Parent Letter – August 2013

August 2013

Milestones Community Charter School Family:

It is my hope that the 2013-2014 school year brings health and prosperity to all! As we prepare for another amazing school year, it is my hope that the summer months have been healthy and safe for all of our stakeholders.

With increased student achievement for all students as our highest priority, I will continue to work diligently with the instructional staff to make a difference in the lives of all of our students.

Our students are really showing progress and we will continue to push for better results
throughout the 2013-2014 school year. The staff continues to transition to deeper
implementation of the Common Core Standards and improved instructional strategies that motivate students to learn while keeping them fully engaged. The month of August is dedicated to intense professional development for the staff. Throughout the year, we will continue the practice of assessing the needs of our students and implementing interventions that increase results where needed. We truly believe that all of students have the potential to become productive citizens, and we continue to demonstrate commitment proving that we will stop at nothing to ensure every student receives an education that will prepare them for the next level and beyond. We understand the needs of our students and are determined to provide every opportunity to succeed!

Please continue to be encouraged by our efforts and success! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Administration team at any time.

Let’s continue to embrace the idea that Milestones is the family city that meets the needs of the entire family. Together, we can be the change we want see in the world, by working together to make certain our students understand the importance of an education and are provided opportunities and exposure that increase their individual expectations. Milestones is the place to be!
