Message from the Principal
I cannot believe we are on our 5th week of this school year already! We are so excited about our successful beginning of the school year. Teachers have been working hard on building relationships with their students, creating a culture of learning and supporting each other in their learning career. It is crucial that students understand why their education is important and apply what they are learning in their every day lives.
We continue to emphasize the importance of reading every day at home and practicing what they are learning in school with their family. Please take a few minutes to talk to your student about how important it is to read at home and how they are using their reading, writing, math, science, and other skills at home. Please take time these two days of no school to talk about what they are currently learning in their class and practice together.
We love seeing our students excited and engaged in their own learning.
Last week's winners:
3. Mrs. Godfrey's 2nd grade at 98.27%
2. Mrs. Schmidt's 4th grade at 98.58%
1. Ms. Barcenas' 3rd grade at 98.97%
Talented and Gifted Students (TAG)
Parents are welcome to refer their child for services designed for students identified as talented and gifted. Students who score at or above the 97th percentile on a nationally standardized, norm-referenced test of overall reading or math or on a mental abilities test, and have other confirming evidence that they learn at a rapid rate and advanced level, are identified as TAG students. With parent input, individual plans are made to adjust the rate and level of the student’s instruction to meet his or her specific needs.
If you think your child may qualify for TAG services, and want information about the referral and identification process, please contact: Trina Nees.
