Dear Roadrunner School Community,
It’s hard to believe we are already beginning the second quarter of the 15/16 school year! Overall, the first quarter went very well. Our students came back to school ready to learn and prepared to move forward in a positive direction. They have made a lot of academic and behavioral progress. At the end of the first quarter, three students achieved Merit level and many students advanced to Progress or Full Bug level!
It has been a very busy quarter filled with many exciting learning opportunities and social activities. Our Progress and Merit students were able to test their social skills in the community by going on field trips.
Several students from 3rd - 12th grade classes attended the production of Broadway Under the Stars at Horizon High School with Mrs. Schmid, our music teacher. They demonstrated excellent audience behavior while enjoying an amazing show. In addition, our first quarter Family Fun Bingo Night was well attended by staff, students, families, and friends. It was a lot of fun for all, and of course, there were fabulous prizes! Finally, a true measure of student growth was evident during quarter award ceremonies. A number of students made Honor Roll, Principal’s list, and/or earned awards in a subject area for their effort. When our students’ behavior improves, so does their academic achievement.
As we move forward, our second quarter promises to be just as busy as the first. One of the exciting new programs we will be implementing at Roadrunner is AR Reading (Accelerated Reader). This program will be used in addition to our regular reading programs to provide extra reading support, gather important information on our students’ comprehension levels, and track their growth and progress. At the end of October we will have K-12 parent/teacher conferences: Elementary and Middle School conferences by appointment; High School as an open house on Tuesday, October 27, from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. Early in December, we will have our second quarter Family Fun Night, an Arts & Crafts/Games night. We expect great attendance by all grade levels, since this is an excellent opportunity for our students to participate in a fun social activity. Please take a look at the Roadrunner School Calendar on our website to see what else is coming your way.
As always, please feel free to call, email or stop in with any questions, comments or concerns. Happy Fall!
Susan A. Miller (Zipprich)
Principal, Roadrunner School
