Note from the Principal
Tuesday, April 17, 2018 11:00 AM

 

Dear Families,
 
Many of you have reached out to me with questions regarding our 2018-19 budget. I want to again express my gratitude for your questions, honest input, and advocacy for our school and community! You may have heard about the resolution passed at the school board meeting last Tuesday evening. Our budget allocation will not be impacted by the board's decision. In light of this, I would like to clarify a piece that I realized I neglected to mention in last week's note. You may know that we have had a part-time Advanced Differentiation Specialist (ADS) for the last three years. Going into next school year, we will no longer have this position. This was another area that we had to make the difficult choice to eliminate, along with our math and reading interventionists mentioned in last week's note. As I stated last week, this reduction, along with the others, will require us to be creative about how we use our resources to meet the needs of all our students. 
Over the next few weeks, we will be working to finalize plans for next school year, and I am confident that we will continue to provide our students with a well-rounded and academically rigorous education. 

Spring testing is off to a great start! Students are working hard and putting forth their
best effort to show what they know and what they have learned this school year.
Although we know that these tests do not give us the whole picture of a child, they do
provide us with some important information to help us make instructional and
programmatic decisions.
 
Please make sure to check out the announcements and important dates in this issue of the bulletin. As always, feel free to reach out to me with any questions that may arise.
Sincerely,
Ana Bartl
