Principal’s Message 2016-2017

August 2016

Welcome to the Ryan School, a community proud to have dedicated students and staff.  We strive to make learning exciting and in the process build a sense of self and community.  Our school motto, Work hard. Be kind. Anything is possible. Woof!, clearly echoes this sentiment.

One focus we will have this year is on Social Emotional Learning (SEL).  This topic and skills will be taught through formal lessons and curriculum as well as “teachable moments.”  Each unique opportunity will help our student body learn to embrace differences among peers as well as celebrate those things that make each of us unique.

This year we will continue to work on the three T’s: Thinking, Teaming and Technology. We will continue to extend the flexibility of technology to our parents and guardians by maintaining students’ progress in the Aspen Portal. All students have a Google account and we continue to work on ways for students to demonstrate their learning using this platform.

Lastly, through our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC), we will continue to reach out to provide opportunities for parents and guardians to volunteer and participate actively in the Ryan School Community. We are excited about the work we do and embrace a strong home/school connection.

Thank you for your continued support and efforts on behalf of our children.
