Welcome Back Blazing Dragons!
I hope everyone had a relaxing and
enjoyable summer break. We are eager to welcome your children back to DeLong
Elementary School for an outstanding 2019-20 school year. We
take great pride in creating an educational atmosphere where students can learn
in a caring and creative environment. Together our staff encourages students to
engage in a lifelong love of learning.
As we focus on student achievement we
will provide a variety of academic and educational experiences that promote
student growth and learning throughout the year. In our Grade Level
Professional Learning Communities (PLC) teachers will regularly collaborate,
analyze data, plan instruction that includes rigorous work in
our classrooms and develop common assessments to ensure student achievement is
attained throughout each grade level. During the upcoming school year I
encourage you to take an active role in your child’s learning. Parent
involvement plays a critical role in our school’s success. Ways to support and
increase your child’s academic success include:
attendance a PRIORITY including
limiting tardiness and absences
the DeLong website regularly to stay informed of school events
often with your child’s teacher
the school day with your child
I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to
excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your
children. This promises to be a year
filled with golden opportunities for all our students as we strive to find ways
that we can be even better than we have before!
When we plant trees, we plant the
seeds of peace and seeds of hope.
