Dear Freedom Falcon Community,
I can’t believe it’s the year 2020!! We are ready to
celebrate our 20th year of soaring high! I feel blessed and honored to be part of such
an amazing team of students, teachers and parents. My personal goal is for each
student to not only reach their full potential, but to also recognize that they
have the potential to BE and DO anything they put their mind to.
As we enter the second half of the school year, I would like
to highly recommend each parent focus on attendance and literacy. Please find
time to listen or read to your child every night. Literacy is a very critical
component to student success. Research also shows that attendance is a very
critical component to student achievement. We have structured our school start
times so every child has an adequate amount of time to eat a healthy breakfast
and arrive to class on time.
There are so many distractions within the world that can be
very discouraging for elementary aged students. We are dedicated to preparing
our students by beginning each day with a life lesson on social/emotional
learning. Each lesson focuses on acts of kindness, good citizenship and many
other ways of being the best Falcon they can be. I truly believe in modeling the behavior I
want to see in children and that’s how I lead and teach during daily
interactions with students. I look forward to an amazing second half of the
We are on our way to
an A, the Volusia way!
