Parent Input for 2016-2017 Class Placement
Dear Discovery Families,
Welcome to the 2016-17 school year. It has been wonderful to welcome all of our students back and embrace those students and families who are new to Discovery. Custodians, Secretaries and Teachers worked many hours to prepare the school and classrooms for you. Our goal and hope is that each Discovery child feels welcomed and positive about the year ahead.
We have a new math curriculum this year in Issaquah elementary schools, titled Eureka! I am proud to inform you that every Discovery classroom teacher attended training over the summer to implement Eureka! In fact, three Discovery teachers were selected to be teacher trainers throughout the district. They are: Marissa Sampsel (2nd grade), Brian Schenkman (4th Grade), and Kim Hand (5th grade). Teachers appreciate the emphasis Eureka! places on developing conceptual understanding of mathematics, while emphasizing mathematic fluency. You will learn more about Eureka! at our Curriculum Nights (grades K-2, September 14th; grades 3-5, September 15th).
I am sure many of you are making the adjustment from summer to fall schedules. As you think about establishing routines for the school year, we encourage one of them to be asking your child about their day at school and what they learned. Ask them to explain their thoughts about their learning. Also, you may find it helpful to establish a time for homework, which should range in time from 10 to 45 minutes depending upon age.
There is much to look forward to, and much to learn. As always, let me know if you have any questions. I wish your child, and you, a successful year ahead.
