St. Elmo Dragon Gazette
September 2019 Parent Newsletter
Good Afternoon, Parents!
Over the next few weeks, we will be focusing on "creativity and divergent thinking." We will explain to students the following skills and their importance - risk-taking, curiosity, adaptability, and originality. These and other 21st Century Skills will continue to be developed in our classrooms throughout the school year. As a Gifted facility, it is important that we constantly raise the rigor, focus on the development of individual talents, and challenge our students on a daily basis.
St. Elmo is also excited about being part of the final cohort of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Systems (PBIS) for the school district. The student expectations are defined later in this email. Teachers will teach lessons which are directly related to the behaviors that we wish to see from our Gifted students.
I am thrilled to be at St. Elmo each day this year. Education has always been my passion and I look forward to serving your children. Please contact me at any time if I can be of assistance.
