It is hard to believe we are already in the second quarter of the school year! Report cards are on their way this Friday and conferences will be taking place over the next several weeks. This year has been filled with transition as we continue to familiarize ourselves with the new PA standards. The level of rigor for students has definitely increased and teachers are working hard to bridge the gaps between the old standards and the new ones. I have added information about these new standards on our website under the "Our School" tab at the top. I will add other information that I come across as well. In the meantime, I believe you may see scores that are unusual for your student. That is a direct result of the rigor I mentioned above. The good news is that I have seen growth from the beginning of the year and I believe students will continue to grow and adapt to the challenges of the more difficult requirements. This does not change our goals as a district of building. We will continue to work on providing quality instruction and analyzing data to see where each child's strengths and weaknesses are in an effort to make our students grow. If you have specific questions about these changes or anything else, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. As always, thank you for all that you do!
