Schofield Newsletter

Check out Schofield's website for more information about great things happening at our school!

Schofield's Attendance Goal

Schofield's building level goal is 96% monthly attendance. Our year to date proportional attendance is 95.16%

Building School Improvement Plan and School Performance

It is Schofield Elementary's goal to make sure 100% of students are proficient with Missouri Learning Standards for math and literacy.

Reading- We will be focusing on retelling- characters, setting, beginning, middle and end. This would be a great thing to go over when reading at home.

Writing- We will continue working on personal narratives for the rest of the semester. Students are expected to write a complete sentence. The sentence needs to have spaces, first letter capitalized, punctuation marks, sight words spelled correctly and stretch their words writing the sounds they hear (mainly beginning and ending sounds).

Math- We will be reviewing for the remaining of the semester. We will be working on identifying coins, teen numbers, and addition/subtraction.

Science/Social Studies- We will be using this time to work on some Christmas gifts for families.

Sight Words

Throughout the year we will be learning sight words. The goal is for them to be able to read them quickly and write them correctly in their writing pieces. A great way to practice them at home is for your child to write them or to find them in books as you are reading at home.

Words we have learned: we, the, go, to, is, like, see, it, and, with, can, my

New words this week: at, me

Things to Work on at Home

-writing upper and lowercase letters correctly

-letter sounds

-sight words

-counting to 100

-writing first name (first letter uppercase, the remaining lowercase)

-cutting, coloring

-write & identify numbers 0-20

-tying shoes

-zipping coat


We work a lot on setting goals and working towards them. Below are our current goals.


Literacy: We met our first goal on sight words last week! We celebrated with free craft time. Our new goal is 15/18 students will be able to identify 20 sight words. We are currently at 11%

Math: 15/18 students will be able to identify numbers 0-20. We are currently at 77%

K-2 Counselor

During our next visit from Ms. Pietruszynski, students will begin exploring the world of work. Students are never too young to start thinking about future careers and we are excited for our Schofield students to begin thinking about their future. As always, feel free to contact Ms. Pietruszynski with any questions/concerns you might have regarding your student.


Phone: 417-732-3610.

Tiger Paws

Students are able to earn tiger paws when they are being safe, respectful and following expectations. Each time our class earns 50 tiger paws we are able to move up on the wall and earn something special. We just earned another 50 tiger paws! We have 300 tiger paws! We will celebrate with a popcorn and movie party later today!
