Mr. Corey Shepherd
Dear Families and Students,
I'm looking forward to the 2022-23 school year!
Regular attendance is extra important as we will be using our time together to strengthen academic and social/emotional skills to prepare for middle school. We will continue to follow recommendations to keep students safe and in school. We do our best learning when we are together in person, and I hope that that can continue to be the case throughout the coming school year.
I want to emphasize building fluency in basic math facts as well as daily reading to build vocabulary, comprehension, and overall fluency. We will work on these at school, but practice at home will be crucial to helping these skills stick.
Students: Don't let anyone tell you that you are "behind" because of odd school years we have experienced due to COVID. You always have been and always will be an incredibly diverse group of learners with individual strengths and areas needing improvement. We will work on what we need to work on to get us to the next step in our learning journeys just as we always have before. Read books that interest you. Use technology wisely to find quality information that you need for your purposes. Believe in yourself every step of the way.
