When I started at Mead Elementary five years ago, I met with teachers and staff to determine how we wanted to shape the future of education at Mead. Through several discussions, we decided that literacy was going to become the focus of our school. It was not enough to read at school and during class, our goal was for it to become part of the daily routine at home.
Building a Sustainable and Growing Literacy Program By Betsy Ball
"As various school breaks approach throughout the year, Principal Betsy Ball’s consistent message to Mead Elementary families is to keep their children reading with myON. “We have a schoolwide focus on literacy and myON fits beautifully to support home-school engagement,” she explained. “This is our fourth year with myON, and it is now part of our school culture. We are myON readers! "
Technology is a great resource and one we are proud to be able to share with our students. You can partner with us by having a conversation with your child about appropriate use of technology. Below are some tips from the National Children's Advocacy Center on how kids and teens can stay safe on the Internet.
Hi Mead Families,
Teachers and students are working hard each day in the classroom. We have a building wide focus this year on high expectations and excellence. You can help us at home by making sure that the work your child does is excellent and complete. We are looking ahead to the new online assessments and know that we need to raise the bar in order for our students to preform well.
Thank you for a great start to our 2014-2015 school year. We enjoyed seeing everyone at our back to school night, Lemonade in the Shade. It was fun to hear all of the positive comments about how great and fresh our building looks.
