Principal's Message

February 2022
Students came back from holiday break ready to learn! Kudos to our students for their awesome effort during our winter benchmarking period. Their hard work is paying off!
After the benchmarking window, teachers participated in our second Data Day of the school year. During these meetings, grade level teams analyzed current student achievement data in order to effectively plan for future instruction. This type of planning requires teamwork, and leads to powerful changes for our students. Our wonderful teaching assistants also play a large role in the success of implementing these strategies and carefully delivering instruction to meet the needs of all learners.

Staff and students have also been celebrating student growth in math and ELA! Our Core curriculum (Bridges Math, Eureka Math and American Reading Company) coupled with the unrelenting dedication from families and teachers is proving to be effective! Students have made significant gains in math and reading as measured by AimsWeb and STAR. In addition, 76% (!) of our students are currently on target for their reading level! Way to go Wildcats!

Thank you for your ongoing support! We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with families as we enter the second half of the year.
Warm Regards,
Courtney Francis
