Dear Olympic View Families,
Building Bright Future
Olympic View is “Building a Bright Future” for all of our Scholars!
Progress Reports-On Friday February 3rd, your child brought home their progress report. This is an important communication tool that shows where your child is progressing so far this year, and I would encourage you to have a conversation with your child scholar around their progress. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher directly if you need clarification or have questions or concerns. We value parent/family voice and the partnerships we are building.
This week begins the second half of the 2016-17 school year! I feel like we just began the year! As I reflect upon the first half I wanted to share with you some of Olympic Views successes;
--OLV3 Scholar Success Conferences- We have had two of these amazing sessions, one in October, and one the first week in January. Coupled with Student-led Conferences in November we have met and collaborated with many families three times.
--Morning Routine- OLV Scholars meet together in the gym for breakfast and announcements every day! This has been such a positive success. Student Scholars are safe, warm, and begin each day with a positive message and encouraging words.
--Coffee Talks- Every month parents and families joined Assistant Principal Wright and myself for a healthy discussion on “The State of Olympic View.” Recently principals from Decatur HS, Lakota and Saghalie MS joined us for information on transition to middle school.
--Cougar Talks- Ms. Hancock, our Instructional Coach and Mrs. Rosa Pena, our Family Liaison team up to provide discussions around curriculum at each grade level.
Mid-Winter Break No School- February 20th-21st
Student-led Conferences March 8 - 9thLetters will be coming home soon.
In closing I , again, thank you for entrusting the OLV staff with your most precious treasure…your child; an Olympic View Student Scholar. Often I make school-wide announcements during our morning routine or on the intercom. Recently I have been challenging our scholars to show empathy towards one another. Empathy means the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Often times I ask them how they are going to be respectful and responsible over the weekend and show the world that they are an Olympic View Scholar wherever they are. These announcements, however, serve a specific and singular purpose; to ensure that they have a Voice, a Dream and BRIGHT future.
Honored Principal of the OLV Family
