A Note from Mr. Capp

Families, while the Covid news and emails churn through your inbox, please know that we are actually doing school inside the walls of Steele! Students are creating goals for the D11 profile, and for math growth, and they are working daily on relating to each other and growing friendships. Teachers are diagnosing math and reading strengths, and identifying skill gaps to work on. Next week our tutoring team meets with each grade level to schedule and target groups with specific instruction. We are already seeing our Kinders figuring out ‘school!’ They know where lunch is, and are learning to ask a neighbor before the teacher, and are figuring out concepts of print.

Just so you know, I will be out of the office for all next week, dropping the last Capp Kid at college. Rhonda Toombs will be Principal in my absence, and I will be checking in when possible. My supervisor knows and will also be on call should anything weird come up!

Thank you, as ever, for bringing your beautiful children here every day to learn and grow.

Mr. Capp
