Our small class sizes are ideal for building meaningful teacher/student relationships, a key to student success. We work in small groups, pairs, and whole group instruction. We take time to set goals and celebrate our successes.
Parents and families are a big part of our success. We send a folder home daily with work and a behavior report. A monthly calendar shows skills we will learn and upcoming events. We have a new approach to homework that we call “Homework Questions”. We send parents questions to ask their child on a weekly basis. This allows for meaningful conversations about our goals, allows children to talk about their learning and brings school into the home. We have a “Back to School” open house, parent/teacher conferences, a fall Harvest Festival, and a parent appreciation lunch all designed to involve our families.
