Welcome back to a new and exciting school year! As the first day of school has come and gone, Schiesher Elementary is slowly becoming our home again for the next 9 months. It has been a wonderful beginning! Our opening few days have been great for kids. Students and teachers are getting to know one another and settling into the daily routines. As we “ROAR” into September teachers and staff are working diligently to launch into quality teaching and learning while establishing expectations for behavior and procedures. Our goal in September is to create an environment where kids can grow in their independence and problem solving abilities. All too often we jump in and attempt to rescue children at the first sign of a struggle or frustration. Like you we also want the best for our students. However, research now shows that our “over-protection, over-connection” style may do more harm than good. So in order to decrease their struggles or frustrations, during the first few weeks we will be spending quality time establishing rituals and routines and building students’ self-confidence. These experiences will provide opportunities for them to think for themselves and grow in their abilities to be independent problem solvers. We are anticipating a year filled with many successes for our Schiesher Lions. Please remember that your child’s education is a partnership and you are welcome at Schiesher Elementary. Communication and collaboration are key ingredients to your child’s success. Do not hesitate to call if you have questions or concerns during the year. The Parent/Student Handbook and teacher websites have a wealth of information.
We welcomed many new staff members! We acknowledge the difference they will make at Schiesher Elementary: third grade teacher – Rachel Dawson, art teacher – Jim Campian, Mark Melka - librarian, Kristine Paulsen – instructional specialist, aides – Brenden Eaton and Elisabeth Hutto. We welcome back our speech pathologist – Theresa Lauten after a year off with her daughter!
As stated earlier, it’s been a fantastic start to the school year, and I look forward to a great year! I also look forward to working with you in partnership as we embark on your child’s educational journey!
