Floyd Middle Magnet School and Floyd PTSA are recognized as a National School of Excellence

18 10 2016

National PTA® has recognized Floyd Middle Magnet School and the school’s PTA as a National PTA School of Excellence for their achievement in building effective family-school partnerships. Research shows that when families and schools work together, student achievement increases, schools improve and communities grow stronger. Being recognized as a National PTA School of Excellence demonstrates the school’s leadership is committed to supporting student success and continuous school improvement. 

“The partnership between Floyd Middle and their PTA is a true example of what can be accomplished when schools and families work together,” said Laura Bay, president of National PTA. “They have put strong practices into place that involve families in the life of the school, and we are pleased to recognize them as a National PTA School of Excellence.”

National PTA launched its School of Excellence program to help strengthen family-school partnerships across the country and make measurable progress in the areas of education, health and safety and arts and cultural exploration. As a National PTA School of Excellence, families at Floyd Middle Magnet School feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement.

To be recognized as a National PTA School of Excellence, PTAs evaluate their current family engagement strategies and submit a goal for school improvement that families, teachers and administrators have set together. They improve upon their family engagement strategies throughout the year, while focusing on their goal. The National PTA School of Excellence designation is awarded to those schools that have demonstrated improvement in the family-school partnership and significant progress toward their goal.

Junior Youth Legislature

28 01 2016

On January 22, twenty-eight Floyd Middle Magnet students participated in the 26th Junior Youth Legislature held at the Alabama State Capitol building where they met with other middle school students from across Alabama. The Floyd students were selected to be in the Senate. They participated in workshops on bill writing and parliamentary procedure in the morning and then debated bills having to do with state laws during the afternoon session. Two of the bills written by Floyd students were debated. Chanice Spicer and Nirea Osborne wrote and presented a bill that would require Alabama to remove the tax on groceries. Jada Burroughs’ and Zaniyah Frazier’s bill would grant paternity to leave for new fathers. After the debate, the Senate voted to pass their bill.

Floyd students were also elected for several offices by the other student senators. Justin An served as Chaplain, Claire Conway as Clerk, Joe Higgins as Floor Leader, and Sherelenthia Brazzley as Pro Temp. Yori Adagunodo, Isabella Baker, Sherelenthia Brazzley, Joe Higgins, Mary Jenkins, and Hannah Thomas were each recognized as an “Outstanding Statesman.”12573118_691989147570947_1197618839717516050_n
