Dear Delaware Academy Families,

The staff and I would like to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year. We are all so excited to work with your children this year and want to make them the strongest learners ever! We have all worked very hard to prepare for this school year, and we all believe that our students will have a rewarding educational experience this year, which is full of exploration and inquiry-based learning.

Our teachers will continue to emphasize the importance of math and reading in our daily instruction. We plan to promote Reading Street this year, which will include whole group, small group, and writing groups across all grade levels.  We will also continue to challenge students to learn their math facts and math fluency through Envision Math instruction.

Delaware students will all be given a student planner at the beginning of the school year. Please use this planner to check for homework and to communicate with your child’s teacher on a daily basis. It is the expectation that students will bring their planner to school each morning and bring it home each afternoon. We want to hear from you, so please write as often as you need to.

Lastly, I would like to welcome all of you to visit your child’s classroom this year. We would love to have you work with us on our PTO this year, but most important is that your child knows that you are a part of their learning each and every day.
Remember we are only as good as the parents who support us! We look forward to a fantastic year at Delaware Academy!

Together for kids,

Kara Shore
Acting Principal
