Popplewell Elementary Newsletter

Dear Parents,

What an exciting time of year! Students turn a corner in February. This is when we see many students take giant leaps in their learning. Students who have struggled are starting to take off. Students who struggled with reading fluently are sounding like pros. Students who have fought with their addition and subtraction facts are finding that things are starting to click. This is a true testament to all the work done at school and at home since the start of the school year.

So, let's keep the positive growth going with the coordinate efforts between home and school. Remember, you can/should read with your child each night. Students need to read with you for:

  • a fluent model of what reading sounds like,

  • seeing that you value the practice needed to grow as a reader,

  • continued practice of strategies and skills learned at school,

  • quality time for you and your child.

Thank you for your continued support at home!

Cynthia Cooper,

Popplewell Elementary Principal
