8th Grade Information

Red Rose, Growing

                    A Volunteer is a person who remembers to do the thing to make other people happy, who takes the loneliness out of the alone by talking to them, who is concerned when others are unconcerned, who has the courage to be a prophet and to say the things that have to be said for the good of all.

Please remember when visiting or volunteering at Coyle FOR ANY REASON.  You must FIRST sign in at the front office to advise personnel of your presence in the building and obtain a Vistor's or Volunteers Badge.  Recent media attention to this issue reminds us that we need to take every precaution when it comes to the safety and welfare of our students and staff. 
 
              Volunteers...Our School is not complete without YOU!
The faculty and PTA of Coyle Middle School are very busy planning activities and events for all our students to benefit from and enjoy.  There will be a number of opportunities to volunteer your time.  Whenever a call comes for help, we hope you will be there.

News from The State Board of Education
 
The State Board of Education is serious about education.  The Board has adopted policies that require students to pass the TAKS test in order to be promoted to the next grade.  Students who fail to meet expectations on TAKS in reading and math will be required to participate in many types of interventions, incuding summer school.  The new policies go into effect with the current 6th grade student's at Coyle.  Any 6th grader who does not pass the TAKS test in reading and math will be required to attend GISD summer school this year.  In order to graduate from  high school, all Texas students must pas the TAKS test in English, Science, Math, and History, which are administered in the 11th grade.  To be certian that all sutdents are successful on the TAKS, students participate in a series of practice test throughout the year.  These test are designed to let teachers and parents monitor student progress.  If the assessments indicate that students need extra help, we want to be certain that those students take advantage of the extra tutoring programs that we have available at Coyle before and after school.
