Dear Students and Parents:
Greetings and welcome to school year 2021-2022! After learning and teaching through a pandemic, I am very ready to get back to some kind of normalcy! I am anticipating a great year full of learning, challenges, successes, and laughter at Cave Hill School. Together our students, their families, teachers, staff, and community will work hard to make Cave Hill School the best it can be!
This year is our last year as a K-8 school. There will be much celebrating as we honor our traditions, the Class of 2022, and our students in grades 5-7. We will be sending our middle schoolers to the new Charles M. Sumner Learning Campus in the fall of 2022! While the change is going to be hard, we will continue to learn, teach, prepare, and celebrate.
Our entire staff is committed to providing our kindergarten to eighth grade students with educational programs that enable them to develop to their fullest potential. The mission of RSU 24 is “Educating students to be engaged, competent, life-long learners by ensuring opportunities to attain excellence.” Through RSU-wide initiatives, our entire district is striving for a better school climate and culture, high expectations of teaching and learning, and collaborating with our communities.
We all play a part in our students’ success -- being at school every day and on time, scheduling appointments after-school, working with your child at home during homework time, reading with them as often as you can, encouraging them to be active in extra- and co-curricular opportunities, making sure they have down time, and encouraging them to do their best every day. I encourage you to stay in contact with your child’s teachers throughout the school year. Involved parents make a huge difference in the success of a child’s education.
This handbook provides you with information about many aspects of our school. Please read and discuss this handbook with your child and keep it for future reference throughout the school year. It is difficult to anticipate everything that may need to be covered in this handbook, therefore do not hesitate to contact us for clarification or more information.
My door is open and I work tirelessly at open communication. Please get in touch with me if you have a concern or a question. I can be reached at 565-3638 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
