  •  Elevate "Whole school, whole community, whole child""

    Dear Rebecca Turner Elementary School Families and Community,

     Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  This school year will bring new challenges, learning experiences, and accomplishments for our school community.

     I am pleased to inform you that the New York State Education Department has named Rebecca Turner School a Recognition School (a high achieving school)! This reassures that our school initiatives are moving our students and school community in the right direction.

    The theme for this school year is Elevate: Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child”  The instructional program for the 2019-2020 school year will focus on the following areas to support our efforts in closing the achievement gap:

    • Implementing research-based strategies and targeted instruction to improve student achievement
    • Expanding the use of technology for students, staff, and families
    • Sustaining a safe and positive learning environment
    • Strengthening family engagement

     Team leadership, collaborative planning, data-driven decision making, and research-based strategies for increasing student achievement are at the forefront of our goals and objectives for the 2019-2020 school year.  The progress towards achieving these goals will be communicated quarterly in the Eagle Newsletter for parents and community members.

     I look forward to another positive and productive school year with the staff, students, families, and community of Rebecca Turner Elementary School……home of the soaring eagles!

     Sincerely,

    Jamal Doggett,

    Principal
