Dear Students and Staff, Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,
Welcome to Rowland Elementary School and the 2019-2020 school year! Our school staff is eager to work with you and your child and to do all that we can to ensure that your child progresses toward his or her potential while feeling safe and cared for. If you have any questions about Rowland Elementary School, don’t hesitate to call or visit the school office.
We have so much planned for your child this year! Teachers will begin using the Reading Workshop model for teaching reading. This will complement the Writing Workshop model we started two years ago. We will continue to focus on relationships as the foundation for all our teaching and learning. Additional efforts that we will continue include:
· teaching and reinforcing our PRIDE school-wide behavior expectations with the goal of establishing a learning environment that promotes the social, emotional and academic success of all students.
· technology integration in classrooms with iPads and Chrome Books to enhance learning and prepare our students for College and Career in the 21st Century
· utilizing our iLab and innovation days to provide kids with hand-on learning experiences in design thinking and engineering practices
