Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year! I am very excited at what lay ahead for Emery Park. There are many important tasks ahead for our community, including full implementation of several critical instructional initiatives. Across the board in AUSD, including Emery Park, all schools will be engrossed in the following this year:
- Balanced Literacy Initiative
- Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
- Positive Behavior Supports (PBS)
We must work together on all fronts for our students for these initiatives to be successful. Please, don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher to ask any question you think is important. Also, I know its cliché, but my door is always open! I truly enjoy connecting with our awesome community. If you need support for anything, please call, come down, email, or catch me on the corner of Meridian and Commonwealth after school.
My challenge to students this year, including myself and our teaching staff, is continue to be goal oriented! Continue to be focused on pushing yourself past your regular comfort zone, and work on attaining what you may have previously deemed unattainable. If we can do that, undoubtedly we will feel great about our efforts, come May 31st, 2019.
Again, thank you as always for your support. I’m looking forward to 18-19 as being the best year yet!
