  • November 2014

    Dear Conn-West Families, 

    Happy Fall!  Time really does fly when you are having fun. It’s hard to believe that November is upon us and we have already completed an entire quarter of school. While we are excited about moving forward, I would like to reflect on one very memorable event before saying a final goodbye to October.  On our Socktober Day students and staff collected over 250 pairs of socks to donate to families in need. This was just one shining example of how Conn-West students demonstrate EXCELLENCE in learning AND character.

    At our Quarter 1 Awards Assembly, we gave out over 500 pencils, certificates and medals to students for academic, citizenship and attendance achievements. We are proud of our students for their dedication and commitment to learning. GO COUGARS!

    One of our primary goals is to increase student achievement.  Our plans to do so are outlined in our
    2014-2015 School Improvement Plan (SIP). This plan lays out our goals for the school year that are centered on helping all of our students achieve academic success. Our instructional priorities for this school year include: creating lessons and activities that are aligned to the Missouri Learning Standards, technology integration, student engagement strategies and use of questioning to promote higher-order thinking and enhance problem solving skills.  Learn more about the Conn-West SIP and data results for Quarter 1 at the November Principal’s PIE / LINC Meeting on Thursday, November 6th at 6:00 p.m.

    Thank you to all of our parents who attended Parent-Teacher Conferences last month. We had close to 90% parent participation and we know that together we are making a difference!  Our next big event will be our Family Literacy FUN Night being held on November 20th.  Join us for some fun with reading and writing.  Every student in attendance will take home a new book!

    Our Average Daily Attendance for the month of October was 96.0% and we had over 90% of our students in school at least 90% of the time!  We are proud of our students who report to school on time each day Respectful, Responsible, Ready to Learn and Lead!  Stay informed about all things Conn-West by viewing the “Pawprint” newsletter and following us on Twitter @CWES_Cougars. Thank you for being our partners in education, we appreciate the support!
