As we continue our celebration of the “Kick-off the to New Year” it is with great pride that we “shout-out” our cheers to the students, faculty, and staff in celebrating our schools’ SPP (School Performance Profile) scores. The high school is ranked at the number five (#5) spot for public schools that have demonstrated improved scores across the entire Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, according to the in-depth data analysis compiled by Todd Hockenbroch, Assistant Principal for the Middle/High School. The link to our schools’ reports is: http://paschoolperformance.org/ where you may choose your role as parent and enter the site for all the school’s data reviews and performances. It is with great acclaim that we acknowledge our schools reflect the learning that is taking place in our classrooms through the diligence and hard work of our students and teachers. Congratulations to our parents who also extend the learning within the home environment by being supportive of homework and projects that require time beyond the school day. It is the reading of books before bedtime and the playing of games that develops problem-solving strategies; these skills, that are reinforced both at home and in school, become the building blocks wherein student learning becomes a steady progression of success.
We also celebrate that our first marking period is coming to a close and report cards will be distributed. This documentation provides an opportunity for parents to have meaningful conversations with their children. It is also a critical time to meet with your child’s teacher(s) to gain a deeper understanding of the success and/or challenges that each student is experiencing at this point of the school year. Every parent is urged to participate in parent/teacher conferences at any time throughout the school year to ensure all students attain success in every classroom.
We also celebrate that Thanksgiving gives us time to gather together as families and friends, and, reflect on our thankfulness as meals are shared and enjoyed. We celebrate life and are thankful that we may be a part of your child’s learning and growth here in the Shamokin Area School District.
