Hello Parents/ Guardians,
We have gotten off to a great start at Conway. I am very pleased with the effort and attitude of our students. If you visit school, I expect that you will see a very orderly school with very well managed classrooms and hallways. The systems that we have installed to ensure order are working as designed.
During September, you can expect for your child’s educational programming to be enhanced. During this month, we will begin our literacy and SAM programs. The Literacy program matches specifically targeted reading curriculum with your child’s current level of performance. This is the second year for this model. We experienced positive results during the first year of implementation. We expect even greater results this year.
The SAM program is a new initiative that enhances your child’s schedule on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This program allows for teachers to engage students in timely, targeted interventions during the school day without interfering with core classes. This three tiered approach targets math skills, motivation and, for those demonstrating proficiency, we offer enrichment opportunities. We are very excited about the implementation of this program. We hope that the students will be also.
Please be a partner with the school. Our mission is to provide quality learning experiences in a caring environment to prepare and inspire our students to be successful in life. We take this charge very seriously. We need your involvement and support to ensure success.
