Welcome from your DAA Middle School Senior Leadership Team
Dear DAA Middle School Families,
What a wonderful start to the school year! I am so happy to see so many smiling faces in the hallways, classrooms, and grounds (even behind the mask!). Over the past two weeks, we really focused on establishing foundational relationships with teachers and with peers. Now that a safe and nurturing learning environment has been established, we are able to shift our focus to the great learning opportunities that will take place each day.
As you may have heard in Dr. Hildreth’s communications, reading is such an important and impactful aspect of learning. It is not something that is in English class. As we go through the school year, we will take opportunities to read and write in all of our classes in order to bolster achievement and ensure our students are savvy at reading, comprehending, and thinking critically. If your child doesn’t have any homework, I would highly recommend encouraging them to do some reading each night to continue honing this important skill.
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT
The Middle School Back to School Night is just around the corner! Come see us at 6pm on Tuesday, September 13, to see all of the great things happening in DAA MS this year. Parents will start the evening with their child’s CREW teacher, then move to their core subjects. You’ll also hear from the specialist teachers, and have the opportunity to ask questions of the staff. Your child should come home with “your schedule” on Monday afternoon (Sept 12).
