Parents and Families,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! West End is a Title 1 Schoolwide Model school for the seventh year in a row. Through Federal Title 1 funds, our school is able to provide additional reading and math instructional supplies for the classroom. We provide additional training for our teachers to become experts in their fields as well as social and emotional support to our children from a family liaison and Preschool Transition Facilitator. Title 1 promotes lower class size, a Parent Resource Center full of materials parents can check out for free to take home and use with their child, extra parenting workshops, and opportunities to participate in "out of the box" type educational activities to promote healthy academic and social development.
During the first nine weeks of the school year, you will receive a copy of the 2016-2017 Title 1 School/Parent Compact. Please review that carefully, sign, and return to school as soon as possible. We need 100% of these returned! A copy of the current Title 1 plan is located in the front office.
We hope you will join us for the many activities we have planned for parents and families this school year. Please be on the lookout for information coming home about "Menu of Options" Day/Night, "Lunch and Learn" workshops, and many other opportunities to take part in your child's education. Please plan to join us for this year's family nights/workshops if your schedule will allow. YOU make the difference!
Lastly, please try to visit the Parent Resource Center in room 103. You may check out math and reading materials to take home and practice skills with your child(ren). We have added some new Reading and Math games this year and have new resources for our Spanish speaking families to assist them in learning English. We also have computers set up so that you can check your child's grades, sign up for an email account, or create a resume and apply for jobs.
I look forward to speaking with you then!
