Attendance

Parents,

We are asking for your help in bringing your child to school every day. Attendance is very important for several reasons.

  • Structure. When your child regularly engages in the same activities, they will be more likely to develop structure. This structure instills a better sense of time management into your child that will be useful in many avenues of their life.
  • Achievement. Students who regularly attend class are more likely to pass reading and math assessments than students who don’t. Children are more likely to keep up with daily assignments and homework, and be better prepared for tests and quizzes.
  • Language skills. Younger students are exposed to classes and activities that are crucial for developing language. The window of opportunity for optimal language learning is small, so it is important to teach them consistently while they’re young to decrease development issues.
  • Social skills. Children will participate in many social situations that are vital for understanding the world around them. Socializing with peers helps them understand social cues, social etiquette, and how to express their thoughts.

Educator Spotlight

This week we are celebrating Mrs. Sotelo. Mrs. Sotelo serves our campus as curriculum coach. She works with our students daily in small group. She also steps in when a teacher is out for an extended period of time so students do not lose instruction. Mrs. Sotelo creates assessments, analyzes scores and supports teachers with anything they need.
