DAILY ASSIGNMENTS – Students in Kindergarten through 5th grade are required to complete their daily assignments. Please encourage your child to complete their required assignments by providing a specific place, without television and with as few distractions as possible. Check and praise your child for their hard work. Please support them by making sure that their assignments are in their backpack ready to be turned in the following day.
CLASSROOM VISITATIONS - Parents are invited to visit their child’s classroom teacher before or after school or by appointment. Please ask teacher if you would like to sit in the classroom.
FOCUS - Our focus this year is to incorporate more academic rigor in our instructional programs. We hope to increase the number of high achieving students who qualify for Seattle Public Schools Academically Gifted program, Spectrum, as we believe all students can achieve high standards of learning. When students learn in a safe and nurturing environment, they will strive to attain exceptionally high levels of academic achievement. Wing Luke considers ourselves lucky to educate students from many different cultures, backgrounds, and varying academic levels. We will strive to give each student the opportunity to achieve success in all of his/her endeavors at school.
We understand that everyone needs to work in a safe and secure environment. Parents and students are encouraged to support Wing Luke’s “Code of Behavior.” With everyone’s support and compliance, our students and teachers will be able to work in an environment that encourages learning and academic growth.
Family involvement is an important part of every student’s success. We are committed to working with you and your family to create an excellent education for your child. If you would like to talk about the upcoming year or become involved at Wing Luke Elementary, please contact me. I can be reached by telephone at (206) 252-7630 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking forward to a wonderful year at Wing Luke Elementary School. It takes a cohesive, well-tuned team to be successful. Let’s make this the best year ever, by working together for our students!
