Lots More to Do while Maintaining Enthusiasm!

Our students have lots of challenges ahead in each of their respective grades, yet we need to maintain the energy and enthusiasm required to ensure that they succeed in achieving our high standards. One document that keeps us on the high road is our list of Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLR's). This important document is the result of a collaborative effort by our teachers that clarifies our Mission and prioritizes and synthesizes our many goals and objectives. I think it helps parents understand that what we ask our students to do has direction and purpose, as it states clearly what we expect them to accomplish by the end of eighth grade. Please take a look. It's important for you to understand, "be on board" in support of our ESLR's, and commit to our shared responsibility for each child's progress.
