February Parent Newsletter
Manvel School ~ 2021
A Note from Principal Hiltner
We have started strong into the third quarter of school. Students are working hard, and teachers are building "proficiency scales and rubrics" to help assess your child's knowledge of the priority standards at all grade levels. We have also created a vocabulary document that shows the important vocabulary words taught at each grade level. You can find those on our school website to help you reinforce those words at home. Below see "12 Powerful Words" that research says all students should know well. *This is some of the important work we have been doing at our 1-hour late starts. We will be eventually moving towards standards-based report cards at Manvel School in the future.
Many of our Manvel students are involved in extra-curricular activities outside of school. If you have any successes to share with us, please do! We love to highlight and support our students both in and out of school on our school's Facebook page. We are proud of our Manvel students who continue to shine and show integrity and determination within the community.
May you continue to stay healthy and safe. We are grateful for the opportunity to educate your child in a loving and caring environment. Connections and relationships are KEY to a successful school, and it takes EVERYONE'S contribution to make it happen! Thanks for always partnering with us in the best interest of your child! Have a GREAT February!
