Dear Urbita Elementary Families,
Welcome to an exciting new 2014-2015 school year! All of us at Urbita Elementary School want to make this a successful year for your child. We are looking forward to working together with students, parents, and community members as we move towards implementing the new common core standards and 21st century learning goals. Your active support and cooperation, combined with our best professional efforts, will ensure academic success for your child.
I am proud of our staff and students and invite you to be involved in Urbita Elementary School. There is a spirit of cooperation and progress at our school that we want to share with you. The goal of our school is to provide each student with a challenging and rigorous curriculum appropriate to his/her academic level. We believe that every child can achieve academic success. To this end, every child will be provided with quality instructional experiences which recognize, support, and maintain high expectations for all students.
At Urbita Elementary, our mission is to be a Professional Learning Community where we:
*Meet the learning needs of all students
*Ensure a caring, safe and supportive learning environment
*Maintain high academic and citizenship expectations
*Optimize student learning through assessment and accountability
With parents and teachers working together as a team, towards the same goal, every child will succeed. In order to give each child the best opportunity for success, we ask that we keep children first in all that we do. If we accept and commit to our pledge to keep children first, it will demonstrate that education is our #1 priority. As a school-community with our common cause and core values, we will stand ready, willing, and able to do what is needed for educating our children. I know that Urbita is such a place.
As the Principal, you can expect that I will reach out to you and ask for your support, ideas, suggestions and involvement. I will encourage you to join our team, our school family so to speak, where preparing children for the future is our number one priority. I pledge to do my best to ensure that each child is challenged, nurtured, and provided with a safe and stimulating learning experience.
There will be many opportunities for you to contact me, please don’t hesitate or ever think that your comments or concern is unimportant. Through teamwork, open communication, and a dedication to continuous improvement, we can make Urbita a place where children love to be and enjoy learning.
I look forward to working together as partners in learning.
