We are so excited to be back at school and into our everyday routine of learning. We have had a great start to the year with everyone embracing our theme, “We Are All Connected”. We look forward to a wonderful year with our teachers and students discovering and cultivating what makes each and every person special and how we can positively affect our community.

Each morning, we start our day with Morning Meeting.  You are always invited to share in our daily Morning Meeting to hear the students share the many ways they are earning fish throughout our school day and at home. We will be continuing our daily educational elements during which students share new ideas, showcase exemplary work, and recognize others for their contributions to our school and community. Ask your child to tell you about his/her favorite part of Morning Meeting.

The important work that we do on a daily basis at school is reflected in our mission for the school, “Our school community works to ensure every child is safe, happy, and learning at high levels.” As always, our teachers collaborate to plan, prepare, and implement a standards-based curriculum which helps support each child toward mastery of the goals. Teachers will be including important information about current skills being taught and assessed in their weekly classroom memos. Classwork and assessments sent home on a regular basis will help you keep track of your child’s progress. Parents can also access the Student Progress Center to view teacher websites and grades in each subject area.

Each teacher and grade level will make decisions to thoughtfully and judiciously assign homework, if necessary, to help support our students in learning. This homework may include reading at home with your child, completing unfinished classwork, and/or fluency exercises. If you feel your child needs more practice at home, please contact your child’s teacher for developmentally appropriate ideas.

Our staff is dedicated to meeting the needs of every child, every day. In order for us all to do that, we encourage and need your input. Parents are an essential part of our vision for our school, “Together, we create a community of learners who are challenged, empowered, valued, and inspired.” You are the first teachers of our children, and being actively involved in your child’s education is an important contributor to your child’s success. The most important way you can be involved is by maintaining open and ongoing communication with your child’s teacher and other important adults in his/her life. We hope you can join us at our PTA Meeting and Open House on Tuesday, September 17 at 6:00 PM. When parents, teachers, and administrators work together, our kids thrive!

It is our privilege to work with each of you and your children. We appreciate you sharing your treasures with us each day. Thank you for your continued support and willingness to work together to ensure your child is safe, happy, and learning at high levels with our Mandeville Elementary family.

Yours in education,

Chantelle O. Smith
