Welcome Back to the 2016-2017 School Year!
It is with great pride and excitement that I write my opening letter for this 2016-2017 school year! Last year was a successful year as we met both our ELA and Math SBAC school-wide goals in grades 3rd-5th. In addition, we had more students passing benchmarks and math facts assessments, in grades K-5, as compared to the previous year. It is with your continued support that we will continue to achieve this year.
This year we welcome the following new staff members: Steven Goodwin, counselor; Renee Chalmers, 3rd grade teacher; Irisalba Pino, 3rd grade teacher; Agnes Amores, 1st grade teacher and Caroline Wright, 1st grade teacher. These individuals come to us with years of experience and we are confident that they will continue to help us fulfill our mission of ensuring our students reach their greatest potential every day. In addition, we will be having both a new health assistant and speech teacher.
As you begin to plan for this school year, please remember that this will be our last year on Track B, also known as year round. The 2017-2018 school year will bring a new schedule, to all of us, as we will be on the traditional calendar with all of our neighboring elementary, middle and high schools. We will forward you these dates as soon as they are published.
Finally, I am posing the following challenge to each and every one of you: no unexcused absences in the coming year. Unfortunately, last year, we did not meet our attendance goal. Our goal for ALL students, including kindergarteners, is that they do not have more than 5 attendance marks on their student record. This includes all absences that keep a student away from their education. Research shows that students with excellent attendance in elementary have a higher high school graduation rate and that’s our vision for all students is that they will be college and career ready upon high school graduation.
With Dino Pride,
