Dear Parents and Community,
As the school year comes to a close, I am again considering myself very lucky to be the principal of such a wonderful school. The staff, students, and extended school community has been working together to make many special events and learning take place.
Recently, we have worked on the vision and mission of the school. This is tied into the future planning of our school. Next up for this work will be creating a strategic plan for how the vision and mission will be carried out. Also, teachers are being trained in new and better ways to instruct and help students learn. These trainings will assist and direct teachers as they take on the Common Core Standards being adopted as curriculum across the state.
Concerts, sport games, Lego competitions, Odyssey of the Mind competitions, Drama Club, and more are just some of the events that occurred this year. Coming up we have Family Picnic & Field Day, classroom field trips, 8th Grade Graduation, and our final assembly of the year. We hope to see you on June 18th!
After the school year comes to a close, the learning does not have to end! Keeping children active physically and mentally is an important part of the summer. Don’t let too much television or video game time consume each day. From reading books of interest; exploring the beach, woods, or local parks; to creating their own activities all help stimulate learning outside of the classroom and prevent the word ‘boring’ from being part of your child’s world. We look forward to hearing great stories in September!
