Principal's Monthly Message
February is here again and this past weekend has provided a lot of moisture for our farmers that will help them water their crops this upcoming summer. You may remember that last year I explained how I grew up working on the family farm in Box Elder County and as such I am always concerned about the moisture this part of Utah Receives during the winter. My father and my uncle continue to run the farm and I occasionally go help out during certain times of the year, however each time that I see my uncle and father I ask them what the water reports are predicting for the upcoming season. My uncle will usually pull up reports from the Department of Agriculture and he knows where to find the water levels for the various reservoirs and aquifers that provide the water to sustain the crops of northern Utah. Based on the water levels different water companies can then make projections that the farmers will use to plan the crops and varieties of plants they will plant in the spring. If this information weren’t available to the farmers or to the water companies we wouldn’t have the data needed to be able to plan the most effective course of action for our farm during the upcoming growing season.
Just like growing plants we need to have the correct data when working with our students, our children, to make sure that we are coming up with correct plans of action to help them to grow academically during this season of their lives. In January we took two tests to monitor your child’s growth. These test are called the DIBELS test and STAR reading tests. Each of these tests measures some things that are different than the other test, and some things that are the same. In having your students take these tests we are able to know if they need more help in reading fluently, in comprehending what they read or maybe in reading the different words using correct sounds and spellings. We have also taken math, language arts, science and social studies tests this year that help us to know what your child is understanding and what they need more help to understand. This year we have also incorporated data binders. These data binders are personal measurement tools that our students are using to measure their own growth. They aren’t there for them to measure themselves against other kids, but to see how much they have grown. We frequently use these binders to help us to make a student’s personal growth meaningful and understandable for them. You once again have a great opportunity this month to meet with your child’s teacher during parent teacher conferences to review their progress. This is also a wonderful opportunity for you to set up a plan to stay in contact with their teacher regularly so that you can receive emails, review data binders or other forms of communication that will help you to be up to date at all times with their progress. When you get this information take the time to make it count with your child. This means to celebrate their successes and give them positive encouragement with the things they are struggling with. Review their data binders with them and ask them to explain it to you. By doing this they will know that you and their teacher are working together to do what is best for them. That is a very strong message of caring that you can send to your child.
