Principal's Message

Ms. Jamie Hayes

Our Mission:

The mission of Carol Moseley Braun Elementary School is to cultivate, motivate, and create compassionate learners who use determination and innovative thinking to build a strong academic foundation in the 21st century learning environment.

 

June 2019

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is hard to imagine that we have now completed the 2018-2019 school year. This year has been action-packed with changes, accomplishments and events. Together we’ve learned much and shared experiences that will remain with us in the years to come.

Our teachers embraced the use of technology in the classroom by using their JTouch Boards to present their subject matter in various ways. They provided hands-on, creative activities as well as small group instruction to engage the students in their lessons. Workshops were attended on Close Reading, Social Emotional Learning and Guided Math:  ‘Practical Strategies to Differentiate your Math Instruction,” just to name a few.  Our dedicated and committed teachers gave of themselves inside and outside of the classroom to encourage the children to be the best that they could be.  They truly are a special group of educators!

Our parents worked as team players with the teachers, supporting their children and ensuring that they got the most out of their education.  Parents, please continue this academic support during the summer by finding ways to keep your children excited about learning. Make reading a priority for your child by ensuring that they read for at least a half hour each day.  I’m excited to announce that this year we have implemented a Summer Reading Initiative.  On Wednesday, June 19th from 1-3 pm and Friday, June 21st from 9-11am we will be giving away FREE books at CMB (ONE free pack per student).  Students will receive a raffle ticket that will be entered for prizes for each book they read and log this summer. We are very excited about our reading initiative and look forward to seeing all of our students during those dates.

Along with reading this summer, I would like you to find fun ways to help your child practice math skills. Have them practice their multiplication tables and also check out the multiplication.com website for various multiplication games.  Encourage your child to write postcards when you’re on a trip, or keep a vacation journal. Leave notes to your child in unexpected places, and encourage him/her to write back to you.  Be creative, but most of all, make learning fun!

To our sixth graders--the CMB teachers and staff wish you all the best as you move to on middle school.  We look forward to hearing from you in the future and know that each of you have gained a firm educational foundation while at CMB. 

Parents, if this is your last child to leave CMB, the staff would like to thank you for all of your support.  To those of you who are leaving us for new places, we wish you all the best. For our returning families, the first full day of school will be Monday, August 19th. We look forward to seeing you all at our Annual Back to School Carnival, Saturday, August 24, 2019 from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm at Caroline Sibley School.

As we approach next school year, we would like to strengthen our Parent Involvement Program by increasing the number of parents who participate in our school related activities. We truly appreciate your support. As the old adage says, “It takes a village to raise a child!”

Enjoy a restful and replenishing summer with your families!

We Believe…Excellence, Humanization and Pride!

Educationally yours,
Ms. Jamie Hayes, Principal
