MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) — This week’s Meijer Scholar Athlete is Reeths-Puffer High School senior Jazmin Wright-Zornes.

Jazmin is a multi-sport athlete who plays basketball and runs cross country.

She is very passionate about community engagement and helping others. Thats why she’s involved in student council and the national honors society, she said.

She has a 4.16 GPA  and has three advanced placement classes.

After high school, she plans to attend Central Michigan Universty to study medicine and is living by the saying, “Do what you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

“I love the idea of helping people,” she said, “and my mom always told me when I was looking for a career to pursue that I should look for something that I don’t have to work, and I think I found that in the job I want to go into, just helping others.”

M-Step Results & R-P Assurances

Filed under: Archive,Community News,Parents,School Board,Staff,Students — Mr. Beckeman @ 8:05 am

With the recent release of last spring’s M-Step results, parents (students too!) might find this video helpful as you review your student’s results.

The MEAP is now gone, and our Rockets took the new M-STEP for the first time last year.

The M-STEP measures student performance on a strong set of higher standards in English language arts and mathematics. Instead of bubble sheets and multiple-choice tests, students are showing critical thinking, problem solving, and deeper understanding.

Fast-forwarding from the MEAP to the M-STEP is a big deal. With the change of the test, all Michigan schools expected the results to look different. R-P established a new baseline that provides a better picture of what students know and where they need help.

The report you received included a breakdown of how your child performed within each subject. The report can help you, as a parent, to understand where your children excel or where they may need additional support.

Reeths-Puffer Schools are continually looking forward to plan for what students need to leverage their success in post-secondary education and careers.

Reeths-Puffer Schools are using all data available to guide decisions and support student learning needs.
