May It Be of Benefit

Hello Families,

With the Omicron surge behind us and the mask mandate lifting at the end of next week, we are all breathing a little easier. Thank you for hanging in there for just 5 more school days of mandatory mask-wearing.

Aside from that positive news, we have more to celebrate. Your children just completed their 2nd Trimester Assessments, and their report cards are ready to be shared with you during parent-teacher conferences. Looking at our schoolwide data, it's clear that though students, on the whole, have suffered what has come to be known as "learning loss" due to time out of school, they have also made good gains in the time that they have been here! 75% of our students have met their "growth goal" up to this point in the year for iReady Reading and 65% have met their "growth goal" so far in iReady Math. This means that many students are growing and making progress towards catching up! Be sure to arrange a conference with your child's teacher to get specific information on where your child is and how we can support him or her to finish this year strong!

With gratitude,

Mrs. Gold

Students frequently show up to start their day in class and report that they are hungry and didn't have breakfast. Often, when we check with parents, they tell us that students were dropped off with plenty of time to go eat breakfast in our cafe, but students hit the ground running and forget their empty tummies when they see friends on the playground. So, we had signs made for both the Kindergarten playground and the "Big Kids" playground that remind students to get breakfast before class starts. And, no- we are not serving coffee in our cafe :) Those must be steaming mugs of oatmeal.
