Principal's Message

Dear Parents,Dawn Wood

Our 2021-22 school year is off to a great start!  We are so excited to have all our students back in the classroom. It certainly would not be possible without your support and patience. I’m so proud of how much our students and teachers have accomplished during these challenging times. Everyone continues to go above and beyond. I’m confident this will be a successful, productive reset year. 


Below is some information you may find helpful:

• Classroom Schedules: Teachers should have shared their classroom schedules with you. We have set aside 60 minutes for each of the core subjects (Math, ELA, and Science/Social Studies). These times may vary according to the grade level.

• Specials: We have implemented a six-day special rotation schedule. Your child will have art, music, library, and at least two PE classes each six-day rotation. We have created a color-coded calendar for teachers and students to follow. Information was sent home in September.

• Intervention Blocks: Each 3-6 classroom teacher will provide intervention to their students. Intervention is typically a 30-minute block of time each day where teachers deliver extra help or enrichment in the various subject areas. At the K-2 level, reading intervention will be delivered by our primary reading teacher. 

• Family Engagement: This year our Elementary Site Team will be planning events to connect with our families. Check out our school website for more information.

• Parent-Teacher Conferences: Mark your calendars for November 15th and December 1st. Our classroom teachers will be sending home information very soon. 

•  Attendance Matters: It’s important to have our students here at school every day. Research shows that missing 10 percent of school days can negatively affect a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month. 

• Students In Quarantine: When your child is placed in a state-mandated quarantine, our teachers are prepared to provide both synchronous and asynchronous instruction. Our school staff will reach out to you with the necessary materials and devices to keep your child learning during their absence. 

Please know my door is always open. You can contact me anytime and I will do my best to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Thank you again for your continued support. I look forward to seeing you at our family events.


Sincerely,


Mrs.Dawn Wood
