A Message from the Caledonia Family

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Your Caledonia Family wants to welcome you to a brand new year…a brand new decade!!!! The 2019-2020 academic year has reached its midpoint and there are roughly 50 days before state testing. Your Caledonia Family has been busy analyzing data and we have discovered a glaring area of concern…MATH. The staff conducted a root cause analysis and over 97% of our instructors declared that our students are lacking in math fundamentals.  We have crafted a response that will effectively address this deficit in real time. Each week will focus on an area and
Friday students will be rewarded for their efforts for overall, improvement and achievement. The whole initiative will be framed in a fun fashion, which is the way your Caledonia Family likes to do it. Stay tuned for information and updates regarding the Fun Fact Friday Initiative!!
Attendance remains a point of emphasis. Last month, we met the state standard at 93.1 but fell short of our overall goal.  January 13, 2020 kicks our Perfect Attendance Extravaganza Part II. Make sure your children are present, so they will be able to participate in all the fun activities and be eligible to receive the prizes on January 31, 2020 at the Perfect Attendance Extravaganza. Seventy –One students had a ball at the inaugural celebration. The students received wonderful prizes AND prizes were raffled off to parents, as well. The January 31 st event will feature the same. You and your child could walk away with something special to commemorate and celebrate this achievement.
