 PRINCIPAL'S NOTE

Charlotte

Did you know arriving to class on time dramatically improves student learning?

Our school-wide Reading Intervention Program, Walk-to-Read, begins first thing in the morning. It is very important students arrive on time in order to receive the full benefit of this 30 to 40-minute, small group, targeted reading instruction.

 
A study performed by the U.S. Department of Education found “the most crucial learning hours of a school day are the morning hours, because they are when students are most attentive.” In addition, students who arrive late to class decrease their classmates’ learning as well. The same study found “students who are tardy cause a distraction for the entire class when they arrive.”

 

Students need to attend class on time and for the entire day to receive the amount of teacher attention that leads to successful learning. Students who read poorly at the end of first grade almost never acquire average reading skills by the end of their time in elementary school. The importance of attendance cannot be understated; the more time students spend in class, the more they learn.

  • BEING GOOD NEIGHBORS

    Our school is located in a neighborhood. We ask for everyone's support in response to the requests of our neighbors and of RP Public Safety to be extremely careful to not block driveways, double-park and encroach on the red zones during drop-off and pick-up each day. The people who live in the homes on our nearby streets need to be able to get in and out of their driveways with their access unimpeded, especially in case of an emergency. Thank you, in advance, for your help in addressing this concern.
