Dear Spencer Trail Families,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! At Spencer Trail, we believe in the importance of providing an experience where children are given the opportunity to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. We look forward to watching the tremendous growth that occurs in the early years of school. We are amazed every single school year at how much our students learn!
In order for us to be successful, we ask you to work with us as partners in education. Open communication is highly encouraged. If you have questions or concerns, we recommend giving us a call. Any member of the Spencer Trail Staff is more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Additionally, you will receive various newsletters throughout each month. We also urge families to refer to the NLSD website at www.nlsd122.org for the most current district wide information. The district website is a wonderful resource for parents.
This year we are looking forward to providing an iPad for every kindergarten student to utilize throughout the school day. Children growing up in social conditions where technology has been an integral part of their lives are considered “Digital Natives”. Research indicates that Digital Natives are especially motivated to learn utilizing technology. Our hope is that providing access to technology at a young age will assist our students in achieving academic success.
Once again, welcome to Spencer Trail! I cannot wait to share the ’16-’17 school year with you and your child!
