Dear faculty and staff, I hope that your summer vacation was filled with local, national, and international travelling, enlightening conversations, hearty laughter, and whimsical walks in the park or on the beach, delicacies that were flavorful and healthy, sleep that was refreshing and restorative, and seemingly endless hours of time spent with your family and friends!
Wednesday, July 27, 2016, at 7:30 a.m., we will officially start an exciting new year of teaching and learning to support the expressed needs of each student at Frank L. Stanton Elementary School. Throughout the 2016-2017 school year, our instructional focus and daily implementation of best practices will offer every student the academic foundation needed to grow and excel academically as a future college and career graduate with a choice-filled future.
We will continue to poster ourselves as teachable and coachable lifelong long learners whose instructional practices are intentional thus, resulting in measurable learner outcomes. These goals will be realized throughout the year as our entire staff participates in the required differentiated professional learning sessions made available via the district and school. Moreover, each teacher will create an academically challenging, positive learning environment that consistently offers standards-based instruction as evidenced via implementation of the district’s Instructional Practices for all grades bands and disciplines. Frank L. Stanton family, I am excited with hope and promise that we will continue to facilitate rigorous and engaging learning opportunities in each classroom. Our students will remain eager to learn and we will celebrate both student and teacher successes during our weekly Tiger Pride meetings.
So, I charge each of you to continue to collaborate as we learn, plan, grow, and transform into stronger leaders, stronger teachers, stronger support staff, stronger teams, and ultimately a strong school and community!
Frank L. Stanton, I will see you bright and early Wednesday, July 27, 2016, at 7:30 a.m., as we KICK OFF the new year. The 2016-2017 theme is “Opportunities to Learn, Grow, and Transform” Frank L. Stanton into a premier school of Academic and Social Emotional Learning Excellence.
Get ready. #FLStantonStrong! I am paw-si-tive that this will be our last year on the Opportunity District list as we strategically embrace “Opportunities to Learn, Grow, and Transform.”
See you soon!
Phyllis E. Earls, Ed D.
