within the Catholic tradition.
From the Principal's Desk
For those of you who do not know, I teach 7th grade Math, 8th grade Pre-Algebra and HS Álgebra 1 at Epiphany. By this time of the year my students are exploring and learning how to solve equations and inequalities. The concepts are brand new and as such, the students must persevere and accept that they may see successes and challenges along the way.
On the athletic field, at the dance studio or learning to play a new song on the piano may involve hours of practice until the skill is mastered. “Practice, practice, practice” seems to be the mantra. Reading, writing, spelling, grammar, math, map skills, and scientific theories also require regular practice. Students must learn how to study and memorize important content material like their times tables, the parts of speech, and vocabulary. Each academic year is a building block to the next. So essentially, trial and error and persistence become essential to long term successes. As teachers and parents we owe it to our young people to help them to reach attainable goals, foster self satisfaction, independence and resiliency.
Next week you will receive your child’s mid-quarter progress report. I encourage you to take some time to review it with your child, check RenWeb in grades 3-8 for specifics on the various assignments completed thus far, and help your child create a plan that supports “being the best version of himself or herself”. As always, your student’s teachers are here to answer any questions you may have.
Please feel free to join us at the 10:30 am Mass at Epiphany on Sunday. Epiphany students and alumni will be participating in all of the liturgical ministries. We will have fellowship in the school library after Mass with donuts, juice and coffee.
