The staff at Waitz Elementary School welcomes you and your family to the 2013-2014 School Year. We are committed to doing all we can to make this school year a successful experience for every student. We firmly believe that a home/school partnership is necessary for the success of all of our students. Learning is not an easy process! It involves sharing ideas, making mistakes, and attempting new experiences. Learning involves hard work by everyone, the teacher, the parent, the principal, but most importantly the student.
We are proud to say that Waitz has met state standards with distinctions. This is a great accomplishment for our students. We look forward to creating lifelong learners at Waitz Elementary. Our students’ success is the center of all we do.
Research and experience shows us that a parent’s/guardian’s involvement in a child’s education is directly related to his/her success in school. To maximize your child’s success, emphasize the importance of education through the following:
-Ensure that your child is at school on time each day. -Attend parent/teacher conferences and school events. -Monitor your child’s homework daily. -Expect and support positive behavior at school. -Read with your child or encourage your child to read daily. In addition, there are numerous volunteer opportunities in which we welcome you to become involved. Volunteers make a tremendous positive impact and enrich our educational program. Come by the office for more information regarding volunteering at Waitz.
I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students. Thank you in advance for your support and commitment. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (956) 323-6600 or email@example.com
