Siegrist Parents

2016-17

Welcome to Siegrist!

We are so excited to build renewed, long-lasting relationships with families. The concept of K-5 schools is something that I have hoped for over the course of the last 6 years. The idea of getting to know families and students over 6 years rather than the short term relationships of the past is very exciting to all of us.


One thing that you will notice is that Siegrist is getting a face lift. A few cosmetic upgrades are on the schedule for the summer, but you cannot replace the warmth that we hope you feel as you walk into our building in August. We have amazing plans to make this K-5 educational experience one that you and your children will always remember.


We are excited to explore student leadership, renew parent relationships through opportunities to volunteer and share your expertise, and expand upon the rich educational opportunities that are only available in a K-5 building.


Our staff has spent a great deal of time during this Spring to develop a concept of learning that is fresh and innovative. This concept transforms the time we have together on early release days. Going forward early release days will be INNOVATION DAYS at Siegrist. The day will start with a student led assembly and will flow into innovative teaching blocks and student innovation teams. These days will be designed by a team of teachers whose focus will be to engage students through 21st century learning topics and methods. We hope to engage parents to participate in these days partnering with us to lead students to explore leadership through topics they are passionate about.


We are searching for the LEADER in YOU!


Below you will find some interesting partnerships that we would like to offer to parents. If you find yourself with a skill set that can enhance the environment or learning experience our students share, please consider one of the commitments below. Some of these jobs are for 1 hour during PLC weeks, and some can be done in the summer or in the evenings or weekends. If you miss the sign up, don't worry, once we establish our student information teams, there are many more specialties that will open up for your consideration.


Again, we are so lucky to have an amazing parent and families support group to work with....and we can't wait for next year.


Yours truly,

Jen McClure, Principal

Kali Young, Asst. Principal

Interior Decorating- Monthly Meetings
