February 2, 2015
This year is going by so quickly that my head is spinning! We still have so much to learn and explore and discover with your children! Thankfully, the staff in the testing grades, 3-8, maintains their belief system that out of all of the ways we help our children to succeed on tests designed by outside sources, the most important way to succeed in school is to be inspired to LEARN. Our staff starts in Pre-Kindergarten working to help your children OWN their learning- and to internalize a desire to learn. Ken Robinson, author of THE ELEMENT, writes,
“Learning happens in the minds and souls of individuals….”
We take all state testing very seriously- so much so that we teach your children how to read for purpose, write for purpose, do mathematics with purpose, apply scientific concepts with purpose, do art, play music, and work hard at sports with purpose. All of these skills combined will support the learning lives of your children, and in turn get them through testing season!
By the way- Homecoming and all activities was postponed to February 6! There is a problem with the heat in the Rec Center. Fingers crossed it is resolved soon!
