As we begin a new school year at Pojoaque Valley School’s Sixth Grade Academy (SGA), it is my pleasure to welcome you and your child on his/ her continued educational journey! Our faculty and staff have great expectations for your child and we are eager to work collaboratively with you in ensuring that you and your child are off to a great start. Our team is committed to setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to assure they are met. It is our goal at the Sixth Grade Academy that all students perform at their maximum potential by setting high academic standards for student achievement and addressing school culture.
I will work collaboratively with the staff at the Sixth Grade Academy to provide an academic program where all students can be successful. Education is a shared responsibility; therefore, we will keep open lines of communication between home and school. As such, it is important to work as a team to guide your child toward success. One way to accomplish this is by communicating with your child’s teacher and participating in school functions throughout the school year. You are valuable in your child’s education! Together we can truly create an atmosphere of PRIDE (Prepared – Respect/Responsibility – In class/on time – Doing my work –Expecting to Succeed).
Beginning on Wednesday, July 27, 2016 you can stop by the SGA office between 7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. to pick up/fill out the pre-printed registration packet containing information regarding addresses, medical and emergency phone numbers, home language questionnaire, transportation, consent, etc. In addition, we welcome you on Tuesday, August 2, 2016 at the Pojoaque Lobby/Auditorium for registration. We will begin with a brief welcome/introduction assembly promptly at 5:30. Schedules will be distributed only after the registration packet has been completed and submitted on this evening.
On the reverse of this letter, please find this year’s school supply list that will be required of all students. Additional supplies may be needed as per individual teacher request or as supplies run out and the year progresses. This year’s back to school tax-free holiday is August 5-7, 2016.
Please feel free to contact me at 505.819.2300 or electronically at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am confident that this will be a productive school year and look forward to meeting and interacting with you!
