Leavitt Middle School

Wisdom begins with wonder…

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Welcome to Leavitt Middle School! I hope you were all able to spend some quality time with your families this summer. On Monday, August 24, 2015, the new school year will begin. At Leavitt we pride ourselves on challenging students to be their very best and helping them to understand that their path towards college begins in middle school. We also recognize that we are not alone and could not be successful without the support of the parents and guardians of all of our students.

The staff at Leavitt Middle School will focus on engaging students in the learning process while emphasizing activities, participation, and good citizenship. We will implement three significant curricular adjustments which should have a very positive impact on our instructional program at Leavitt. First, a targeted focus on the Common Core standards which emphasizes the development of critical thinking, problem-solving, college and career readiness, and increased rigor utilizing the College Board Springboard program and the new Next Generation Science Standards. Also, we will adjust the weekly schedule where students will attend periods in the traditional order of 1st through 6th week “A” and then alternating to a “B” week going from 6th to 1st to allow students access to classes at different times of the day. As I am sure you are aware as parents of teenagers, students may not be on their “A” game first thing in the morning and we want all of our students to have the opportunity to be their most productive and engaged in all of their classes. Finally, we will add an elective stream based on the Gateway program which focuses on problem-solving and critical thinking for the 21st century learner with a focus on Flight, Automated Flight (drones), and Robotics. These actions will place a priority on the transition of our incoming sixth grade students and our outgoing eighth graders. Furthermore, by allowing students to utilize technology as a tool to create original and meaningful learning outcomes, incorporate project-based learning, challenge our learners to think outside the box and, develop a solid foundation on the basics.

In my opinion, a successful school provides a quality education for all students in a safe and engaging learning environment and helps students to become successful citizens and lifelong learners. Let’s be the best that we can be! I invite every parent to attend our Parent Advisory Council meetings, which are held on Tuesdays monthly at 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. in the front office conference room (dates are on the back – Please add them to your calendar). I also hope you will join us to meet your child’s teachers at Leavitt’s open house at 6 p.m. on August 27, 2015.

The administration and staff at Leavitt Middle School look forward to a successful year while working with you and your child. If you have any questions throughout the school year, do not hesitate to call us at 799-4699.

Sincerely,

Keith Wipperman
Principal
