Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:
Welcome to the 2016-17 school year at Walnut Cove Elementary. We are excited to have the opportunity to teach your child and to have you as a partner in this very important journey. As a full partner, we hope that you will take seriously the responsibilities listed in the Parent Student-Teacher Agreement found in this booklet. Parent Support and Involvement is one of the most important factors in helping your child to have a successful year.
We will continue to be a Title I school this school year. Title I is a federal program that provides money to our school to purchase additional instructional supplies and to provide additional instruction to students.
Parent involvement is an integral part of our Title I program that provides activities for our parents and students throughout the school year. We look forward to seeing you at our parent involvement activities. We hope that you can find time from your busy schedule to take advantage of these opportunities for your family.
As a parent of a child in a Title I School, you have the right to participate in the decision making process. You are invited to participate on the School Improvement Team, as well as work with the staff to make decisions regarding the school’s School Improvement Plan and Parent Involvement Policy. The success of our school is largely attributed to the support we have received from parents and families.
Also, we know that Walnut Cove Elementary has great kids who are willing to work hard to grow each day. Therefore, we will expect our students to come to school every day with a willing and self-disciplined mind full of enthusiasm. We will expect our students to approach learning in a cooperative and respectful manner. We will hold our students to high standards in academics, behavior, and attitude.
We the staff of Walnut Cove Elementary believe in the great potential of our students. We believe all students can and will learn! We believe all students are motivated by high expectations from teachers and parents. We believe all teaching/learning should be child-centered and engaging. We believe a safe and caring environment enhances student learning.
Therefore, we as the staff of Walnut Cove Elementary are dedicated to providing your child with an excellent educational experience this year, and we strongly encourage all parents, guardians, and students to work with us in full partnership So that together we may produce an exciting year!
With great enthusiasm and high expectations,
The Walnut Cove Elementary Staff
