This is Dr. Smith with your weekly updates. This week was filled with lots of great teaching. As I visited classrooms I saw students engaged in reading comprehension, as well as rich and lively discussions while analyzing literature. During our morning announcements students reflected on leadership traits, growth mindset tips and our school-wide expectations. Please review these with your children.
6-week progress notices will be sent home in two weeks. These notices are designed to alert you of any areas your child needs to sharpen their skills in. Be sure to speak to your child’s teacher to get the specifics on ways you can support your child in reaching the level of proficiency needed.
This week focus on the importance of the type of questions that will better develop the depth of knowledge and skills the students need to have in order to solve complex problems and master reading comprehension. Our goal is to improve on Reading Comprehension Questions you should ask at home. Our goal is to have our students solve complex problems as well as being able to read independently and proficiently at the upper range of their grades’ Lexile Band by the end of each year. Be sure to inquire with your teacher the Lexile level of your child.
We are school-wide, increasing our reading and writing opportunities to support all students academic achievement. We are on the path to becoming College and Career Ready.
Every Monday is School Spirit Wear, every Tuesday dismissal is 1:33pm, every Wednesday look in your child’s notebook for any School to Home Correspondence, and every Friday is College Awareness Day. That’s all for now. Have a Fabulous Week!
