It is hard to believe that January is already over and we are well on our way into the second semester. It was quite exciting to see so many of our fourth and fifth grade students earning honor roll for the first semester. Thank you to all of the family and friends who came to the assembly to show support for all of their hard work and dedication to learning. Remember that it takes a combination of three A's and two B's to earn that honor roll recognition. I look forward to even more students working toward this goal for the second semester.
I am so excited to be able to say that along with common core standards, I am seeing rich conversations and high level critical thinking happening in all of our classrooms, K-5. Gone are the days when students can choose not to participate or passively learn. Students need to take an active role in their learning. Listening and speaking is a big part of the standards; not just with regard to formal presentations, but also within daily lessons. I do know that there are many of you questioning the amount of time your child's teacher seems to be out of the classroom. I ask that you remain patient, as I can assure you that during the time your child's teacher spends out of the room s/he is working with and/or creating valuable lessons and tools that are being immediately used with students. So everyone benefits ultimately!
Please continue to check our PTO and OEF websites for information regarding upcoming events and activities. Owl grams are on sale now. Basket raffle donations and ticket sales are coming, and so is the Jog-a-thon. They provide so many opportunities for student and family involvement. We are very lucky!
