Welcome Back! I hope your summer was restful, exciting and everything you wanted it to be. It is always fun to listen to the children talk about their summer and the great times they had. We look forward to welcoming you back to school and seeing all of our students and their families. We hope that you will feel a part of our school family and come and participate in all we have to offer and take an active part in your child’s education. We are excited to see you and collaborate together in your child’s educational experience.
I hope you will join us on the first day of school for our PTA Coffee on the Green. It is a great time to meet new people and connect with people you may not have seen in a while. Please get to know PTA and Eagles Booster Fund. They have a lot to offer and being involved at school is great for your child and also a lot of fun!
We look forward to beginning the year with all our technology in place all raised courtesy of our Academic Boosters Eagles Fund. Our students will engage in 21st Century learning in the computer lab and the classroom. Thanks to Boosters we are anxiously awaiting a new sound system in the MPR along with new computers in our lab.
Neil Armstrong is committed to children and their academic and social wellbeing. We hold high expectations in our teaching and learning, placing high importance on student engagement though creativity, curiosity, communication, critical thinking and collaboration. Character development plays a key role in our student’s education. We focus on respect, empathy, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness and citizenship.
Our common core curriculum is an important piece of our educational shift working on our new reading units of study, science curriculum and much more.
We believe that together we can create a wonderful experience for our children built on rigor, relevance and relationships. We hold the philosophy that Neil Armstrong students are all our students, not just those in our own classrooms. All children when given a chance can be in charge of their own learning with the support of staff and family. We hope to see involved parents as we have in the past. We know it truly makes a difference! We are very excited to see you back!
