It is hard to believe we are already in December. Our staff continues to work relentlessly to support the education of each child at Smith Renaissance. I want to take the opportunity to thank the community for continuing to be involved in your students education. As a parent, I know the days away from school can be a challenge for families as they work to keep children engaged in meaningful learning activities. And, because of the calendar change from November 25th-January 7th there are more days away from school than at school! We ask that during these weeks away from school you encourage your student to read an hour a day and write short summaries of their favorite television shows. Students can practice their math while cooking, going to the store or reading advertisements followed by some questions by an adult.
At school, we have hired three additional instructional paraprofessionals to support your child in getting the most individualized attention possible. Also, in January, we will be increasing our tutoring services to students to support them in anyway we can. Please look for communication about that and other enrichment classes that may become available.
Yours in Partnership,
Principal Jason Krause
