Parents and Community Members,
I am looking forward to the start of an amazing 2017-2018 school year at Point Pleasant Elementary, home of the Panthers. This summer has been very busy with familiarizing myself to our school while also trying to begin the process of researching ways to build upon the effective practices already in place. I look forward to working with each of you and I am very grateful for the opportunity to be at Point Pleasant Elementary.
Utilizing the academic action steps of our School Improvement Plan, we will continue to support the Superintendent’s goal of ensuring that every student meets or exceeds standards as achievement gaps are eliminated. In order to reach this goal, we will focus on Guided Reading, Standards of Mathematical Practices, and an increase in writing frequency across all subject areas.
My goal for the year is to build positive relationships, a collaborative culture, and an instructional focus that accelerates student growth and achievement. I am looking forward to building positive relationships with each of you and working in collaboration as we support the growth and achievement of our Point Pleasant Panthers. Together we will develop our Panthers into better Readers, Writers, and Mathematicians!
