End of Year Reflections!

Dear Parents,

As I reflect on this year, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all of you for your incredible partnership throughout the year. Together, we have created magical experiences for our young scholars, many of whom have successfully met their growth goals. This collective achievement is a testament to the power of collaboration and commitment. While we have made significant progress, there are still challenges ahead that we must face together. Education remains the great equalizer, and our united efforts are essential to ensure our scholars are not only in school but prepared and eager to learn each day. With the new academic year approaching, I am filled with optimism and enthusiasm. We have the opportunity to build on this year’s achievements and strive for even greater success. I am confident that through our continued partnership, we will empower our scholars to exceed expectations and confidently rise above the status quo. Thank you once again for your unwavering support. Let’s continue to work together to create an inspiring and enriching educational journey for our scholars.

Warm regards, 

Principal  Baker

'Hats' a Great Way to Support Attendance!

IMG 1499

Attendance is of paramount importance for students as it plays a crucial role in their academic success and personal development. By consistently attending classes, students enhance their knowledge and understanding of the subject matter, sharpen their skills, nurture their discipline, and establish a strong work ethic.

One of the critical reasons why attendance is vital is the direct correlation between class attendance and academic performance. Attending school regularly allows scholars to actively engage in discussions, exercises, and activities that complement and reinforce their learning in textbooks. Frequent absenteeism, on the contrary, results in missed information, incomplete class assignments, and limited access to valuable educational resources, significantly hampering the learning process. Research has consistently shown that scholars attending classes regularly tend to perform better on examinations and assignments than their counterparts who skip classes frequently.

Furthermore, regular attendance instills a sense of discipline and responsibility among scholars. By consistently showing up to school, scholars develop the habit of punctuality, which is essential in their future professional lives. The routine created by attending school on time prepares them for regular employment, ensuring they are punctual and dependable individuals. Additionally, regular attendance also helps scholars in developing practical time management skills. By adhering to a schedule and dedicating specific time slots to schooling, they learn to balance their commitments and avoid procrastination—a valuable skill throughout their lives.

Let's recommit and make school fun again!
