Thankful for Parkview School!
I am amazed at what goes on in our wonderful school. Every day I see incredible learning taking place at all levels throughout the school. Parkview School truly is a school I am proud to work for. But just what is it that makes Parkview so awesome? What separates us from every other school?
William Bennett in his book “The Educated Child” lists ten signs of a good school. As I went through the list and thought about what we have and what we do at Parkview, I started to get a better understanding of why we work at such a great school. Listed below are those ten signs. See if you agree with me that this list reaffirms why we have such a fine educational institution here at Parkview School.
1. A Safe and Orderly Atmosphere.
Discipline and academic success go hand in hand.
2. A Clear Academic
Good schools spell out the knowledge and skills that children must acquire.
3. Attention to Character.
Good schools treat children as moral beings. They teach about right and wrong. Teachers help train children in habits that lead to better lives (have you hear of the Leader in Me Program from your child?)
4. Fine Teachers.
Teachers are the heart of any educational enterprise. Good schools are full of adults of sound character who, like children, know the material, and effectively impart knowledge and skills. Good schools reward greatness in teaching and refuse to tolerate mediocrity.
5. Strong Leadership.
It is rare to find a good school without strong leadership at all levels.
6. High Expectations.
Attitudes toward learning often become self-fulfilling prophecies. Schools that maintain high standards get greater academic achievement from children.
Achievement rises when teachers give homework and children conscientiously do it.
8. Evaluation and Feedback.
Good schools hold all their kids accountable for meeting standards. They monitor how children are performing. They provide feedback to teachers and pupils.
9. Parent Involvement.
Good schools are surrounded by moms and dads who monitor and assist with academics, stay in touch with teachers, and raise children who are well-behaved and ready to learn.
10. A Sense of Community.
A good school is a welcoming place where youngsters know that adults care deeply about them. All its participants– grownups and children alike–share enthusiasm, pride, and a sense of purpose.
I am thankful for Parkview School and have a wonderful Spring Break.
