Matthew A. Henson Elementary School Family,
Thank you to all parents and family members that made it out to back to school night last week, Thursday, September 19. For those of you who had other obligations we have attached a PowerPoint that captured some of the highlights of the meeting.
We also briefly discussed the new Common Core State Standards. With a new curriculum there is a lot of new learning, not only for scholars but for teachers and administrators as well. One thing is for certain. The new curriculum is more challenging and rigorous. Please click here for a video explaining the Common Core State Standards.
Please stop into the parent resource center for materials and information on the new standards. Additionally, do not hesitate to make an appointment with your scholar’s teacher or administrators to get your questions answered.
We know when families and schools work together, scholars succeed. Thank you for all that you do.
WORK HARD! GET SMART!!
