A Monday Hello from Mrs. MacQueen

Happy New Year!

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday break. It was fabulous to see our children return to school last Wednesday, tired but excited to see their friends and share stories of their vacation. I was also happy because I had missed the students and staff.

Our WES ROCKS! program will continue in 2013 and we can't wait to celebrate the successes of our students. Several grades have almost filled their jars and are planning and thinking about what they would like as a class reward.

Starting this month we will be introducing the concept of "outstanding scholars" and talking to the students about what it means to produce quality work. I'll be meeting with every class to discuss these ideas and together we'll develop a quality work plan. Students who demonstrate the characteristics of a scholar will present their work to me and if we deem the work quality, he/she will receive a certificate and have the work displayed on our Quality Work bulletin board.

Giving our children the best education is important and raising the academic bar is part of this. We need to show our students that with hard work, anything is possible for them.
