Welcome Letter – July 2021
Dear Parents/ Guardians,
It is indeed a pleasure to welcome all our returning students and our new students to the 2021-2022 school year! At this point with the covid-19 pandemic slowing down, we are not clear yet on the different learning modalities that will be offered. As soon as we know, you will surely be informed. Teachers and staff are excited and look forward to sharing many academic experiences with our students. It is with great pleasure that I am announcing the arrival of 2 international teachers from the Philippines who will be joining our staff this upcoming school year. As we partner with our families, we will work together to provide your student with the best possible education and educational experience. We plan to continue with the implementation of our Positive Behavior Support System (PBIS) Program to productively help our students with discipline issues regardless of the learning option they chose. Also, given the fact that our scholars have been out of school for almost six months, more than ever before, we want to establish a strong partnership with our families so we can work together to improve our students’ academic and social skills.

Instructional Start Time: 8:00 a.m.

We will continue to diligently and systematically implement programs and initiatives that will assist in providing a rigorous EDUCATION for our students. We will be implementing a new Literacy Plan designed to foster excellence in student’s ability to read with fluency and comprehension will be enhanced even further. Formative assessments will continue to provide information relative to the individual strengths and areas in need of IMPROVEMENT, for our students. Differentiated instruction will continue to provide individualized and tailored instruction for all students.
Lunch applications will be sent home the first week of school. The lunch application needs to be completed by every family every year, even if your students are not going to eat a school lunch.
