News from the Principal

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

On behalf of all the Wildcat Faculty and Staff we welcome all students and families to our new 2014-2015 school year! This year promises a new beginning for our students, their families, and our faculty and staff. Students will be held to high expectations to learn and perform at high levels, and to be engaged in critical thinking and problem solving activities as their curious imaginations access, analyze, and evaluate information. We encourage you to support our efforts because you play an important role in your child’s life.

Parent involvement is a very important part of your child’s education.  Making sure that your child attends school every day and on time is one of the most important ways you can support. Students learn new skills every day and each day they practice and extend their learning. Every minute, hour and day counts in the lives of our young ones. To extend their learning outside of school, there are many ways you can support your child. You can make sure they read regularly and help them choose books they enjoy reading. Try to read to your child every day and ask them to read you one of the many books they take home from our 100 Book Challenge reading program. Helping your child with math can be just as fun when you go food shopping, for example. Let them figure out the lowest prices on their favorite food items or to estimate the weight in ounces or pounds and compare which is heavier or lighter. Or they can help count items in the shopping cart by two or five. This will help them make connections from school to their home and to the world around them.

We look forward to working with you in an effort to prepare our Wildcats for their college years.

Sincerely,

Roberto Bonseñor
Principal

MENSAJE DEL PRINCIPAL

En nombre de toda la Facultad y el personal de White City Elementary (WCE) le damos la bienvenida a todos los estudiantes y familias a un nuevo año 2014-2015. Este año promete ser un  nuevo comienzo para nuestros estudiantes, sus familias y nuestra facultad y personal. Los estudiantes enfrentaran altas expectativas para aprender en niveles altos, participar y pensar criticamente, resoluciónar problemas en actividades mientras alimentan su curiosidad e imaginación, y a la misma vez analizar y evaluar información presentada. Los invitamos a apoyar nuestros esfuerzos porque ustedes juegan un papel importante en la vida de su hijo. La participación de los padres es una parte muy importante de la educación de su hijo.  Asegurándose de que su niño asista a la escuela todos los días es una de las formas más importantes que usted puede apoyar. Los estudiantes aprendan habilidades nuevas cada día y cada día practicaran y ampliaran su aprendizaje. Cada minuto, hora y día importa en la vida escolar de nuestros niños. Para ampliar su aprendizaje fuera de la escuela, hay muchas maneras que usted puede apoyar a su hijo. Puede asegurarse de que lean regularmente y ayudenlos a elegir libros de interes. Intente leerle a su hijo todos los días y pedirles que les lea uno de los muchos libros llevan a la casa nuestro programa de lectura de libros llamado “100 Book Challenge.”. Ayudando a su hijo con las matemáticas puede ser igual de divertido cuando van de compras, por ejemplo. Pidale averiguar los precios más bajos en sus alimentos favoritos o para estimar el peso en onzas o libras y comparar cual es más pesada o más liviano. O pueden ayudar a contar artículos en el carrito de la compra de dos o cinco. Esto les ayudará a establecer conexiones entre la escuela a su casa y al mundo que les rodea.

Esperamos trabajar con usted con el esfuerzo de preparar a nuestros niños para sus años de Universidad.

Atentamente,

Roberto Bonseñor
Principal
