Hello Lee Families,
I hope you have had a restful and rejuvenating summer! We are looking forward to another great school year with our dedicated staff and enthusiastic learners!
As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us--the school and the community--must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for all our students. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.
With that in mind, you are invited to be an active member of Lee School. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member on the PTO, help with special school events, or on a school committee, you are encouraged to be involved! Research on student success clearly connects academic success to a high level of parent involvement in their child’s education.
Continuing with our goal of improving academic outcomes and high student achievement, Lee School will incorporate the core values of the school: Respectful, responsible learners. Using these as our guiding principles, each child will be encouraged and supported in working to his/her full potential academically, socially, and emotionally.
In order to achieve these goals, there are several ways that family members of our school community can work together with Lee staff:
- Send your child to school every day on time. School starts promptly at 9:00. Students can begin arriving at 8:45.
- Make sure your child gets eight hours of sleep each night. This will help your child come to school ready to be a successful learner.
- Establish a routine for studying. Work with your child to find a quiet place to read and do homework. Establishing a consistent time and place to work at home will help to build great routines.
- Keep in touch with your child’s teacher via email, telephone, notes, or letters. Your child will be even more successful at school when he/she understands that we are all working together!
- Celebrate your child’s success with verbal praise, no matter how small it may seem. This will help keep your child enthusiastic about learning and proud of their hard work.
I look forward to seeing everyone!
