Updates from your Proud Principal…

We have moved into the New Year with enthusiasm! January was a fantastic month as evidenced by the hard work of our staff and students. I hope that February will bring the same dedication.   Be sure to take a look at the calendar on the right, to mark special dates.  School will be closed on the 4th for a special election and open on the 17th for a snow make up day.

Report Cards will be distributed on February 6th. Second quarter report cards will include grades from special areas as well as comments from your child’s teacher. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s teacher to set up a conference.

Our virtue for Quarter 3 is Responsibility. Please talk with your child at home about the importance of showing Responsibility. Students that demonstrate this virtue earn Dojo points and can receive a special award at the Proud Panda Assembly. 

MAP testing will be happening soon. Students in grades K-5 will take the online assessment to display their skills in math and reading. Students in grades 1-5, took this test in the fall. Our SWAG goals are to beat their previous score. Please see the schedule on page two, to insure your child can be present and prepared for this important test

We are continuing to utilize Class Dojo as our school-wide behavior system. It is a great way to receive notices on your child’s behavior, communicate with the teacher, and receive updates on events that are happening at school. We currently have 600 parents that are signed up for Dojo!! That’s amazing!  If you have not already signed up, please contact your child’s teacher. I will be sharing important information through Class Dojo all year!

Our theme for the school year is SWAG, Students with Academic Goals. Your children made a goal for the month of December. Please ask your child if they reached their goal. They will receive a SWAG prize from me each time they reach their goal!

Again, I want to thank our staff, students, and families for their engagement and support of everything that we do here at Essex Elementary. We definitely have SWAG!
