Hawk Time ELT (Extended Learning Time)
All FCPS Middle Schools offer an ELT block. At UMS, we call this block "Hawk Time" and the format includes opportunities for tutoring, reteaching and enrichment. Hawk Time takes place from 9:47-10:17 am, unless there is a late arrival or early dismissal, in which case the time will vary according to the adjusted schedule.
During Hawk Time, students return to one of their classes to receive enrichment, extension, or additional instruction in that curricular area. Students may also receive tutoring or interventions during this time. On periodic days throughout each month, students will report to their PBIS groups to engage in PBIS activities, Olweus lessons, and other school-wide or grade-level events.
