Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome back to another great school year! I hope that you have thoroughly enjoyed your summer. As you know, there have been several changes. I am pleased and honored to return to Churchland Elementary. Additionally, I am also excited that Mrs. Joi Quinnerly has joined our team as the Assistant Principal. The teachers and staff are looking forward to working with our families and community to provide quality education for each of our children. Although the summer has been short, it has not hampered the enthusiasm of our incredible staff. They have already been hard at work preparing lessons, materials, and classrooms. They are dedicated and willing to do “whatever it takes” to make sure that each child is successful this school year.
I encourage you to be involved with your child’s education as much as possible. Your child needs your support. Please consider joining the Churchland Elementary School PTA. Working with teachers and administrators will ensure that your child will have quality educational experiences. Please know that the Churchland Elementary Staff is confident that your child will benefit from the excellent instruction and learning environment provided at our school.
As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success, and I want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. I ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
1) Attends school daily, arrives on time, and is ready for the day’s learning experiences
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
6)Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school
This year, we will have our Meet and Greet for students in grades 1-6 on Thursday, September 1, 2016 from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. The Kindergarten Meet and Greet will be held on Friday, September 2, 2016 from 10:00a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Please come out and meet your child’s teacher! We look forward to a successful school year. Should you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
