This time of year, I reflect on the many blessings we all enjoy. The children that we share are one of the greatest joys in my life. Parents who support our efforts are another blessing. I believe we are here to serve you and I value the partnership we have. Our turnout for parent teacher conferences was nearly 100%. There are many data points that indicate what we are doing together makes us a GREAT SCHOOL in terms of growth. However, in terms of achievement, the learning loss due to our COVID situation has impacted many students readiness for the next level. Everything you can do to help in terms of basic skills in reading and math will serve your child well for the future.
I believe we can always be better tomorrow than we are today. We are always examining areas for improvement. We analyze data to identify who needs more help to be prepared for “Success at the Next Level.” Our teachers are constantly working to meet the needs of all students as they collaborate about challenges to overcome. As stated in previous newsletters, anything you can do to help students understand and work with fractions is invaluable. In addition, reading and math fact fluency are very important for students’ success.
Our counselor, Mrs. Kurt-Mason, also seeks to help students in a variety of ways as they develop socially and emotionally. From mindfulness, to conflict resolution, to cognitive assessments she is a phenomenal asset and support.
If you ever have feedback that will help us grow and improve in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me or another appropriate staff member. Finally, if you ever have questions about our practices or programs, please feel free to give me a call at 307-885-2472.
