SPARK AWARD WINNERS FOR April
Sea Kings Families,
As we begin to close out the school- let's take moment to reflect on our first full in person school year post pandemic. Achievement gaps might not yet be totally obvious, but it is safe to say all of us, both adults and students, found it challenging to adjust to the new social environment. Many of our students had never visited our school, while others had only had limited exposure, and still others, like our eighth graders, were never truly able to experience the transition from being small fish to large fish.
All of the above factors contributed to a lengthier transition period at the start of the year, as we were still getting to know one another and setting expectations. Every year, our staff's foremost objective is to establish relationships with students and cultivate an environment of kindness and compassion. One successful adult-student interaction can boost a student's self-esteem, academic drive, and overall achievement.
I am proud of all that we have accomplished this year, but it isn't over yet. Let's finish strong Sea Kings, and come to school every day as our PVIS B.E.S.T!!
Every Student. Every Day.
Have a great week Sea Kings.
Micah J. Farrell, Principal
