Egling Families and Students,
Welcome Back! I hope that you all had a restful summer and that school is off to a great start. This year we will be navigating the world of distance learning TOGETHER. Between the relationship of students, parents/guardians and school staff we will work toward a successful year of learning and school engagement. I want to thank teachers for putting in a tremendous amount of time to make school as normal and engaging as possible for our students. Parents, I want to thank you for all the adjustments you have had to make at home for this upcoming school year to be successful for our students. Lastly, students I want to thank you for continuing to persevere though distance learning, you are all doing an amazing job being pioneers in the distance learning world. I think distance learning has taught us that we ALL must continue to be active learners no matter what stage of life we are in.
This year the idea of "One Team, One Goal" comes to mind as we set forth in developing a new format of educating our students. In recent history, I cannot think of a time such as this when we have all needed to lean on one another as "one team" to reach the "one goal" of educating our kids. We will find during this time that reaching out to one another often with patience and understanding, as well as not being afraid to reach out with questions will give us all a sense of clarity and support that will be needed to make a successful year for our kids. As the year moves forward, we will continue to offer a rigorus curriculum to our students, where growth in student learning is number one priority. We will continue to have engaging student body activities that build a sense of school culture and lastly continue to build upon the whole child with implementing social emotional themed lessons.
I encourage parents/guardians this year to please reach out with any question or concern, check in with your student daily, send a teacher an email, or learn how to get access to student grades/assignments. We encourage you to attend our parent educational nights and continue to watch your email and school website for all of the most up to date information for Egling Middle School.
Here is to a great school year,
