Dear Wolf Pack Families,
As we head into our upcoming break, I am writing to you to wish all members of our community Happy Holidays! The Uncas students and staff have been very busy celebrating the many traditions and customs that represent our Pack. Our teachers have planned and delivered engaging lessons, designed to meet the needs of all of the students. We also took time over the last week to participate in some festive activities where students were able to get in the holiday spirit and show Pack Pride!
When we return in January, we will be ready to begin our Winter assessments, where we will see the progress your students have been making since the beginning of the year. In my regular meetings with teachers, it is clear that many of our students are showing tremendous progress and I look forward to seeing their continued growth. If you have specific questions regarding your child’s progress, please don’t hesitate to contact their teacher.
Finally, another reminder of our attendance goals. We continue to strive to have less than 5% of students listed as chronically absent. Currently, approximately 9% of our students are identified as chronically absent. Daily attendance is vital for your child’s success, both academically and social/emotionally. Please note that at 8:45 am we open the school for breakfast and by 9:00 am, our students are engaged in learning. Please help us reach the goal by making every effort to support your child in their preparation for school.
Thank you again for your continued partnership during these unprecedented times. I am so proud to be a member of such a strong learning community and appreciate your support! Wishing you and your families a joyous holiday season and I look forward to our work together in 2022!
