Dear Findley Families,


We are approaching the finish line of another school year in just one week. Although we continued to work through the challenges of COVID this school year, I am proud of the hard work and dedication of our students and staff and the support of our families. Our mission is Engage.Connect.Grow and our vision is To Create a Community of Engaged, Connected, and Growing Learners. We focused on engaging students in rigorous tier 1 instruction, made connections and formed relationships, and grew our students through enrichment and interventions.


Below you will see screenshots of our iReady diagnostic growth from the fall to the spring for grades K-5. This data is just one testament of the amount of growth that our students have shown this year. Our median percent progress toward typical growth in reading is 138% and math is 128%. You will receive the spring diagnostic reports for your child in the coming days. Here is a link explaining the diagnostic report.


Our field day is tomorrow and I know the students are very excited. I want to thank our PE teacher, Jana Paulk, and our PE instructional para, Chuck McMahan, for all of their hard work to organize this wonderful event. Also, thanks to all of our parents who have signed up to volunteer. We could not do this event without your help.


With Gratitude,


Camille Christopher
