Dear Arbor Families,
It is hard to believe that the school year is almost over. We are going to finish strong and make sure every student learns every day. Mr. Hardaway and I reminded the students about being Respectful, Responsible and Ready to Learn. We will not tolerate disrespect or physical altercations of any kind and will be giving consequences to students who are not following the discipline code. All children should have the opportunity to learn without interference. Parents, we appreciate your support.
Your children have been participating in many state-mandated tests this year. We are very proud of them! They showed patience and effort during testing times, and there were many testing times! We know that standardized tests do not always show what makes each child special. They do not show how well your child can dance or paint a picture. They do not show how well your child takes care of his/her siblings. They do not show what a great athlete your child is or how good he/she is at telling jokes. They do not show what a great smile your child has and how kind he/she is to the next-door elderly neighbor.
Standardized test scores do not show that your child is trustworthy, kind or thoughtful and that he/she tries their best every day. The scores will tell you something, but they will not tell you everything. It is important to keep our eyes on the whole child. As always, it is a privilege to educate your children. Remember! The 2015-16 school year starts early this year. The first day back for students is Monday, August 17, 2015.
Mrs. Simenc and Mr. Hardaway
