Wow, how time flies! It has been an exciting year of learning and growing here at Shalimar. In addition to the growing, we are also changing as we prepare for the Common Core standards. If you, as a parent, are not familiar with these national standards, I encourage you to become familiar by visiting our school and district webpage and accessing links to learn about this major shift in the way we will educate your child. Our staff has, and will continue to be, trained in order to deliver excellent instruction based on these standards. Other changes will occur to our physical building and procedures to promote safety and security. Change can make us feel uncomfortable, but only if we let it!
Finally, this summer break should provide you the opportunity for rest and relaxation. One of the best ways to relax and calm the mind is to read. Please remember that reading with your child every night will help them a great deal with being prepared for next school year. You might also find ways to work in some basic math fact practice. Remember that the main office is open all summer and staff members are on-hand to help you in any way possible. I hope you have a wonderful summer filled with fun and laughter!
