What an exciting time to be in Mt. Healthy City School District. We are in the 4th year of our 5 year strategic plan, Mt. Healthy an Education Destination. We have made great strides with our implementation of this plan most notably, going 1 to 1 with computers, receiving a $1.2 million Striving Readers Grant, and reducing barriers to student success in many ways including growing our food bank and offering you, the parents/guardians opportunities to increase your involvement in your child(ren)’s education.
This year our focus is literacy. As I mentioned we received a grant to help us provide the resources for success with our literacy plan. We are empowering our teachers, through professional development, on different ways to meet all of their students where they are as readers and then to help their students improve. I want to invite you to join our staff in helping our students improve their literacy skills. You can achieve this by encouraging them to read more and if they are too young to read themselves, you can read to them. Have them read to you or to their siblings. The library is a great place to get books. Be sure to get books that will interest your student. The more relevant the book is to them the more likely they are to read. We will be working on literacy skills in all subject areas, so watch the homework your students are bringing home and assist them as necessary. With your support and encouragement your student will have a great school year.
