Dear Parents and Families,
On behalf of the staff at Anton Grdina PreK-8 School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018/19 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our scholars can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our scholars need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for their success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
1) Attends school on time each day, ready to learn.
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers.
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills.
This year, we are implementing our Inquiry Based Learning approach, which will give our scholars voice and choice in their learning. It’ll get them more engaged and excited about learning. Please visit our resource page to get more information regarding Inquiry Based Learning at Anton Grdina.
The Anton Grdina team would like to thank you for your continued support in meeting the needs of our scholars. We look forward to working with you!
