Dear Students and Parents:
It has been over five months since I have been in the same building with all of my Bear Family, and I miss you all! While the first day of school is Tuesday, September 8th, District Leaders, Teachers, and Staff have been working many hours, days, and weeks this summer to bring you back to The Den. This year will look very different in many ways, but our love for and dedication to our students, staff, school, and community is consistent.
Teachers & staff are meeting for eight days before school starts to create routines and protocols to bring you safely back to school along with preparing for academics. We will have to be patient with one another as we swim through these unchartered waters and navigate with open communication, support, and always keeping the safety of our students and staff as our number one priority. This will be a very different experience, but we have a great team of students, staff, and families, and I KNOW we can do anything TOGETHER! ♥
I do want to welcome you to school year 2020-2021! I am anticipating a great year full of learning, challenges, successes, and laughter at Cave Hill School. 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 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.
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.
To all our Cave Hill bears, parents, family members and community ~ here’s to the very best year possible!
