Note From The Principal

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break and that the first two weeks of the new year have been filled with good health and happiness. Our first couple weeks back together as a school family have gone quite well. We have reconnected with one another, reminded students of our building procedures, welcomed a few new students and are back to our learning routines. The time between now and our next break is busy with students working to master new concepts and continuing to build upon their skills.

I want to remind all our parents that each student is expected to read at least 20 minutes a night at home (parents reading to their child also counts). Reading is key to success for all students and will help them be successful no matter the content area. If you have questions on how to best assist your child with their reading, please do not hesitate to contact your
child’s teacher or one of our school’s interventionists. Our staff is devoted to working as a team with all our parents.

As you know, Michigan weather is always changing. Please check to make sure that our district has the correct contact information on file so that you will continue to receive closure information throughout the winter. Please continue to stay informed by reading our building newsletter and all communication you receive from your child’s teacher as well. If you have questions or a specific need, please be sure to connect with your child’s teacher or our office for support.


Your partner in education,
Jason Snyder

PERSONALIZED
LEARNING

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without an understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
