2017-2018 Leon Elementary Staff
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Leon Elementary. The faculty and staff are once again excited for the opportunity to partner with the parents and community to ensure that ALL students receive positive social and academic learning experiences throughout the year that promote respect for one’s self, one another and adults, exposing students to the best research-based instructional practices and strategies. Our goal is to instill a desire in students to perform at a high level of achievement. As your principal, I am committed to leading our staff in partnering with parents and the community to ensure that academic success for Leon Elementary students continues to be a top priority. The school days that follow are intended to be productive and memorable! We believe that through our combined efforts, we will be able to provide students with a safe, rewarding and successful school year!
We will monitor educational progress through formative and summative assessments, and make necessary instructional adjustments through differentiating instruction to meet the individual needs of ALL students. We want students to become lifelong learners, proficient in utilizing technology to aid in their learning and to become contributing members of society. We will accomplish this by incorporating all of the above and teaching grade level standards (TEKS), as supported by the state and district and presented through the district’s Curriculum Blueprints for K-5.
I encourage each parent to make this school year a priority by joining the school’s staff in encouraging academic excellence by:
• Making sure your child is on time and prepared for class so that he/she is ready to learn.
• Making a commitment to education at home through assisting with homework, reading together, practicing math computation / problem solving skills and encouraging good behavior.
• Making an effort to stay in communication with your child’s teacher to ensure that social, behavioral and academic goals are being met.
Once again, we look forward to having an academically rewarding year with your students. We also appreciate having the opportunity to facilitate the academic and social growth of students at LES! Please feel free to contact me at (903) 6256-1429 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions or concerns.
