Greetings Tanglewood Family and Friends,
Welcome to the 2022-23 school year. I know many of you are looking forward to your kids being back in school, and I can assure you that our teachers are excited about having them back.
This year we will continue to focus on our academic gains. As you have heard me say time and time again, we have the best students on the planet. They are bright, smart, and creative. Due to this I believe that our scores will continue to increase, and the confidence of our students will increase too.
Our team will be initiating several opportunities for parents and guardians to visit our school to check on student progress and to volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering please complete the district level 2 clearance. Please go here to learn more. I am confident that we will have a richer environment with you in our school helping us to achieve our goals. I will be posting messages to recruit adults to help us out in the school quite frequently. Please visit our website for more information. You will also have an opportunity to do this at our welcome back orientation. Once again volunteer clearance can be found here.
Student conferences will be held on a quarterly basis to give all parents/guardians the opportunity to do academic and behavior check ins. These conferences will be facilitated by teachers and led by students so that the students can develop the skills to communicate their progress and challenges.
Finally, you can expect frequent opportunities to connect with me during chat sessions. These chat’s will occur throughout the year sometimes in the morning and in the evening at other times. I want to hear from you so that we can improve our school together as a team.
We are expecting great things this year, and I hope you are too. Let’s work together to make this an awesome year.
Dr. G. Walles
