Second Semester of the 2019-2020 School year

With the arrival of 2020, this is a time where many of us reflect on what we would like to do differently to make the New Year a great one. These reflections are often in the form of “New Year Resolutions,” where we set goals for the brand-new year. As we reach the half way point in the school year, I encourage you to set some academic goals with your child. Perhaps your child would like to become more proficient at reading. Together you can make a goal to read for a minimum of ten minutes per day. Perhaps your child would like to become more proficient at math. Together you can make a goal to practice basic math facts every night for ten minutes. Setting goals is a powerful, motivating tool, and your support at home is crucial to your child’s success in school. It is the goal of all of our Havel staff members to increase the proficiency of ALL of our students in ALL of our academic areas (reading, writing, math, science, and social studies), and we are working very hard to achieve this goal.
