The Icahn 7 Experience

Principal's Message

 

 It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to another school year. The 2016--2017 school year promises to be filled with positive changes and growth for our school as we have not only added a new grade, 5th grade, but we have also strengthened our commitment to providing the best quality education for your children. It is my hope that as you navigate through this site that you will get a glimpse into our life here at Icahn Charter 7. Our faculty and staff look forward to working closely with you as we plan a memorable and exciting school year for your children.

Our Mission

 

The mission of Icahn Charter Schools is to use the Core Knowledge curriculum, developed by E.D. Hirsch, to provide students with a rigorous academic program offered in an extended day/year setting. Students will graduate armed with the skills and knowledge to participate successfully in the most rigorous academic environments, and will have a sense of personal and community responsibility.

Monthly Syllabus

   

The monthly syllabus provides parents an opportunity to become familiar with the skills and strategies that will be taught to their children each month in school. Please look for a hard copy of the syllabus to appear in your child's Boomerang folder each month.

100 Book Challenge Reading Program

  

The 100 Book Challenge program is a systematic independent reading program that allows each student an opportunity to read at his or her independent reading level. Each day a student is encouraged to spend 30 minutes reading at school and 30 minutes at home to increase reading stamina and comprehension. Students track the amount of reading they complete on logsheets that are signed by parents and are reviewed daily by their teacher.  Special prizes and school-wide celebrations are given throughout the year to commemorate the students' reading achievements.
