Principal's Letter

Letter From the Principal

This week we reached the midpoint of the school year. We have had a great first semester of the year. Our teachers are working hard collaborating with each other and meeting weekly to look at student progress and growth to help guide their instruction. Students will take mid-year assessments this month that will help look at their progress. Student data helps us make any necessary adjustments to our instruction.

This is a great time to set goals and aspirations for the year. Setting and accomplishing goals is a great thing for students to learn at a young age. We challenge students to set an academic goal or two on something they would like to accomplish the last two quarters of the year. When students have success with setting a goal and accomplishing it they are more likely to continue doing it. We believe in dreaming big which requires lots of small successes along the way. Setting and achieving SMART goals is a great place to start. Is the goal Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely? Don’t forget to have students write it down and keep it somewhere where they see it frequently.

We have a Parent Teacher Conference coming up on February 7-9. This is a great time to look at your child’s progress and celebrate their strengths and discuss areas they can improve. By the end of next week we will send out information on how to schedule an appointment for your student(s). We really look forward to meeting with you. I want to wish each of you a great 2018!
