Greetings Timberwolf Families!We have had an amazing first trimester here at Terra Vista! So many great things have taken place already and we are looking forward to the remainder of the school year. Our students are working hard and adjusting well to the new academic standards that focus their learning on the problem solving and collaboration skills that will lead to success in the 21st Century. Our district has adopted a new math program to support students as they develop these important skills. Children are required to persevere, dig deeper into conceptual understanding and solve problems in different ways. Although this may seem challenging now, it will get easier as students grow accustomed to thinking this way. The long term benefit is that students will be better prepared for high school, college and whichever career they choose. Our students are worth the extra effort. We know they CAN do it and we are excited about their futures! Remember, we are preparing them for their adulthood, not life as we know it now. Thank you to those of you who followed Mrs. Englehardt and I along on our travels through China by reading the blog posted on the link at the left side of this website. This was quite an adventure! It was certainly fun to share the instructional strategies and many programs that we have in place to support our students here at Terra Vista. Our new friends in the East are excited to implement cooperative learning structures and thinking maps after learning what we presented. This year our Student Council members will be writing articles for our newsletter. Now you can learn about what’s happening at school from a student’s perspective. I know you will enjoy their commentary as much as I have. I’d like to thank our student council members for all that they do every day to make our school special. They help with our walking program, facilitate pencil sales and assist with projects and events. These young people are exceptionally responsible and a constant reminder of what’s right in our world today.Finally, I’d like to thank our PTA and all of our parents for the many ways that you support our school. Our cheesecake fundraiser was a HUGE success and the proceeds support many of our programs and supply important resources that help our children learn and grow. We’ve had at least one Watch Dog DAD on campus almost every day and countless parent volunteer hours are spent in classrooms and the Read Naturally lab. This is an awesome community and our staff is grateful to be a part of it!
