A Message from the Principal
Dear Booker T. Washington Families,
Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays with family and friends. We are so excited to be back at school with our students. I have a few updates and reminders. As always, please contact me with any questions that you may have. Here is to a wonderful 2023!!
Report cards go home tomorrow. Please review your child’s grades and reach out to your child’s teacher if you need additional information. We encourage you to schedule a time to meet with your child’s teacher if you have concerns.
Thanks for making sure your child was present during the Winter MAP assessments. I am pleased to say that overall, our students are growing academically. We have a lot of ground to make up. Please be sure your child is attending school everyday. Every minute of instruction matters. You can assist us by making sure your child is reading 20 minutes a day or you are reading with your child 20 minutes a day at home.
In an effort to increase attendance, we will be raffling off a bike at each grade level for students who have perfect attendance for the month of January, February and March. Our first drawing will be February 1st. Perfect attendance means being here before 7:45 and staying all day. Students who are late and have early dismissals will not be included in the drawing. We want to thank the Lexington Alumni chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi for donating bikes to our school.
ESS Updates We look forward to beginning our after school enrichment program in the next few weeks. While I would like to service every student, we are unable to do so with our current staffing. We will be reviewing data to determine which students will be invited. Contact me or our ESS Coordinator Ms. Miranda @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
- School begins promptly at 7:45am. You must come in if you arrive after this time.
- Attendance is important to your child's growth. We need them at school everyday.
