Dear Parents, Guardians, Community Partners and School # 19 Family,
What an exciting week we had last week. Our students read 714 books in 2 weeks, we celebrated International Walk to School Day , and our teachers were honored by Wal-Mart for the work they do with your children in the classroom. Kudos goes out to Ms. Tanisha Grant, one of our parents, who nominated us for The Teachers Reward Program.
Well, we are challenging our students to read 1,000 books this month. Parents we need your help.
We are asking you to read with your child every day and keep track of what they are reading on a book log or piece of paper.
Your support with this goal will improve your child’s level of literacy growth. We will also be sharing vocabulary words from ELA and Math with you on our web site for Unit one of the modules for grades K- 8th grade. We are asking that you teach your children the vocabulary words ahead of time before they learn the material. Having conversations about your child’s education can be meaningful and create an increase in academic growth for your child.
Finally , we need you!!!!! We are looking for PTO positions to be filled . We need an active PTO. We cannot do this work alone .
Your support is needed. Please call Ms. Alicia Bell if you are interested in becoming The President, Vice President, Secretary, or Treasurer for our Parent Teacher Organization. You can call 328-7454. We would like to have officers in place by next Friday.
Hello School #19 Community! September has gone by so quickly and we’re already in the month of October. Our middle school students completed the first round of their NWEAs and have identified goals for the second round, which will take place in January. Overall, our middle school attendance is looking good with our 6th graders leading the way with a rate of 92% followed by our 8th graders with a rate of 90% and our 7th graders with a rate of 87%. In an effort to keep our parents informed about the performance of their child, we will be sending progress reports at the midpoint of each marking period. This way, parents can work with teachers to ensure that any issues are addressed before the end of each marking period. At the end of each marking period, we like to recognizing our middle school students for their accomplishments at our middle school awards assembly. The assembly for the first marking period will be held on November 20th at 9:30 a.m. Hope to see you there!
