Hello Mountain Lions!!!
Can you believe that this is the last Monday Minute of 2014? Sometimes time flies faster than I realize, but as I reflect back on what we have been able to accomplish over the past year I am absolutely amazed.
I can’t reflect on this past year without acknowledging the incredible staff at Majestic Elementary. This group of outstanding educators has accepted the challenge to increase student achievement at all levels, and it has not been easy. We have established expectations for student behavior and school wide procedures, adapted to a brand new curriculum, changed the structure of our grade level teams, held ourselves accountable to school and district leaders, and used ongoing data to perfect our practices. We have also changed the physical appearance of our hallways and classrooms, added new teachers, and introduced the five PRIDE Values.
This work has taken determination and focus along with many long days and late nights. And even though it has been the hardest work that we have ever done, our teachers have stayed positive and continue to give their best day after day. I want to celebrate the AMAZING teachers at Majestic Elementary. I am so lucky to work with such an outstanding group of educators.
I also want to thank all of you parents, grandparents, guardians, and role models for your support in helping us reach new levels of academic success. We couldn’t do it without YOU!!!
This week’s PRIDE value is: EMPOWERED
Our Mountain Lion Pledge says, “I am Empowered: I have the ability to accomplish anything I put my mind to and will not make excuses.” I can’t think of a better way to finish out the year. We hope that as you look forward to a new year and a bright future, you will feel the power to make changes in your life that will lead you to a better YOU!
6th Grade- Congratulations to Mrs. Meade’s class! She couldn’t wait to share with me the data from their last literacy benchmark test. I am proud to announce that 90% of her students demonstrated progress from Benchmark 1 to Benchmark 2. Keep up the GREAT work!!!
