Welcome to Albert Schweitzer Elementary School. We are looking forward to an exciting year, one filled with learning, social activities and CARES behavior. Our students will have many opportunities to read and write, solve challenging math problems and demonstrate healthy habits. Our balanced literacy program is designed to help all students achieve in their reading and writing. To support this effort, the daily five will be used. The five parts include: read to one-self, read to someone, work on writing, listen to reading, and spelling/word work. These approaches promote independent learning.
We will continue to provide a variety of ways for students to reach their fullest potential. Each student will be held to high academic and behavior standards. The continued use of multiple resources, and best practices will provide a quality instructional program that meets the individual needs of our students. We will be continuing with our Positive School-wide Behavior Support plan. This CARES program promotes a learning environment that is nurturing, safe, and supportive. It also focuses on students making positive choices and being responsible for their behavior. Additionally, your continued support is appreciated as we continue to stress health awareness. Helping our students to select healthy foods and participate in activities that support the development of healthy bodies will benefit them for years to come. At Schweitzer, we work as a team to achieve these goals, and we are glad to have parents as part of that team.
Continuous communication between and among parents and students that is clear, consistent, and specific is one of the keys to a successful and safe environment, where academic excellence prevails. If we can assist you in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact us, either by telephone or e-mail. Our doors are always open.
