Principal's Message


March from the Eyes of the Principal


March is the month that sets the stage for the beginning of our third trimester; the trimester that will close out our 2017-2018 school year.  As our students navigate their way through the final months of school, they will work hard to meet the academic challenges for their grade.  This is the time of year that teachers will work hard to ensure that their students demonstrate mastery of the final skills that students will use to successfully score at or above grade-level on their assessments.  It is that time of the year that our efforts should articulate to our students that it is never too late to do their best and succeed.  We can do this by incorporating some of the following encouraging remarks and actions:


  • Encourage your child to always do their best, and support their efforts when they do.
  • When reviewing your child’s report card, provide praise for meeting grade-level standards, and provide support when academic mastery has not been achieved.
  • Help your child set realistic goals for improving academically by teaching personal responsibility, the value of hard work, and good study skills.
  • Acknowledge and praise your child when they reach their goals.
  • Resist comparing your child’s grades to their siblings or other students.
  • Stay positive and remember to support, support, support.


Incorporating some of these encouraging remarks and actions will help our students to continue to be the best that they can be.  It will also give you an opportunity to voice pride in your child’s efforts and hard work.


The month of March boast some fun facts to remember:


  • The pencil with an attached eraser was first patented in March, 1858;
  • Dr. Suess, Vincent Van Gogh, Justin Bieber, and Lady Gaga were all born in March; and
  • The rubber band was invented in March.


The month of March is well known for its attachment to the word, “luck” when we associate it with trapping a leprechaun on St Patrick’s Day. 


As we move through March, may we experience loads of luck and the beginning of many days of success.  Remember to stay optimistic knowing that spring is on the horizon.
