The staff at Rudyard Kipling School welcomes you and your family to the 2017 – 2018 school year. We are committed to doing all we can to make this school year a successful experience for every student. We firmly believe that a home/school partnership is necessary for the success of all of our students. Learning is not an easy process! It involves sharing ideas, making mistakes, and attempting new experiences. Learning involves hard work by everyone, the teacher, the parent, the principal, but most importantly the student.
At Kipling, we value and challenge each student and provide opportunities for success. Instruction is based on the Common Core Standards. We focus on equipping our students to be collaborative workers, self-directed learners, information processors, effective communicators, and complex thinkers. Our students’ success is the center of all we do.
Research and experience shows us that a parent’s/guardian’s involvement in a child’s education is directly related to his/her success in school. You, as parents, are the most critical part of our school success. You take an active and crucial role in providing an atmosphere that promotes education and quality work habits. Your support provides the foundation for students to come ready to learn. To maximize your child’s success, emphasize the importance of education through the following:
• Ensure that your child is at school on time each day.
• Attend parent/teacher conferences and school events.
• Monitor your child’s homework daily.
• Expect and support positive behavior at school.
• Read with your child or encourage your child to read daily.
Please Save the Date: Our Back to School Night will be held the day of progress report distribution by appointment on October 6, 2016. The staff and I are excited to greet our new and returning students and families. If there is any way for us to make your experience at Kipling better, please feel free to let me know.
I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students. Thank you in advance for your support and commitment. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (773) 535-3151 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
