McCall Elementary eNews

January 23-February 6th

Greetings Colt Community!


After a three day weekend, I can honestly say we are now back at full speed here at McCall. As an instructional staff, we spent a lot of time the first few weeks back looking the progress your children made from the first of the school year. We have adjusted kid's placement in classes, analyzed tutorial needs, and spent a lot of time reflecting on practices that could be implemented to help your child grow even more this semester. Please remember that you have access to ALL of your child's testing data through the parent portal. This information is updated within 24 hours of MAP testing, so you can view their results fairly immediately. PLEASE do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher when you have a concern; we are your partner and we want you to understand all the data and decisions we are making to help them grow. The link to the parent portal will be included in the newsletter below for your ease and access to that information.


This is the time of year where planning for next year begins to start--crazy to think about isn't it? Our PTA is on the same cycle and in the upcoming months, we need to fill MANY positions on our PTA Board. I really invite you to reflect upon what role YOU might be able to serve to benefit the instructional programming at McCall Elementary. Some of the positions available will be: President, VP of Public Relations/Fundraising, VP of Ways and Means, VP of Membership, VP of Programs, Treasurer and so many more. A link to the PTA website will be provided below so that you can look at the roles in more detail to determine where you can fit in their great organization. The educators at McCall simply cannot do what we do for your kids with out a healthy PTA. Please seriously consider getting involved, this is a great time for us.


I want to thank ALL the parents who came up for evening events in January. We had some of the best turnout at those events that I can ever recall. February will be a busy month with a First Grade Program and PTA meeting and before you know it, Open House in March will be here. Events planned are highlighted below in our newsletter.


Thank you for all your support!
