Red Rocks Reflections, March 2019:

Report cards come home today, March 1 , and we celebrate the achievements of our students. As a part of our ongoing mission, our teachers are charged with engaging every student at an appropriate level of challenge. Each grade level team meets regularly with our coach to refine our teaching strategies to ensure all kids are growing towards end-of-year standards and this work continues into the third trimester.  

For grades 3-5, state testing is April 8-18, and we ask that you support this important opportunity for our students to “show what they know” by limiting outside appointments and such so that our kids can give it their best. Our teachers use the results each year to make improvements when compared to state expectations.

Speaking of improvements, at each monthly “SAC” meeting we review important metrics for our school, and principal growth is a part of that process. I was thrilled to shadow Mr. Brown’s 1st grade class this week to get a better feel for what our kids experience each day, and I’ll look forward to sharing more principal improvement trends at our next SAC, which is March 12 at 7PM.

We look forward to spring and watching our kids grow!  Go Raccoons! --Mr. I
