Our school year is off to a great start thanks to the amazing support of our community. Our classrooms have been completely updated aesthetically as well as technologically. Students are now welcomed into clean, beautiful, and functional classrooms ready for them to learn and grow.
As the new principal at the high school, it has been impressive to see how dedicated the staff is to the success of the students. Teachers are focusing on supporting students by providing effective opportunities to develop and increase their literacy. This can be seen in every classroom as teachers prepare for and implement opportunities for students to read and write effectively in each content area. We are also working to effectively engage students in the learning process by providing clear learning objectives in each class so students have the opportunity to take control over their own learning. We started this work last year and we have already seen improvements in our school data.
The most critical support for student growth and achievement is student attendance. Making sure that our kids are in every class every day is critical to student success and is a goal for our school, community, and families.
