We hope that this letter finds you enjoying these warmer
days and getting to spend some time outside.
The kids are all very excited to have access to the playground and the
walking track. There were certainly
moments this winter when we thought we would never see grass again!
We recently sent home a link to our School Climate Survey
for Parent Feedback and wanted to explain more about the importance of this
survey. Each year for the past three
years, we have sent home a similar survey and each year the results inform
decisions we make about our focus. Two
years ago, the results let us know that parents wanted to have more
opportunities to be part of their child’s education and so we focused that year
on providing parents with meaningful opportunities to come into school or to
support their child at home. The survey
results last year let us know that this initiative was successful as many
parents reported that they were part of their child’s education and had options
for participating in classroom activities.
Last year’s survey also let us know that not all parents
felt we were holding students to high expectations. This feedback has led us to focus this year
on challenging students to meet high academic and behavioral expectations and
to communicate the ways in which we differentiate curriculum to meet the
specific needs of each individual student.
We ask that you please take a few minutes to complete the
survey if you have not done so already. To
access the survey, please visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/QNJ72MZ.
We want to ensure that every voice is represented when we
make decisions about our focus for next year.
