Dear Apollo families,
“This is the final e-news of the year!” I say this at the end of each calendar year and each time I still can’t wrap my head around how fast time flies by!
We started the school day today with an all school holiday sing-a-long that included songs from around the world and were representative of multiple cultures. It was so wonderful to see the students singing all of the songs they have practiced in Music class over the past few weeks as well as to hear the Apollo choir masterfully share their songs with the school too!
We have accomplished and grown a lot in the past few months and looking back on the accomplishments of 2018, Apollo is plentiful!
Last year I shared that I would be working with our teachers specialists to strategize how to better provide parents with information that clearly defines what and how we are practicing in our academic learning as well as what we are assessing and how parents can practice and/or check for learning as we build our systematic learning partnerships. As I mentioned to the teachers, “Not all of our parents were educated in the US system and there are times when they are not aware of the expectations of the assignments given or how an assignment was graded and our goal should be to provide more explanation.” I’m proud of the teachers and specialists for filling their websites with more information about how parents can help their students become better readers, writers, and thinkers. The Apollo staff is very dedicated to building a deeper partnership between home and school and glad to share we are moving in a great direction!
As we close out 2018, I want to thank each person associated with Apollo for your continued support and contribution to our students’ experiences! I’m not alone when I say I happen to think Apollo is a great school going great places as we Prepare Our Students to Launch each and every day!
I wish you all a wonderful holiday season with safe travels and warm homecomings, and I look very forward to sharing 2019 with our Apollo students and families!
