Dear ES Parents,

Thank you for attending your child’s recent Parent Teacher Conference – PTC. We strive for 100% participation because we know how important it is for your child’s success that we work together on their behalf. We work at making sure important information is shared and future goals are set for their success. I am sure that after your conference you feel the way I do working with our talented staff. We take pride in the competence and expertise of our teachers and staff members. We are also thankful to our amazing Book Fair helpers, Ms. Cathy Bass, Mrs, Lim and Mrs. Ji who worked many hours on behalf of our teachers and students.

Our SIS teachers are busy in addition to planning excellent lessons and teaching every minute of the day, they are also learning more and more to make their instruction the best it can be. We continue our work on “Differentiated Instruction” and on English as an Additional Language strategies. Literacy continues to be emphasized across grade levels with our Reading and Writing Workshop methods. In an effort to become more sensitive to the needs of all our children, we stared our “Buddy Bench” this month as a way to include everyone at recess. Please continue to check our website for calendar updates, minutes from the EPC meetings and other school events.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us!

Mr. Art
ES Principal.
