The Start of a New School Year:
The start of a new school year is always exciting for me. Back from a wonderful summer break, with a sense of renewal and optimism, the year is full of possibility and opportunity. I hope that you have enjoyed the summer, had a chance to spend some time together with family and friends, and have set some goals for the new school year.
This fall we will be operating full-day kindergarten in our school. This has been a massive undertaking and we are very proud of our FDK program, as well as our Extended Day Program that we are now offering to facilitate a seamless day for children and families.
School Improvement for Student Achievement (SIPSA): Our commitment to improving your child’s academic achievement continues to be our focus. These plans outline the strategies that we are putting in place at the school level, to close the gaps for our neediest students. This year, we have refined the school improvement planning process and have reinforced our commitment for student and parent participation in this process.
These are just a few of the examples of the work that will be taking place in our school. It’s the combined impact of this kind of direction and the incredible teaching that happens in our classrooms which results in positive learning for all our students.
I’m always excited to start a new school year and I hope that you and your child share that excitement. Thank you for being part of our school.
