CHS Test Scores Improved!!
CHS Principal Cory Slagle has just taken a whipped cream pie in the face from Xandria Huckans. Xandria had her name drawn from the list of CHS students who had passed their Algebra I End of Instruction (EOI) tests back in May 2005. Principal Slagle had challenged the student to improve over their 2004 scores with an offer to let them dye his hair blond and take a pie in the face for each subject improved. The students met the challenge and Mr. Slagle had to "pay up" Sept. 20th at a CHS assembly.
Kristen Slocum had the chance to represent the Biology I students. Addie Marsh gave the pie in the face for the passing U.S. History students.
Ginny Ramsey provided the pie for the English II students passing their 2005 EOI exams as she had her name drawn for the 4th subject improved. Cory Slagle congratulated the students on their hard work and improved scores as Assistant Principal Ken Chronister saw what he may face in 1 year.
The Improvement:
EOI Test Subjects
Percentage of CHS Student Passing in 2004
Percentage of CHS Student Passing in 2005
Algebra I
39% (state ave 32%)
Biology I
66% (state ave 49%)
U.S. History
English II
Before the pie tosses Principal Slagle had his hair died blonde as part of the challenge Tuesday. This is planned as an annual event to encourage continued improvement. Assistant Principal Chronister will be the pie target next year.
Note: The early info I received from the Class of 1995 said they were meeting this weekend ... but I heard rumor today they are meeting next weekend?
