Dear Hyatt Families,
Welcome to the 2016/2017 school year at Hyatt Elementary, home of the Tigers! This is my first year as a Principal, as I was Assistant Principal (AP) for one year at Hyatt Elementary and a shared AP for both San Jacinto Elementary and Hyatt Elementary for the 2014/2015 school year. I am super excited to continue to work with our Hyatt families, students, and staff for this school year!
We have a dynamic teaching and support staff at Hyatt. Our primary goal is to ensure we are preparing each and every child to be college and career ready. AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, will be the driving force for our school to ensure we deliver the highest form of education which promotes achievement through Guided Reading, PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Supports), close reading, Project Base Learning, math talks, and our new newly adopted English Language Arts curriculum.
Throughout the school year, our staff and students will continue to learn and apply a growth mindset. Having a growth mindset, helps our students understand that their abilities can develop with hard work and dedication. In addition, teachers will be modeling goal setting to support our students in understanding how to backwards plan to meet their academic goals.
I encourage you to be an active volunteer in our school. We need parents to support us in or out of the classroom, with before and after school functions. Our school will have many opportunities for our parents and students to come out and learn about and get involved with our school. Some of the events or committees are: PTA, School Site Council, Book Club, STEAM, Spring Carnival, ELAC, fundraisers and many others.
We look forward to seeing you at school events, parent conferences, and we encourage you to volunteer as much as possible. Please make sure to check out our monthly calendar on-line or one sent home by your child’s teacher for more information on upcoming events and committee dates. We also encourage you to sign up for Remind 101 so you are able to receive text notifications. Please see our office staff for additional information on Remind 101 if necessary. As a parent or guardian, you play a significant role in your child’s success. Hyatt is here to support you and your student through a collaborative effort.
If you ever have any questions, comment, concerns, or would just love to chat, please feel free to approach me any time.
