Welcome to my blog! I will update this space at least once a month to provide you with important information about Mexico Elementary School. Thanks for visiting!
I just wanted to take a minute to let you know about some of the interesting and important things happening here at Mexico Elementary. This school year is off to a great start and I have had an amazing time getting to know your children.
First of all, our new Reading-First program is up and running. Teachers have been busy working with students, attending staff development and analyzing student data. They are to be commended for all of their hard work. Remember, our goal is to have 100% of our students reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade. I have had the pleasure of speaking with many of you about this initiative and I thank you for your support.
As many of you know, character education is very important to us here at Mexico Elementary. Each month we focus on one virtue. We talk about the virtue of the month during morning announcements, during midweek meeting and during lessons where appropriate. The virtue of the month in September was "respect." As a way of showing respect for our school, we instituted a "hats off in school" policy. Students are now expected to remove hats, hoods, bandannas or other head coverings when they are in school. This policy has been very well received by students and they are well on their way to earning a special "hat day" sometime this semester.
We are also looking forward to two special October events. At the end of the month we will be inviting you in for parent-teacher conferences. Conferences will be held on October31 and on November 1. We will also be holding our annual Halloween parade on Tuesday, October 31.
Lastly, I want to remind you that we here at Mexico Elementary are doing our best each and every day to provide your children with a comprehensive education in a safe, nurturing learning environment. If you ever have any questions about what goes on here at Mexico Elementary please feel free to contact me or your child's teacher.
