The Lion's Share

September 2018

A Message from the Principal:

Good morning,

It was so great to see so many of you at our Curriculum Nights! I know that with a solid partnership between home and school, the sky is the limit for our students.

Our teachers have dedicated themselves to establishing effective classroom procedures, and developing a relationship with each student during these first few weeks of school. Research shows that before students are ready to learn, teachers have to show students that they care about them. While this is an ongoing process, the foundation has definitely been established.

As we move towards September we can move on to our next set of goals. This year I have challenged teachers to "meet students where they are," and teach from there. By giving assessments to determine prior knowledge, teachers are better able to scaffold and support struggling students, while challenging those that need it. This approach leads to a more personalized education for each student. At Settler's Point (staff and students) success is measured in growth.

I truly feel that it is my job to serve the Settler's Point community, and if there is anything I can do to help you or your student, please contact me.

Robert Bircher

Proud Principal of Settler's Point
