Mr. Lenz emailed a link for families to take the "Conditions for Learning Survey." The link can also be accessed HERE. The survey assesses four core constructs within elementary, middle and high schools:
- A safe and respectful climate
- Challenge/high expectations
- Student support
- Social and emotional learning
We will give the survey twice this year to measure growth around our programming relative to Social and Emotional Learning. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. This pre-survey window will be open until November 27, 2019. Thank you to all families for participating as your feedback is vital to our continuing efforts to improve.
Silvia Elementary School’s Core Beliefs are:
We believe all students are entitled to a respectful, caring, and safe learning environment where they are encouraged to take risks in order to grow academically, emotionally and socially.
We believe that recognizing and honoring diversity strengthens our ability to teach the whole child and build a sense of community.
We believe all students will develop the coping skills necessary to build self reliance, perseverance, and self awareness in order to become intrinsically motivated independent thinkers in a collaborative environment.
We believe mastery learning is best achieved when students have opportunities to apply skills in authentic situations.
