Welcome back to school! Although the summer seemed short, we have had a smooth opening to the 2015-2016 school year! Our staff and students were excited to reconvene and begin new learning experiences together. Our focus continues to be reading, mathematics, science, and social studies.
If you are new to GHES, you will soon learn about the Independent Reading Leveling Assessment (IRLA) framework that helps to motivate students to become thoughtful, intentional, independent readers. Those students who made the Summer Reading Challenge will have a special celebration with me. As we begin this year-long journey, I want to encourage you to partner with us so that your student(s) get the maximum benefits of the instructional programs we offer. I also encourage you to become a registered volunteer. The PTA is in constant need of registered volunteers to assist with big events like the Fall Festival.
Thank you for joining us for Back-to-School Night. If you have questions about the Title I presentation that I made, feel free to contact me. Also, after they are approved, we will post the School Improvement Plan and Parent Involvement Plan on our website. As mentioned earlier, we will make every effort to keep our website current. You may access it at http://schools.smcps.org/ghes/. We will also send home a calendar and monthly newsletter. The 2015-2016 school year promises to be full of adventure and excitement for your child(ren)! Thank you for partnering with us. Welcome back!
