Message from the Director

Dear Parents:

We have completed another successful school year at the preschool Southwest Campus. I would like to thank the staff, parents and family members who helped to make this a great year!  It was a great pleasure to have your children in our preschool program.We learned so many things.  The students are proud because they have learned to read and write.

It has been a pleasure and privilege to see their personalities grow day by day and to see how they have developed in their reading.  We have laughed, played, studied, learned and enriched our lives during this school year.  Take care of your children for they are so precious.   

Our superintendent, Dr. Stroud, has launched the Scholastic summer reading program designed for our parents to keep students actively engaged in the process of reading. Parents will be afforded the opportunity to get a head start on developing great readers out of our students.

For many children, summer is a time of enrichment, with activities that enhance and expand on things they learn in school. For other children, the summer break puts a pause on learning and causes what’s known as the “summer slide” -- the loss of academic skills while school is out of session. It also can be a challenge for our students who may be struggling academically, which causes a learning gap in the upcoming academic year. Students are expected to read all of the books and complete the interactive worksheets.  

Parents are encouraged to motivate their children to explore learning through reading. Summer reading can increase:
  • A student’s academic and social performance.
  • Opportunities for family engagement.
  • Community involvement efforts.
  • A student’s overall motivation to read.
Our talented teachers have collaborated all year with parents to nurture children into respectful, confident and joyful learners.  Next year, my focus will be to improve teaching strategies and to increase parental involvement on our campus.  Remember, I will always have a great interest in your children and their destinies, wherever they may go, whatever they do and whoever they become.

Mrs. Cheyne R. Brown, Pre-K Southwest director
