Principal's Message

 
Happy New Year!
 
            Everywhere you look people are setting new goals for the new year.  As we return from our winter break, I strongly encourage you to sit with your student to do the same.  January marks our halfway point for the year.  During our parent/teacher conferences in the October, teachers explained your child’s beginning-of-the-year assessment data and explained the grade-level standards.  In December, the first trimester report cards were mailed out.  January is a great time to set academic and behavioral goals for the second half of the year.  Often times, I hear “My child’s teacher doesn’t send home homework. Research shows the most impactful homework is reading every night and practicing math facts.   Another goal that can help your child succeed, is to collect their electronics at bedtime. This allows your child to awake more rested, and limits social media time. Another goal to set, is an attendance goal.  Missing just two days a month is considered chronic absenteeism.  Your child is missed when they aren’t at school and they are missing the daily instruction.  If your child is experiencing any anxiety concerning school, please let the classroom teacher, Mrs. Bartheld or myself know, so we can support you and your child.
                        I always look forward to this time of year coming back from vacation. Students return rested and eager for the second half of the year.  Mid-year assessing allows us to monitor student growth.  Every day students are being challenged with high-levels of learning.  I am confident this learning will help them to be successful in meeting their grade-level standards.  Thank you for sharing your child with us.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call. My office number is 509-573-7620.
 
Happy 2024!

Feliz año nuevo!
 
Dondequiera que mires, la gente se fija nuevas metas para el nuevo año. Al regresar de nuestras vacaciones de invierno, le recomiendo encarecidamente que se siente con su estudiante para hacer lo mismo. Enero marca nuestro punto medio del año. Durante nuestras conferencias de padres y maestros en octubre, los maestros explicaron los datos de la evaluación de comienzo de año de su hijo y explicaron los estándares de nivel de grado. En diciembre, se enviaron por correo las boletas de calificaciones del primer trimestre. Enero es un buen momento para establecer metas académicas y de comportamiento para la segunda mitad del año. Muchas veces escucho: “El maestro de mi hijo no envía tarea a casa. Las investigaciones muestran que la tarea más impactante es leer todas las noches y practicar operaciones matemáticas. Otro objetivo que puede ayudar a su hijo a tener éxito es recoger sus dispositivos electrónicos antes de acostarse. Esto permite que su hijo se despierte más descansado y limita el tiempo que pasa en las redes sociales. Otro objetivo a establecer es el de asistencia. Faltar sólo dos días al mes se considera ausentismo crónico. Extrañan a su hijo cuando no está en la escuela y no recibe la instrucción diaria. Si su hijo siente alguna ansiedad con respecto a la escuela, infórmeselo a la maestra del salón de clases, a la Sra. Bartheld o a mí, para que podamos apoyarlo a usted y a su hijo.
Siempre espero con ansias que llegue esta época del año al volver de vacaciones. Los estudiantes regresan descansados y ansiosos por la segunda mitad del año. La evaluación de mitad de año nos permite monitorear el crecimiento de los estudiantes. Todos los días, los estudiantes enfrentan el desafío de altos niveles de aprendizaje. Estoy seguro de que este aprendizaje les ayudará a alcanzar con éxito los estándares de su nivel de grado. Gracias por compartir a su hijo con nosotros. Si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud, no dude en llamar. El número de mi oficina es 509-573-7620.
 
¡Feliz 2024!
