TCU Le Center Pre K-8 Continuous Improvement Letter
TCU- Le Center Families,
Our school is dedicated to providing all students with an excellent education so that each child can succeed in school and in life. To ensure your child’s success, we have set high standards that are reflected in our school wide goals and our standards-based lessons within our classrooms. During the 2015-16 school year, we will look at multiple assessment measures that indicate how our school is succeeding. This will ensure that we reach our goal of all children succeeding in school and in life.
This year, TCU- Le Center, has been designated as a Continuous Improvement School. This is the result of the school being among the lower 25 percent of Title I schools in regards to the state’s Multiple Measurement Rating (MMR last school year), which measures school performance on student proficiency, academic growth, and achievement gap reduction.
Continuous Improvement Schools must use student performance data to undergo a needs assessment. A needs assessment is a systematic process whereby we analyze school data in order to make decisions on how to improve the school. We have undertaken this process already, and have used the results to create our school improvement plan so that our students can reach their full potential.
Your engagement and support in your child’s education is critical to his or her success. Contact your child’s teacher(s) with how you can best support the work they are doing in the classroom. All staff email addresses and the school phone numbers are posted on our school’s website. Thank you in advance for supporting your child’s education through steps like providing a quiet place for your child to do homework or read, limiting screen time, and talking with your student about school. Also, remember that students between 5-12 years old need 10-12 hours of sleep each night; adolescents need 10 hours of sleep.
We are looking forward to continuing the great start to the year we are having. TCU- Le Center will have its annual meeting to inform parents about our Title I program and revise the parent involvement plan. This meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 24th, from 5:30-6:30 PM in the Title One Room.
Mr. Brian Grensteiner, Principal
