Principal's Message

Dear Godwin Families, 

We are moving into the fourth month of the school year, which is truly hard to believe.  The fall always seems to fly by between the excitement of a new school year and the holiday celebrations.  As we enter the month of December, there is an excitement in the air for the holidays and the possibility of snow.  Students get excited over the tiny snowflake and keep contain themselves when talking about Christmas or Hanukkah.  In school, we recognize all holidays and find value in educating children about them.  The first grade learns about holidays around the world and the traditions that accompany them.  It prompts great discussions among students about their own family and how they spend the holiday.  

With all this holiday excitement, sometimes, it can be hard for students to maintain their focus and attention during the school. Our teachers do an amazing job persevering through their lessons to teach important skills and concepts.  Each day, teachers plan engaging multisensory lessons to spark the curiosity and imagination of each student.  They plan hands on activities that integrate subject matter with the holidays and promote foundational skills.  I am truly in awe of my staff and the commitment they make on a daily basis to their students.  

My principal's message would not be complete, until I ask the parent community to partner with us as we help students stay focused and attentive during the holidays.  Please remind your child that school is a place of learning and they should do their Personal Best daily.  They need to Respect their teachers and peers and show how Responsible they are to complete class work and homework.  Every person in our school Can Make a Difference in the life of another person.  Kindness goes a long way, especially during lunch and recess and allowing everyone to play together.  Saying thank you, please and you're welcome are at the bare minimum when teaching manners and raising polite individuals.  Thank you for partnering with us on this journey to help students develop these life long skills.  

Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season. 
Danielle Bache
