Week of April 12, 2021

Leadership Corner

K-3 Campus

What a great week at the K-3 Campus. We had our 1st harvest of lettuce from our indoor garden. It was so fun to see the kids so eat what they grew. So exciting. Kindergarten continues to work hard with their reading. I was able to hear kindergarten students read words like hound, round, and found. What a huge accomplishment. 2nd Grade students took the COGAT test this week and worked so hard. They were focused and thoughtful about their answers. 3rd grade continues to get ready to shine on CMAS! One of the 3rd grade teachers shared with me that she asked a student what they were excited for this weekend and he said, not this weekend but I am so ready to take CMAS. Our students have so much to be proud of. I am excited for them to show off!

It looks to be a perfect Colorado spring weekend. I hope you get outside and enjoy the sunshine.

I am so grateful to be able to partner with you to help educate your child(ren). Thank you for sharing them with us and choosing New Vision Charter School.

4-8 Campus

This week was amazing! We were able to open up our GagaBall Pit and put up our basketball hoops on the playground, which has led to a higher level of activity during recess for cohorts that are in the area for the week. Our 5th grade classes held an amazing CMAS bootcamp where students got to practice skills they will need next week as we begin state testing. 4th grade is hosting their CMAS Spirit Week next week to get students excited about CMAS! Our girls basketball season and boys soccer seasons have begun and had their first games this week!

Middle school students have begun leaving their Chromebooks at school in our Chromecarts in preparation for our state assessments. This is so that we can ensure every student has a fully charged, functioning laptop for the state assessments. We understand this is not ideal and appreciate your cooperation in our efforts.

Parents, please encourage your student to do their best on their assessments. You can help your student succeed during their testing window by encouraging them to do their best and to take their time, ensure they get to bed early the week of their test, and to get them a good breakfast on the days they are testing.

Have a great weekend,

Marian Hejl
