Mathematics and Summer Resources
Based on feedback through last year's parent survey and my own vision of effective communication, this school year I will be developing monthly newsletters focused on curriculum and school news. I will send this newsletter through my Dolphin Detail alerts as a link. I may increase the frequency of these newsletters as the year goes on, but as a new form of communication, I want to make sure they are quality and effective. My weekly Dolphin Detail will continue to provide details on upcoming dates and events with descriptions of these events. I hope you find these forms of communication helpful throughout the year.
As a parent myself, I know that how we were taught growing up looks much different than how our students are taught today. In particular, mathematics is the one content area that has seen the most dramatic change in instruction. I often find myself in math classes saying "I wish I learned math this way!" If you don't understand a strategy or the new method for solving certain problems, it can be overwhelming. In order to deepen my own knowledge of math and the resources HCPSS has on hand, I took a math class this summer. The resources that HCPSS provides are amazing and so helpful in understanding the quality instruction that our students receive. For this edition, I am focusing on math and summer resources. Any feedback for what you like and what you would like to see in these newsletters is welcomed. firstname.lastname@example.org
Another component of these newsletters will be sharing all the exciting activities and events that are taking place at Centennial Lane Elementary. This will be an ever evolving component, and may include anything from teacher highlights, student highlights, cultural arts programs and more! You will see pictures that are being shared on Twitter, but please feel free to follow us @hcpss_cles.
