Hello Mountain Lions!!!

I hope you all enjoyed your extra long weekend. It was so fun to see so many of you at school last Thursday night for our Family Literacy Night. I can’t think of a better way to end the week than seeing so many families together enjoying pizza and learning about things that you can do at home to support the great things that your students are doing at school! Thank you all for your support… If we continue to work together, we can do GREAT things!!!

We had a great Monday Meeting this morning. Over the weekend, I went to see a movie called Saving Mr. Banks. It’s the story of how Walt Disney worked with the author of Mary Poppins to create the classic movie musical. In the movie, Walt Disney talks about one of his experiences while growing up, working in the cold winter weather to deliver newspapers for his father. As I watched the movie, I was inspired to think of all that Walt Disney has been able to create, not because he was born into privilege. He worked hard to achieve his dreams, and has inspired so many to follow his example and do the same!

Today I asked all of our students if they have a dream of what they can become when they grow up. I hope you will take some time this week to talk to your students about their dreams, and how they can work hard at home and at school to grow up to be anything they want to be.

Thanks again for all you do to support Majestic Elementary!!!

Hello Mountain Lions!!!

As many of you know, I was out all last week and was unable to wish all of you a happy new year. I hope you enjoyed the winter break, and are energized to make 2014 your best year ever! Here at Majestic Elementary, there is no doubt that this is going to be a GREAT year… It’s an exciting time to be a Mountain Lion!

January is often a time to set new goals, or to reevaluate our progress to make sure we are still on the right track to reach our fullest potential. Our teachers are doing just that here at Majestic! They are working hard to make sure that we see academic growth and high levels of student achievement over the next five months of school.

Each month our teachers are selecting three Language Arts concepts that they will be focusing on throughout the month. Our goal is to guarantee that every student in the class masters their “Guarantee 3” concepts. We are raising the bar at Majestic, and we can’t do it all alone… We need your help!

Here are some things you can do to help support your child’s learning:

Ask your students to tell you what their “Guarantee 3” concepts are this month.
Help your child understand the importance of being at school, and arriving on time everyday.
Work with your child’s teacher to monitor his/her progress.
Talk as a family about what it means to work hard to guarantee that they will reach their goals.
With your help, I have no doubt that we can help our students rise to new heights this year. Thank you for all of the work that you do to support our Mountain Lions. Working together… We are going to do GREAT things!!!
