Greetings Healey Families:
What an amazing week! Out Instructional Leadership and School Site Council Teams met, our teachers began their year-long professional development trajectory, we had a successful Healey Families’ fundraiser at Flatbread Pizza and we ended with the City Year/ Biogen Day of Service. All and all, it was a productive, happy week and I am proud of the work our children, staff and families have completed.
A few items to note. First, the Healey Site Council has agreed to extend our ‘call for nominations’. If you are interested in a seat on our Healey Site Council, please email me no later than Friday September 20, 2019. Please expect additional information regarding an election early next week. At our last meeting we discussed Off Site Learning and its role in the ongoing development of our children. A rich part of the Healey School program, Off Site Learning is designed to enhance those standards-based units of study covered in our curriculum. More, they offer unique learning experiences for our students as well as an opportunity for social interaction and skills development beyond the school day. As your principal, I value Off Sight Learning and look forward to developing those systems that allow for educators, families and students to share the responsibility of managing these programs, as well as the responsibility of respectfully engaging in conversation about the work.
