8th Grade Teams

Welcome to our 8th grade Team Information!

Ms. Jodi Castello, School Counselor
jodicastello@ircsd.org
315.642.0131

Each of our teams are comprised of four core content teachers in English, Social Studies, Math, and Science, plus an additional fifth teacher, who offers additional support to students. The A and B teams are assigned a Special Education Teacher and the C teams are assigned an English as a New Language (ENL) Teacher. These additional teachers co-teach and consult with teachers and support our students in both the classroom and small group settings. The C team is a looping team which means these students have the same group of teachers for both 7th and 8th grade. Academic standards for learning and delivery are consistent across all teams and all grade levels.

Each team meets once a day as a group during "Team Time" to work collaboratively, sharing information, strategies, and tools necessary to help students be successful at Indian River Middle School. Team time is also set so that parents can set up parent/teacher conferences throughout the entire year and review grades and student behavior. Parents can set up conference time with their School Counselor.

Parents and students are encouraged to visit their respective team's website to check daily homework assignments, email teachers directly, and access documents and other resources found on teacher's inpidual websites .
