Principal's Message

Happy New Year and Welcome Back from the Winter Break!

This is the time of year that many of us use to reflect and plan ways to improve for the new year. These resolutions are usually based on what we perceive as an area of growth or one that needs improvement. Our resolution this year is to dig deeper into our commitment to provide our students with robust and enriching learning experiences that foster a love of learning and prepare them for life as global citizens.

As an IB school, we approach teaching and learning holistically, understanding that content, skills, and student learner profiles, attitudes, and perceptions are all related and work together for the success of each student. Make sure to check out what each grade is up to this month and see how our talented and dedicated teachers use this integrated approach to prepare our students to excel.

At this point of our academic year, all students in grades K-5 will be assessed again using the Fountas & Pinnell benchmark system and i-Ready. Teachers use the student data collected from these assessments to provide additional needed academic support and student interventions. Your child’s teacher will be sharing the data to let you know how your child performed on these assessments and in other subject areas. Remember that you can stay linked to your child's academic progress through Class Dojo and Progress Reports that will be distributed next week. These

tools are valuable resources for communication and should be monitored frequently.

Coming up in January:

  • Grades K-2 will begin
  • Chess Grades PK-5 will begin soccer
  • January 10th - PTA Meeting 8:30am
  • January 11th - Coffee and Tea with Ms. D and Ms. Ellman - Topic: Middle School Admissions
