Dear McLoughlin Families,
2017 is off to a great start! We welcomed students to the New Year by reviewing and re-teaching our schoolwide expectations, the Core Four of Respect, Responsibility, Effort and Safety. Our message for the New Year is focused on putting actions behind our values. It is not good enough to know our values and expectations, we all must LIVE them.
As a staff, we continue to stay focused on learning for all of our students. Our work is focused on giving students challenging opportunities to learn and demonstrate their understanding of our Common Core State Standards. The students will be taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment this year starting in April, and we want them to have every opportunity for success.
Please continue to support your student by getting them to school every day on-time and ready to learn. High rates of school attendance are correlated with higher grades, higher achievement, and eventually higher graduation rates. Help your student establish the habits that will support their success for years to come.
Thanks for you continued support as we work with your students.
