Dear Discovery Families,
Welcome to another school year! We are so excited to continue our work with your children, as they are growing and learning here at Discovery. One of our goals this school year are to increase the academic achievement of every child as measured by AZMERIT. We are looking at differentiation, analyzing common formative assessment data, and then using this data to supporting learning through Response To Intervention (RTI). We have a continued goal of partnering with community resources, our PTSA, district personnel, and parents to ensure that we provide an excellent educational experience.
Our plan is to ensure that EVERY child is ready for high school and has the vision or goal to go to college or have a plan for post high school learning/leadership experiences. We are using CLOSE reading strategies in the form of a bookmark called Attack the Text, which is clearly aligned with what the Glendale Union Highs School District uses in all content areas. We are hoping to make a more seamless transition for our students.
Learning about Covey’s seven habits will support the development of leadership skills within each child.
Habit 1-Be Proactive
Habit 2-Begin with the end in Mind
Habit 3-Put First Things First
Habit 4-Think Win-Win
Habit 5-Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood
Habit 7-Sharpen The Saw
I am honored to support such an outstanding community and eagerly anticipate a rewarding and successful year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or input at any time. I am proud to be a Discovery Scorpion.
