Hello Discovery Families,
I have three updates to share. First, I want to congratulate the fifth graders for their fabulous participation at Camp Colman last week. They listened well and represented Discovery with a great deal of pride. I also want to thank the parent volunteers for their support in assisting and caring for students. They were outstanding. And of course, I want to thank the teachers for their enthusiasm and support. You all helped to create many wonderful memories for our fifth graders!
Secondly, the YMCA play instructors began their work last Wednesday and Friday. The kids really enjoyed the activities so we feel this is a strong recess. We learned just yesterday morning that the Y instructors cannot attend this week due to previously planned commitments. In the future, we hope to have earlier notification of such schedule changes. The good news is that the weather is beautiful this week which makes any kind of outdoor activity more enjoyable.
Lastly, you should know that our Leadership Team determined to focus our new School Improvement Plan on Reading. Following are our new SIP goals:
All Students Goal: All students will be at standard, or improve at least one level, on the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) in English Language Arts (ELA).
Gap Goal: Current and exited Learning Assistance Program (LAP) students will meet standard, or improve at least one level, on the SBA in ELA.
Our Professional Development session tomorrow will provide teacher information and tools to help them determine the interventions students need to support each one of them at their instructional reading level. I believe it will be a very practical session.
That’s it for now. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
