Dear Isham parents and students,
Our 2018-19 school year opens with our theme of Be KIND! We challenge each and every student to Be KIND in their words and actions. We look to find the uniqueness in every child by building each child's self-esteem, academics, and social-emotional development. We take education holistically.
As a faculty, we are rock solid. Our teachers are dedicated individuals that are highly qualified in their areas of instruction. Our support staff is exceptional bridging the transition times-lunch, recess, hallways, library- into a positive educational experience. We are proud of our staff.
We encourage parent participation. Volunteers are a way of helping our students succeed. Check with your child's teacher about your availability. We welcome your support both in school and at home.
Speaking of parents, we need your help! Look for monthly reading calendars that are sent with your student which will log 15 minutes a night in reading and 10-15 minutes nightly on math facts. Students will send in their calendars to the office for a monthly reward at the beginning of the next month. Please encourage reading and fact practice. It makes a HUGE difference that does not cost anything but your time.
Plan on joining our Isham PTO. Your $10 support allows students to have opportunities that accelerate learning. Field trips, additional computers, developing our Makerspace/library, assemblies, t-shirts are additional items that extend our learning. We are better as a team-school, home-PTO!
Looking forward to an incredible year. I have had at least thirteen while at Isham! We are here to help you reach your goals.
