It is hard to believe that we have already finished our first semester and report cards will go out on Friday, February 13, 2015. With the end of the semester, I hope you find time to come out and join us on February 12, 2014 at 5:30 pm for our Expanded Learning Expo and Showcase. This is not only an opportunity to come and check out the fascinating activities your children have been partaking in, but also a time to check out the other wonderful enrichments offered as part of our expanded learning day. Last year’s event was a HUGE success and we are looking forward to a second year of celebration.
Our winter benchmark assessment has concluded and we are in the process of working as a staff to analyze the data, set goals and take action. As part of this process, we have engaged students in conversation about their performance and areas of success and challenge. As a result, many have established goals which they are excited and invested in achieving. Goal setting gives students long-term vision and short-term motivation.
Our “Fall to Winter” growth progress results will be posted in the main office hallway. During your parent conferences and report card meetings take time to see if your child “met” his or her established goal and discuss grade level progress. Teachers use multiple measures to determine students’ progress towards the standards so be sure to ask questions to find out your child’s individual growth based on these measures in given subjects.
We believe that children receive the best education when you and our dedicated staff work as a team. It’s a parent’s enthusiasm, support, and involvement that inspire children to do their best and a teacher’s ability to teach what they need to learn that truly make a difference. You are as important to your children’s education as we are at Charles Carroll School 46. Please find ways to support our efforts and assist us in making your child’s learning experience the best it can be. Together we can achieve great things!
Our dedicated PTA members continue to look for ways to support our school’s fundraising. This fundraising helps to support wonderful classroom and school wide opportunities such as our Fall Meet ‘n Greet, Artist in Residence Program, and June Picnic. One fundraising opportunity our PTA would like to promote is the Target’s Take Charge of Education program. A flier was sent home and information will be on our website. It shares how our school can benefit when you shop at Target. Our PTA also continues to promote the Tops in Education program and soon they will be supporting class competitions to see what classrooms raise the most “box tops.”
One final note, it is recruitment time! Please be sure to let your neighbors, friends, and family know about the wonderful opportunities waiting for their children at Charles Carroll School #46. Feel free to invite them to our Expo Night and Open House. Thank you for your continued commitment to our school and to your child’s education.
