Hello Southridge Family!

This year we are making strides to make school more fun and enjoyable for our students.  Just some of the great thinks happening at Southridge include Fun Fridays where kids enjoy music and dance contests during Friday's lunches (if they kept the lunch area clean all week).  Each week we give clues to our Mystery Star and on Friday during my Knightly News announcements classes can make guesses on which teacher or staff member the Mystery Star is.  The winning class wins a Front of the Line pass for every student!  We had our first dance before Halloween and are planning our next one for after winter break.  We are having a competition to see which class can show the most growth on the MAP test we give three times per year and the winning classes will win a fun pizza, music, and ice cream party!  An incentive to do their best every day in class.  This year we started rewarding kids for good behavior with our Caught Being Good initiative.  They earn CBG cards when they are "caught" making good choices.  Every other week we have a drawing and give out great prizes if their card is chosen.  The more they earn, the better their chances!

This year our focus is Academic Discourse and teachers are given monthly trainings followed by safe practice time and peer observations where teachers visit each others' rooms and share ideas on how best to teach your children.  We are having teachers plan lessons, units, assessments, and interventions that align with common core as well as paying several to give kids extra help through our After School University (ASU). 

What can you do? Obviously the more a parent is involved the more chance for their child's success.  So just be involved; check Zangle Gradebook regularly, ensure your child has a quiet place to do their homework, ensure a solid routine in the morning and after school where the tv and video games are limited, and be sure your child gets to school on time every day!

We want parents to be informed and involved in their child's education! Please look for opportunities to be involved this year by getting active in School Site Council, Coffee with the Principal, or ELAC! We have made it a goal to have more family-oriented activities this year so you can participate along with your child and spend quality time together in activities here at Southridge! Keep an eye on our marquee for upcoming events!

At Southridge we are lucky to be able to meet the needs of both high achieving students as well as those who might need extra help with their academics. If your student is meeting grade-level standards they will be placed in a challenging and fun elective (we offer computers, music, art, and ASB) and if they need some extra help we offer intervention classes such as math or language arts essentials, sections of ALD (Academic Language Development) as well as sections of Read 180 and Math 180 for students needing more intensive intervention.

So we look forward to helping your child become the best they can be at Southridge! We want the same thing you want for your child: Every opportunity for success in school and in life! Always remember that your child's education is a partnership between you and the school. It is my promise that the school will do all it can to help your child to succeed.

If you ever have questions or concerns, don't hesitate to give me a call or set up an appointment.

Sincerely,

Mr. Mullins
