Principal Notes...

Time sure flies as the saying goes! It’s hard to believe we are approaching the end of the school year and I’m writing the final Newsletter of 2016/2017 school year.

It’s been another good year, blessed with many opportunities for student growth and learning. We continue NWEA testing with our scholars, and our work at empowering them through individual academic goal setting is proving beneficial. We are currently in the middle of M-STEP assessment as well. Both of these assessments are now completely on-line.

Our parents continue to be the glue which cements our Upper Elementary together. Your work at advocating for our children, following through with challenging disciplinary expectations, and supporting homework and learning at home, truly make this a fun and rewarding community effort. We would not be successful without you, our MCC family.

I continue to be amazed every day at the awesome responsibility we have in educating our children. I am equally amazed at the dedication of our staff in adapting to an ever changing educational world. The professionalism and efforts of our teachers certainly add to a culture of compassion, competence, courage and humility.

There are, and will continue to be challenges we will face, but these opportunities are ripe for learning as well. By working together as a collective educational community, we can best serve our scholars. You are valued and make the biggest difference.

Please have a wonderful and safe summer. It is also important to try to continue with some type of daily/weekly reading and flash card review process. Research shows that by continuing to work on academic activities during school breaks, students enter the next grade optimally prepared.

Stop in and see me anytime, or call with questions you may have. Also note that many upcoming end of the year activities in this letter.

It’s a pleasure and a blessing to serve as your principal, and I look forward to our educational future with great hope and expectation.

 

Sincerely,

Mr. Kimes
