Principal's Letter

Hello Families -
We have one month to go until the second trimester comes to a close.  The students have been working hard with their teachers to reach their learning goals.  One of the instructional focuses that we have as a staff is to ask more questions and offer more activities that push kids to think critically.  One way we can do this is by asking them open-ended questions that will invite elaborated responses. Teachers are facilitating opportunities in their classrooms for rich discussions or activities where the goal is not one, and only one correct answer, but rather a variety of possible responses.  This kind of instructional model can lead to students who are better prepared to think creatively, collaborate effectively, solve problems, and lead with confidence.  These are the exact skills being demanded by colleges, corporations, and businesses around the country.  The next time you are engaging in a conversation with your children or helping them with school work, see if you can get them into a discussion in which your role is simply to pose open-ended questions and then sit back and listen to the responses.  
 
As the old Spanish proverb goes: 
-The wise man never says, “I did not think.”
 
We will continue to expand our learning as a staff around open-ended thinking as we prepare kids for the leadership opportunities that await them in the future.
Please let us know if we can assist you in any way this month as we finish out the 2nd trimester strong!!  Go Falcons!!
 
Brian Arcuri, Principal
