September 21, 2016
We have had an amazing opening to the school year. Our students are settled into their classrooms and practicing routines and procedures with teachers that facilitate learning. Our teachers are doing a great job teaching standards and providing support for all students. Teachers invest a lot of time on their own and with colleagues to plan instruction and make instructional decisions so that our students make good progress on learning goals. We started a weekly school wide flag salute every Friday morning at 8:15am. This helps us connect our school community together, build pride for our school, and share information about important themes like safety, attendance, and being our best self. We invite you to attend the Friday flag salutes.
We have had two recent parent meetings for ELAC and School Site Council. Their was a very good turn out for the meetings. Thank you to everyone who attended. A few of the things that parents learned at the meetings were: our school plan goals from last year, results and progress on those goals, and goals for this school, year. Parents participated in an activity where they provided suggestions about actions we can implement at school to increase student achievement for our school plan goals. We encourage parents to attend these meetings and other school events to be well connected with the school, to learn about our programs, and to give us input and suggestions.
We have been messaging the importance of good attendance in recent weeks with students and families. We began a Twitter campaign this weekend that will continue to the end of September. The campaign features attendance memes to get the message out and reinforce that coming to school every day is a top priority. You can follow us on Twitter @RascalPride or see the Tweets on the school web page at http://www.rowlandelemschool.org. The culmination of our campaign is a 100% Attendance Day Challenge. If our school has 100% attendance on September 23 or 30, I will be surprising them with something a little out of the ordinary. Click the following link to find out what the surprise could be: https://twitter.com/RascalPride/status/777949154924302336.
