School Announcements
EAGLE NEWS FROM THE PRINCIPAL
October 2016
The first two months of school are over and we are moving forward. We are looking forward to a year of learning and partnership. We are committed to helping every student succeed in school. Specifically, I want to share some important focus areas we will be addressing in the upcoming months. We want to clearly communicate our beliefs about partnering with families. We would like to share some of our ideas and invite your input on this important topic.
At Edison, we believe it is important for families and schools to work together and share responsibility for student success. We very much value family membersí expertise about their children.† Families know a student best and we can learn from you. Also, we want our students to know the importance of schools and families together supporting their work at school.† As part of this goal, we have developed some two-way communication tools and shared activities. You will be hearing more about these in the next few weeks.†
  • Classroom two-way communication tools (these vary by teacher and grade/department) so that you and your studentís teacher(s) can share successes and concerns in an ongoing manner. This allows for early intervention if your student is struggling.
  • School expectations for homework, behavior and learning communicated to you by your student. We want students to know and understand that we are working with you to help them succeed.
  • Different learning opportunities for families and staff on various topics throughout the year. Some of these opportunities will be at school and others at various places in our community.
  • Please share your thoughts with us frequently; if you leave us your name and contact information, we will personally respond.
In addition, we are continuing with Response to Intervention (RtI), which provides a continuum of support for students who may be struggling in academic or behavioral areas.† RtI focuses on addressing concerns when they first begin in the classroom, so that learning support can be implemented in a timely manner.† In RtI, families and teachers team together in intervention planning, monitoring, and decision-making as to needed student support. If you have concerns about your student, please share those with the classroom teacher so you can together discuss intervention planning for home and school.† Similarly, your studentís teacher(s) will be working with you if he/she sees your child struggling.† If you would like more information about the RtI process, you may contact your studentís teacher(s).
The Edison elementary and secondary teachers look forward to meeting with each studentís parents at the Parent / Teacher Conferences on October 5th and 6th.† Elementary teachers have scheduled conferences whereas parents of secondary students are strongly encouraged to visit their studentís teachers on a walk-in basis from 2-6pm.† Please call the office if you have any questions regarding the conferences.
Sincerely,
Terry Henderson
Principal
