Dear Families,

We have made it to the end of the third week of school. I hope everyone’s routines are becoming easier at home in terms of bed times, wake ups and getting ready for school each day. Attendance is crucial for student growth and development, and our families play a huge role in that. We love what we do and look forward to seeing your students each and every day. Thank you for all you are doing as parents. Educating your children is a partnership that we don’t take lightly. We are servants to our community and we love what we do.

As we settle in, I need families to know that a huge responsibility we have in educators is to provide interventions to our students. Interventions are supports we put in place to re-teach or boost a student in their progress. These interventions center solely around our math and reading content. Students receive these interventions after post-test scores have been attained. As a staff, we look at test scores and dive into specific areas of need. For our middle school students, these interventions will occur during their 7th period, or electives.

Another thing I want to share is that every newsletter this year I will try and spotlight one or two staff members. Just introduce them and inform you, the community what their role is. First though, I will put grade level teams and their names. I hope this is informative to you as parents and community members. Our staff is amazing and works extremely hard to meet the needs of of our students.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Take care and stay safe.

Mr. Proctor
