HI Presidio Family,
I cannot believe that we are almost finished with the first quarter of this school year and almost in October! I have had the opportunity to speak with students, faculty, staff, and families about the current school year and have been overwhelmed with the positive responses. I feel fortunate to work in a place that I love, surrounded with positivity despite the current conditions. I also greatly appreciate the constructive feedback I have received because I believe that feedback can only help us grow and improve. Speaking of improvement, I am impressed with our students’ growth during the first quarter and would like to give a HUGE shout out to the #PresidioFamily for coming together to create a helpful, positive learning environment for our students. Whether students are participating in our distance learning model on site or in an off site location, they have gotten into a routine and are making great strides towards achievement. Thank you to our Response to Intervention team for setting up pull out services for students who are demonstrating challenges in one or more subject areas, to our faculty and staff for setting up tutoring/Academic Lab time to reteach lessons and provide additional assistance to those who need it, to our guardians for sitting with our students and helping them navigate the technical aspects of distance learning. Please remember when working with your children that it is ok, even beneficial, for them to struggle a bit with a concept. If you are concerned about the amount of time your child is spending on a concept, please reach out to his/her teacher. We are all together on this path and want to do our very best to teach perseverance, problem solving, grit, in addition to teaching the curriculum. Thank you all for your continued support of Presidio and active involvement in the #PresidioFamily!
