On behalf of the entire school community, we would like to welcome you and your family to the 2017-2018 school year.
Here at Chávez we are committed to giving every student an excellent education and experience. We know that the elementary years are the formative years for students’ success and we look forward to partnering with both family and community to do so. We believe in not only welcoming families and community members, but also helping them feel valued and involved in their children’s education.
Our school’s vision is to build strong relationships and thriving scholars. We are committed to working in collaboration with parents and the community to continue to develop and implement this shared vision. Our hope is to create a nurturing, disciplined, and challenging environment in which all students can learn at optimum levels and eventually graduate college, career or community ready. We encourage you to keep in touch with your child’s teacher, provide praise and support for your child, attend scheduled conferences and other activities, call when you have questions, and join in your child’s learning. There is no substitute for a positive home-school partnership.
Our School Improvement Plan (SIP) this year focuses on reading instruction. Teachers will continue to create well-planned lessons that make the content accessible and valuable for all scholars. As a school community we will also be refining parent and family communication methods to become more efficient in how we partner with families.
This handbook has been prepared as a guide to the policies and procedures relative to the Madison Metropolitan School District, as well as specifically about our school’s policies and procedures. Please take some time to review the information in the handbook along with your child and keep it handy for future reference.
