Our targeted learning focus at MES is Ponder, Persevere, and Prove it! At Mammoth Elementary, students will persevere through challenges and become active problem solvers. Through extensive professional development and collaboration, our staff decided on these key principles as a focus for all students everyday. We reach these goals through our daily best practices of Conferencing and Daily 5, Number Sense Routines and writing with Claim Evidence Reasoning.
We focus on the expectations and guiding behavioral guidelines embodied in our acronym PAWS - Practice Respect & Responsibility, Accept Others, Work to Succeed and Show Kindness.
We value our community and families. We have a number of fun and educational opportunities for families starting with our Husky Pups Days in August, a PTO potluck on November 16th and an educational night in January. We ask all families to update your contact information in the Aeries Parent Portal, which is so important for our safety plans. We also ask all families to download the Parent Square app which will help you understand the latest information from our teachers.
In my second year as proud Principal at Mammoth Elementary, I cannot wait to see each and every one of our Husky Pups and get to know you even better this year. I look forward to supporting our staff and students to Ponder, Persevere, and Prove it! We are looking forward to learning a new science curriculum this year. We adopted Great Minds PhD Science (family resources linked here), and I cannot wait to see our students become inquisitive scientists. In mathematics, we are in an adoption year and piloting new curriculum including Illustrative Mathematics (family resources) and Eureka Mathematics (family resources). We continue to utilize Benchmark for Language Arts and English Language Development.
Thank you for your support to make 2022-2023 the best year yet!
