Civics EOC Cut Scores PDF Print E-mail
Written by D. Turk   
Thursday, June 12 2014 08:57

Greetings, Chiefs!

Pinellas County Schools has released the cut scores for the 2013-14 Civics EOC. These scores will tell you the letter grade of the test, but not yet the achievement level (the usual 1-5 score, as on the FCAT). This will merely help you to see how your student did on the test, grade-wise.

The scores are in Focus (Portal) and are labeled "T_Score." The T_Score conversions are below:

  • 55-80 = A
  • 45-54 = B
  • 36-44 = C
  • 22-35 = D
  • 20-21 = F

Good Afternoon Osceola Familes,

This is our final call out for the school year!

Wednesday is an early release day. Students will leave at 2 pm.

Parents, don’t forget to pick up your child’s medication by June 4th.

Our 8th grade dance is 6 pm. until 8 pm. on Tuesday, June 3rd.

Parents, grades will be a little later this year because end of course exams figure into the students final grades. This is the case for all 7th grade taking civics, and 7th and 8th graders taking Algebra Honors and Geometry. Grades should be posted in Portal by June 13th. A letter is going home Monday to the students involved. Summer school begins June 9th. Letters were mailed home. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s counselor.

Looking ahead to next year: Parents of 6th graders moving on to 7th will need their shots updated. Please contact your doctor over the summer. As soon as you have the necessary shots, please bring in the record.

Please continue to save your box tops for education. They were used to buy things for our ever growing Chief Change store.

There are to be No Backpacks this coming week. Children may bring paper and a pen or pencil.

Allow me to take this time to thank all of you for a terrific year. I wish our 8th graders the best of luck as they venture off to high school.

Good evening Osceola Middle School families.

This is Chad Eiben, assistant principal, with a few updates.

I want to first start with an update on Ms. Arsenault. She is doing fantastic. She enjoys being back at work and talking with students and staff. She is still working a limited schedule but hopes to soon be working fulltime again. We are so happy to have her back.

I want to thank the PTSA for an amazing year. Your help and support of OMS has been greatly appreciated. Our board members are amazing people and I want to thank you for everything you have done to help OMS be a great school. This past Friday night our PTSA brought home several awards from the County Council PTA Awards Banquet, including Support Staff of the Year Award, Community Service Award, Legislative Advocacy Award, and Administrator of the Year Award. Thank you OMS PTSA for an amazing job.

The end of the school year is fast approaching and we have lots of events. Please pay close attention so you don’t miss out on anything.

This Monday, May 19th sixth and seventh graders who ordered yearbooks will receive them during 7th period. The yearbooks look great. Please be sure to write your name in your yearbook in several places. Also, do not let your yearbook out of your sight in order to prevent it from getting lost or stolen.

This Wednesday, May 21st the remaining yearbooks will be on sale before school. The sale starts at 8AM at the school store near the front gate. The yearbooks are $35, cash only. These books are on a first come, first served basis.

Also on Wednesday, May 21st will be our annual drama presentation. This year the play will be Check Please, a comedy about a series of unfortunate blind dates! The kids worked very hard and would be ecstatic if you can join them on Wednesday, May 21st. The student and teacher only showing is at 4:30 and is $2 at door. The regular show time for all is at 7pm and is $2 kids and $4 adults or $10 for a 4 pack. The show will last about an hour and is sure to provide a ton of laughs!! Please plan to come out and support our students!

Thursday, May 22nd will be the Geometry EOC. This test will occur in the media center. Make-up for the Geometry EOC will be held on Friday, May 23rd. Good luck students!

Thank you again parents for all you do to help make OMS an amazing school. Take care and have a wonderful week.

Good afternoon Osceola Middle School families, this is Chad Eiben assistant principal, calling with a few updates. I hope everyone has had a great weekend and want to wish a happy Mother’s day to all of our wonderful moms.

I want to first start with an update on Ms. Arsenault. As some of you may have heard, Ms. Arsenault returned to OMS this past week. We are so excited and happy for her return. She is working limited hours as she re-acclimates herself to the work environment. Way to go Ms. Arsenault! We are so very happy for you.

This week we will have the Algebra EOC. To clarify, this test is only for students who took Algebra this year, not pre-algebra. Mr. Sorial’s students will take the EOC on Wednesday, Mr. Dohnal’s students will test Thursday, and Mrs. Huekler’s students and make-ups will be held Friday. All Algebra EOC testing will occur in the Media Center.

This Tuesday, May 13th will be the talent show try-outs. This will occur after school on Tuesday. Please see Ms. McIntosh if you have questions.

Also, Tuesday is the SAC and PTSA meetings. The SAC meeting will be at 5:30PM and the PTSA meeting will be at 6PM. Both meetings will be held in the cafeteria. PTSA will be serving food and will hold elections for next year’s board. Also, I want to thank the PTSA for an amazing staff appreciation week last week. It was a great week and everyone enjoyed all the goodies. Thank you so much!

This Friday, May 16th we will be having the ESE field trip to Seminole Park and the PMAC field trip to Walsingham Park. Also, 8th grade students who ordered yearbooks will receive them during 7th period on Friday.

This past Friday was the 8th grade Gradventure trip. The trip was a huge success and the students had lot of fun. Thank you to all the parents who were on time for the student pick-up as well as to the parents who did not park in the bus loop. Your help and attention to detail is greatly appreciated.

There are only 17 days of school left. Thank you parents for helping us keep the students focused, on-task, and following the dress code these last few weeks of school. Your help and support has made this a truly amazing school year. Thank you and have a great evening. Good night.
