Towles Intermediate School Half time

In the Towles New Tech Half Time, the schedule for what happens changes weekly. The most important purpose of Half Time is to build and maintain our culture. Facilitators use this time to conference with students individually about their standardized testing data. At times, facilitators and students will lead small group discussions about Trust, Respect, and Responsibility, which are the foundation of our school culture. Sometimes they have work time for classes where they can work on class projects. On other days, they may have team-building activities, grade-level activities, or whole-school activities planned for that 30-minute period. Periodically, students will be able to use this time to visit the Writing Center and get individualized attention from their peer tutors to help improve a writing piece for one of their classes.
