students learn, refine, and expand basic skills and develop decision-making, problem-solving, and communication skills
  • Students work independently and interdependently to become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and contributing citizens
  • Students, teachers, and parents work together as a community  to ensure a productive, safe, and secure school experience
  • Teachers develop and implement learning experiences that prepare students for challenging roles in the 21st Century
 
In addition to instilling these values and behaviors, we must also equip our students with the habits of mind that are critical for being ready to meet the challenges of college and career.  The middle years present the largest span of growth for intellectual, physical, psychological, social, moral, and ethical development.  Mindful of this, the educational research has never been clearer or more evident.  Being on target for college and the workforce by the eighth grade, clearly aims students toward a positive future.  If students are not on target at this point, the impact may be irreversible.  Good work and study habits, consistently completing homework, orderly conduct, following school rules and guidelines, and forming positive relationships with faculty and staff are behaviors that will have a direct impact on either academic difficulty or academic success.
 
Educators at Falcon Creek Middle School teach the fundamentals of academic excellence through rigorous course work.  Students receive a broad and thorough knowledge of reading, writing, math, science, history, and geography.  These are the essential building blocks students will need for further education and in the world of work.  Students will also learn about the performing arts, visual arts, media/information literacy, robotics, engineering and design, forensic science, computer foundations, foreign language, health and physical education.  Within this framework, our Electives Program provides a strong focus on both exploration of the Arts and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
 
Throughout the school year, parents have immediate access to critical information regarding their students’ progress.  Our on-line communication tools have been developed for you to monitor CCSD curriculum and Common Core State Standards, grade level benchmarks, class assignments, class assessments, quarterly grades, and grade point averages.  These on-line tools, COLE 3.0 and PowerSchool, are easily accessed through a user name and password.  Please see our website video, under the mycherrycreek.org link, for more information on how to utilize these valuable tools.
