    Principal's Message

    Greetings Heyward Gibbes Parents and Guardians:

    The start of the school year has been outstanding!  Teachers are providing instruction and students are actively engaged in the learning process.  We hope that you will have a conversation with your child daily about school, and ask questions that encourage them to explain what they are learning.  Over the course of this school year, we will continue to provide additional academic enrichment in all areas to strengthen student performance in the areas needed. Teachers are required to provide bell-to-bell instruction and limit the amount of time that students are out of the classroom

    One of my main goals is to protect the time of the instructional day.  To help, I am asking you to do the following:

    *Make sure your child arrives to school on time.  The school day is 8:30 a.m.-3:45 p.m.  We really need your support with getting your child to school every day, on time, and limit early dismissals.

    *Encourage your child to read.  To help improve literacy skills, students will engage in Sustained Silent Reading (SSR) each morning for 15 minutes.  You can even encourage them to read each morning on the bus.

    *Encourage study time daily.  Homework is assigned to reinforce concepts covered during the school day.

    I encourage you to come and visit your child’s classroom.  Working together we will achieve more.
