ASSOCIATE SUPERINTENDENT GIVES GLOWING REPORT ON HER VISIT TO OUR SCHOOL
Last Wednesday, Ms. Pam Lyons, Associate Superintendent, spent the day visiting classrooms, meeting with Fr. Ted and Fr. Theo, looking at our files, and observing the procedures and routines of the school. She made an oral report to the faculty and to the school administration.
She found that the school’s Catholic identity was extremely strong and vibrant.
She noted the high degree of student engagement and learning taking place in the classrooms.
She complimented the teachers on their very apparent care and concern for the education of the whole child, and encouraged the teachers to continue to provide engaging instruction and curriculum.
Ms. Lyons was impressed with the way reading was being taught in all the grades. It is in line with the demands of the English Language Arts Common Core Standards. These standards are due for implementation in the next couple of years.
Ms. Lyons complimented the teachers for organizing their classroom environments in such a way that the 21st century skills of collaboration and communication were facilitated.
Finally, she was extremely impressed with how confident and mannerly the students were.
Over all, the visit proved to be extremely successful for us. Ms. Lyons will send a written report of findings to us in the near future.
