Dear Musick Families,
I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break. As August quickly comes to a close we are eager to welcome your children back to Musick Elementary & Preschool for an outstanding 2018-19 school year. Our administrative, custodial, and secretarial staff have been working throughout the summer months preparing our school for another amazing school year. Teachers have been creating learning spaces that will inspire our scholars throughout the year ahead. Musick absolutely shines with an excitement for learning and growing! I encourage all of you to attend Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 5th, 2018 to meet your child’s teacher and tour our campus.
Musick take great pride in creating an educational atmosphere where students can learn in a caring and creative environment. Together our staff encourages students to engage in a lifelong love of learning. As we focus on student achievement, we will provide a variety of academic and educational experiences that promote student growth and learning throughout the year. In our newly developed team environment teachers will regularly collaborate, analyze data, plan instruction, and develop common assessments to ensure student achievement is attained throughout each grade level. During the upcoming school year I encourage you to take an active role in your child’s learning. Parent involvement plays a critical role in our school’s success. Ways to support and increase your child’s academic success include:
- Make attendance a PRIORITY including limiting tardiness and absences
- Check Class DOJO regularly to stay informed of what is happening in your child’s classroom
- Communicate often with your child’s teacher
- Read with your child at least 20 minutes a day
- Limit television and social media, encourage outside play
- Review the school day with your child
The staff and I are looking forward to an educationally rewarding school year with you and your children. We hope that you will visit and volunteer often.
With Leopard Pride,
